Community, Family, and Food: 255 savetheturtlescanada: IT鈥橲 TIME TO STOP USING SINGLE-USE PLASTICS!!! We recently sparked conversation amongst the Tumblr community about our global plastic usage when we first introduced our reusable straws. While we were aggressive in pointing out that change needed to be made, some of you stressed that plastic usage went beyond just straws. We took what聽you told us in wanting more products that could assist in lowering our plastic usage and have come up with a solution for another plastic culprit: single-use produce bags. While grocery stores worldwide are phasing out single-use grocery bags at the till, produce bags still remain. On average, 4 bags per family are used per day, adding up to a staggering 1,500 short-lived bags per year! The average plastic bag is used for聽a whopping聽12 minutes!聽That same bag will take centuries to degrade and may cause irreversible damage to marine life and our oceans. Making the switch to reusables will make a difference - in the health of our planet and the long-lasting freshness of your food. They are not just for produce either. You can store travel items and almost any household item. Perfect for toys, fruit, coins, medicine, cables, cosmetics, accessories and much more. Use them to keep things together during grocery shopping, camping, fishing, garden harvest, beach, and travels.聽 We hope you鈥檒l join us in our effort to continue the conversation surrounding the reduction of plastic use and keeping our oceans clean.聽 Check out our Reusable Bags HERE

Bananas looked like lemons wtf Isn鈥檛 this more of a combination of selective breeding and GMOs? Not just GMOs? Yes. 聽But people talk about how GMO鈥檚 are聽鈥渦nnatural鈥, yet for centuries humanity has been exploiting mutations in animals and plants to produce food for themselves. GMO鈥檚 are simply the process of inducing these mutations reliably. People hear聽鈥淟ettuce being modified with scorpion DNA鈥 and think that we鈥檙e now eating scorpions. 聽But, in reality, they鈥檙e taking a tiny bit of scorpion DNA and splicing it into the plant. 聽Why? 聽So the plant will produce poison that is not harmful to humans but will deter insects, reducing the use of pesticide, which CAN be harmful to humans and the environment. GMOs are producing rice that can survive flooding, which makes rice more reliable yields and will prevent food shortages in poor nations that rely on said crops for staple food. GMOs are also creating spider-goat hybrids. 聽Why? So we can splice web production into the goat鈥檚 udders. 聽We鈥檒l be able to spin huge quantities of spider silk, enough to reliably create spider silk cables and ropes, which have more tensile strength than steel. I for one am glad I live in a time where watermelons aren鈥檛 giant tomato abominations The issue with GMOs is that corporations like Monsanto are patenting GMOs and arresting indigenous farmers for cross pollinating with they seeds. But there is nothing dangerous about the science. ^This. The problem isn鈥檛 the science, it鈥檚 what capitalism does with that science. this should be in the largest letters we鈥檝e got, plastered everywhere until it gets through people鈥檚 heads: The problem isn鈥檛 the science, it鈥檚 what capitalism does with that science. Did you just say spider goats? He said spider goats. Did you all read him talking about spider goats or am I hallucinating
