Here in America, we get Mac n Cheese full of artificial flavors and colors - not so in the UK. Get the details and sign the petition asking Kraft not to feed our kids the extra bad stuff.
Speaking of what kids get to eat in other countries, check out these school lunches from around the world.
Sure, eating chemicals can be bad for you - but apparently it can also be quite bad to rub them into your skins. EWG has updated their susncreen guide just in time for summer - find out what to avoid just in time for the opening of Sea Cliff Beach.
Washington, DC schools just had their annual Farm to School Day where kids ate fresh, local strawberries and salad greens.
It's not too late to donate books to the Friends of the Sea Cliff Library for the annual Garage Sale Day Book Sales Fundraiser. Drop off books at the village library this week.
Petitions to Sign and Letters of Outrage to write
The Center for Science in the Public Interest has drafted a letter to the Coca-Cola company that you can sign asking that they not promote their obesity-inducing sodas with actual Olympic athletes. Seems somewhat misleading to kids.
From the Environmental Working Group:
The response to last week's petition to the United States Department of Agriculture has been overwhelming!
As a result, we have sent Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and several other USDA employees the signatures of nearly 55,000 EWG supporters demanding that tax dollars not get spent on disinformation campaigns about pesticides on food.
This is one of the strongest responses EWG has ever seen from our online activists. Thank you so much.
If you didn't get a chance last week, it's not too late for you to add your name and ask your friends and family to add theirs as well. The USDA has not yet released this year's data on pesticide residues on produce. Pesticide companies and big agribusiness interests have cranked up their pressure on the USDA to spin the upcoming release of government pesticide tests and downplay risks.
Click here to sign our petition today. It's unacceptable for your tax dollars to fund disinformation about pesticides on food.
Fireworks Sat. night over Hempstead Harbor!
