Bits and Pieces

Today’s post is a bit rambling. I’ve come across several pieces of information that I think are good to know about, but each one isn’t necessarily enough for a full blog post. For Friday, I’ve decided to put them all in one disjointed post.

◊ According to Earth First, we should keep drinking organic milk; it’s helping. The Organic Center came up with a way to measure the benefits of organic milk. In 2008, 40 million pounds of fertilizer were avoided thanks to organic dairy practices. Read all about it here.

◊ The EPA has a comprehensive carbon emissions calculator. It’s worth checking out if you have the time.

◊ According to Scientific American, scientists accidentally found a link between Autism and vinyl flooring. The study was originally designed to look at allergies and indoor air pollutants.

◊ Enviroblog has some interesting information on air pollution.

Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a nice weekend.
