Tropicana Wins Non-GMO Project Certification

Happier news from Tropicana: The company has won their Non-GMO Project Seal. This move is an attempt to increase transparency and make sure consumers trust the label.

Man Buys Sea Turtles to Set Them Free

And a New Zealand man, Arron Culling, saw sea turtles for sale at his local market and decided to take matters into his own hands. Culling and an associate of his purchased the turtles and set them free! They have released 10 turtles so far and their heroic actions were praised on Facebook. However approximately 42,000 sea turtles are legally killed each year, perhaps Culling’s actions will inspire others to help protect wildlife.
