PosiPlanet: Intriguing News & Commentary

Did you know there's a Corporate Death Care industry?

That's right. And it seems that no aspect of our economy is immune to the temptation of greenwashing. Thankfully, there are more than 300 cemeteries and funeral homes across the country offering eco-friendly death care. The Green Burial Council is the standard-bearer for truth and transparency in death care.

Does the SFI EcoLabel Approve Forest Destruction?

I recently attended Eugene, Oregon's famous environmental law conference. In the entryway on the bottom floor of the building where the conference sessions were being held, there were a series of environmental organizational tables including TarSands Blockade, which is using non-violent direct action to stop the construction of KeyStone XL, and Forest Ethics, a national non-profit working to protect our forests. A giant banner hanging above the Forest Ethics table caught my eye. It said, "SFI: Certified Greenwash".

Local Investment Opportunities Networks

You know it's important to "buy local." What if you could also invest local?

As the Slow Money investment movement grows, Local Investment Opportunity Networks, or LIONs are springing up across the country in places as diverse as: Port Townsend, WA, Portland, OR, Ithaca, NY, New York City, and Madison, WI. A LION is simply a way to connect local investors with local businesses that need loans. It’s a potent alternative to Wall Street.

Featured Certification

The GoodWeave label is the assurance that no child labor was used in the making of your rug. In order to earn the GoodWeave label, rug exporters and importers must be licensed under the GoodWeave certification program and sign a legally binding contract to do the following: adhere to the no-child-labor standard and not employ any person under age 14; allow unannounced random inspections by local inspectors; endeavor to pay fair wages to adult workers; and pay a licensing fee that helps support GoodWeave’s monitoring, inspections and education programs. To ensure compliance, independent GoodWeave inspectors make unannounced inspections of each loom. If inspectors find children working, they offer them the opportunity to go to school instead, and the producers lose their status with GoodWeave. To protect against counterfeit labeling, each label is numbered so its origin can be traced to the loom on which the rug was produced.
