Plastic free tea bags
Synthetic tea bags have been brought up in the past as a product that can harm the environment. However, did you know that it can also harm our bodies when we consume tea? Synthetic tea bags are melting microplastics into our cups. These plastic free tea brands are great because they differ by being biodegradable and compostable. https://www.independent.co.uk/extras/indybest/food-drink/best-plastic-free-tea-bags-clipper-t2-pukka-twinings-a8982626.html

Extracting CO2 from the atmosphere to make fuel
Based in Canada, Carbon Engineering’s Direct Air Capture system directly removes CO2 from the atmosphere, purifies it, and produces a pipeline-ready compressed CO2 liquid using only energy and water. This CO2 can be combined with non-fossil fuel-generated hydrogen, to produce ultra-low carbon intensity hydrocarbon fuels such as gasoline, diesel, and Jet Fuel-A. www.forbes.com/sites/jamesconca/2019/10/08/carbon-engineering-taking-co2-right-out-of-the-air-to-make-gasoline/

Shoes made with recycled ocean plastic
In 2019 Adidas expects to make 11 million pairs of shoes with recycled ocean plastic. That's more than double what it made in 2018. Adidas says their partnership with Parley for the Oceans has prevented 2,810 tons of plastic from reaching the oceans. And this is just the first step. Adidas is also developing a 100% recyclable shoe called the Futurecraft Loop. This shoe is made to be remade- it can be returned and broken down to create a brand-new pair.  https://www.businessinsider.com/adidas-sneakers-plastic-bottles-ocean-waste-recycle-pollution-2019-8

Breast Cancer Awareness Holiday Decorations
Bravo to the South Hampton Chamber of Commerce Long Island NY for this clever holiday themed display to promote breast cancer awareness. A month-long series of “Paint the Town Pink” events and activities aimed at highlighting the cause and combating breast cancer follows a pink tree lighting event on October 1. Throughout the month of October, village trees will be lit in orange during the day, because they appear pink, and pink lights at night.

Fresh farm pies
Briermere Farm on Long Island NY offers a wonderful selection of pies made with fresh fruit from the farm. People come long distances to buy the pies. We tried the pear one and it was delicious.
