Shouldn’t it just be called food? I received a comment from a fellow GreenUp! community member who is quite concerned, “It feels as if nothing is real anymore, not even our food.” You bring up a great point, we need to be extremely concerned about what we are putting in and on our bodies. Food contains now contains Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) at higher rates than ever. You thought pink slime was scary, well meet meat glue, which is not from an episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
Last weekend I was in NYC and I’m always jealous of their public transportation system. The reason I don’t just move there is that I am not too jealous of their weather. Well, I have ALMOST sworn off driving in LA all together. While few and far between, there are still times when I need to drive. This is because LA is set up like a bunch of suburbs and then suburbs of suburbs. The suburb I happen to live in is very walkable, close to bike lanes/paths as the beach is close by and the nearby bus routes are far reaching and run frequently. This makes it possible to leave the car at home most of the time. But if you have no choice but to drive regularly in LA or another city, do yourself a favor and hop on a bus to see a demonstration of how to drive in your city.
