The full extent of the damage from Hurricane Michael is still not known. But, when the storm hit Florida’s panhandle, it definitely did more than destroy property and accumulate a human death toll close to 30. Part of the hurricane’s devastation included sweeping away the nests of threatened baby loggerhead sea turtles that were hatching on Florida beaches after damage from previous storms. From May through October, the Gulfside Beaches in Florida’s Franklin County are dotted with sea turtle...

When you cook at home, there is nothing better than using fresh, seasonal produce as ingredients in your recipes. But, it can be difficult to remember what is in season near you throughout the year. Luckily, there is an app for that, thanks to GRACE Communications Foundation, a non-profit organization aiming to boost awareness and support for sustainable food initiatives. Last year, the foundation launched their Seasonal Food Guide app (available for Android and IOS) just before National Farmer’s...

According to a new study that looked at sea, rock, and lake salt, 90 percent of the table salt brands sold around the world contain microplastics. Several years ago, we discovered that microplastics were in sea salt, but we didn’t know how extensive the geographical spread was until now. Researchers in South Korea and at Greenpeace East Asia tested 39 salt brands, and 36 of them had microplastics. This study — published in this month’s journal of Environmental Science & Technology —...

The changing autumn climate felt in recent years has proven deadly for moose populations in the North Eastern United States. A longer fall season and warmer winter weathers have caused winter tick populations to thrive at the expense of their majestic hosts. Experts who have been alarmed by the unfolding ravage on New England moose warn "we're sitting on a powder keg" as calf survival has fallen to an all-time low of 30 percent while blighted adults - barely recognizable from the onslaught - are...

Andrea Kaplan-Chambers and her husband have owned their Austin, Texas, home for a year now, but the path there wasn't easy. The couple were both freelancers when they were applying for mortgages, (Kaplan-Chambers worked as a contract programmer and her husband owned a small sound design business) something they didn't know was going to be as big of a problem as it ended up being. Though they both had thriving businesses, it turns out that the bank was skeptical of the couple's financial profile. "It was impossible to get approved for a mortgage as a small business owner, even with good credit, no debt, [and 10 years of savings]," says Kaplan-Chambers. READ MORE »

I've been cooking for most of my adult life, and I've never actually been completely sure just what that drawer under the oven is for. It seems like a good enough place to store baking pans, but that also feels like wasted space, or that it should actually be for something besides storage. I've never really used that drawer for anything. Honestly, most of the time I forget it's even there until I can't find the muffin tins, and my husband tells me to look in the oven drawer.
