If you have two minutes to spare, Donald Trump talking about hairspray is guaranteed to be the best (and probably worst) thing you’ve laid your eyes on all day. I’m personally straight-up done watching these videos of Trump acting a fool — unless Samantha Bee masterfully tackles it on her show — but this is pretty… READ MORE »

Today is Earth Day and Monday was 4/20, which means we’re smack in the middle of a confluence of fascinating issues; specifically, issues surrounding hemp, America’s needlessly illegal and potentially ecologically beneficial agricultural phantom. Scientists, farmers, retailers, and even growing numbers of American lawmakers across the political spectrum know that hemp and marijuana are chemically and… READ MORE »

Today in apocalyptic sounding headlines, NASA scientist Jay Famiglietti was published in the Los Angeles Times’ op-ed section saying that California has about one year left of water. This has been caused by a variety of factors that started well before the droughts.

I remember the ’80s and early-’90s as a kid, when… READ MORE »

Vegan scientists in San Francisco (of course) have built a startup (of course) to make synthetic dairy milk. I’m intrigued!

The synthetic milk would be created by inserting DNA sequences from cows into yeast, from which milk proteins could then be extracted. Fat would be taken from vegetable sources, and vitamins, minerals, and… READ MORE »

What’s a brotest, you ask? Oh, you don’t ask, because you immediately get the idea? Let this red-Kool-Aid-swilling Reagansexual elaborate anyway:
It derives from when we see evil in the world, and bros are sent to fix it.
He’s referring to the People’s Climate March, by the way. … READ MORE »

I have a pretty hardcore to-go coffee habit. Every time I buy coffee in a disposable paper cup (which is often), part of me cringes inside at the thought of it filling up a landfill. Obviously, this doesn’t stop me from buying it, which is part of why I’m telling you — to publicly guilt… READ MORE »

I am what one might call a leisurely bather. If one wished for some reason to paint me in a less flattering light, “bathroom hog” may or may not be the term best used to describe my habits. I can say with all honesty that I have never taken a shower in under 20 minutes;… READ MORE »

April is Earth Month, so naturally it’s the perfect opportunity for the fashion world (and, it goes without saying, the world over) to stand up and do what they can to take action.

Who is to blame for Mother Earth’s metastasizing environmental crisis? Women, of course. Are we tossing out too many sanitary napkins? Drinking too many lattes in cardboard cups? Well, yes, but this is more serious. Us ladies are “wasting” billions of liters of water every year leaving the water running while we shave our legs. READ MORE »

You’ve seen prom dresses fashioned with duct tape. The next DIY sartorial eyeful is a wedding dress made completely from newspaper.

Not many starlets would talk about pee on “The Tonight Show.” But then again, not many stars would ditch fake-baking in Hollywood for composting at an Oregon eco-village.
