Environment News Includes Marches, Waste, and Donuts

Folks used to sit on the porch shootin’ the breeze. For many now, the porch is a cubicle and the breeze is digital. These are a few of the stories floating around our cyber porch today—and they focus on the environment.

Marches and Summits:  As a U.N. summit on climate change approaches, thousands of people marched in cities around the world Sunday to urge their leaders to act boldly to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that are driving the changes.

Waste and Want:  Harvest Media offers six insightful articles about food, waste, and the environment. One source claims that approximately 40% of all food produced in the United States is wasted.

Donuts and the Forests:  Environmentalists say two major doughnut chains got a little sweeter as Krispy Kreme and Dunkin' Brands both made commitments to source palm oil for frying their goodies from suppliers who are not clear-cutting forests.
