The Tasty Benefits of Chia Seeds

My new favorite treat is chia seed drinks. They come in many different flavors and the chia seeds float suspended in the juice and have the feel of small tapioca pearls.

My favorite of the growing number of companies offering chia drinks is Mamma Chia, started by an awesome women named Janie.

This is great, because Fair Trade is an effort to improve the lives of workers around the world by paying them higher wages. 

Moving Towards Safe Chemicals

The American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) is taking the lead in rallying support for the use of safe chemicals in the United States. 

Our current chemical regulatory framework is outdated and inadequate - even when legislation was enacted in 1976. 

The Purest Salt on Earth?

I always read the label. When I shop for groceries, I'm the person standing in the aisle picking up item after item and turning them over to read the ingredients and examine the label.
