    David Katz: Solving Our Plastic Pollution Problem & Poverty

    in Environment

    The future may indeed be in plastics.  David Katz is the founder and CEO of The Plastic Bank, an ambitious social enterprise that aims to solve the plastic pollution problem and poverty at the same time.


    The Plastic Bank provides an opportunity for the world’s poor to collect and trade plastic waste as a currency. That's right.  Plastic waste found at beaches and other waterways is turned into a source of income for our world's most marginalized citizens.  What's more, plastic collectors can get access to 3D printers creating entrepreneurial opportunities.  


    Today David Katz, who is the President of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (E.O.) Vancouver Chapter and recent winner of the organization's Global Citizen Award, will share his inspiration for reducing global poverty and stopping plastic from entering our oceans.

    Environmental Awareness: Plastic Pollution in Australia

    Environmental Awareness: Plastic Pollution in Australia with Elizabeth Beaumont 


    Elizabeth has worked as a Liver Intensive Care Nurse and has returned to her studies, this time in the area of Sustainability at University of Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia. During a merging of two assignments that concerned water extraction for the bottled water industry and the ingestment of plastics by sea mammals and birds she decided to approach the senior management of the university and make formal presentations to phase out and subsequently ban the sale of water housed in Polyethylene terephthalate at the University. She was successful making her uni the 1st in Queensland and only the 2nd in Australia to ban the sale of water in P.E .T. This will result in a massive reduction of carbon emissions. The university has installed 3 ProAcqua machines the greatest innovation of water vends that ever have been invented. In 2014 she travelled to Cambodia with the University and was asked by the Minister of Tourism to advise on plastic pollution there.  Her work to communicate the dangers of this issue has been enhanced by her steady efforts to connect with other interested people including, experts in the broad field of plastic pollution.  She actively picks up plastic pollution and volunteers for the Two Hand Project and applauds anyone who picks up plastics. She has for 30 years actively practiced Nichiren Buddhism. Together with her family, Elizabeth enjoys life on a Land for Wildlife property where marsupials, birds and aquatic life live freely in the Hinterland of South East Queensland.

During the show, jory will go on an internet excursion to see if anything backs up his theory on whether or not the genetic disorder has been brought on by common air pollution, over the past 25 years. So, has the increase of the common activity of driving cars over the past 25 years a contributing factor? Listen and then you decide.

    Zapped: The Hazards Of Electronic Pollution

    in Environment

    In todays world, it is impossible to avoid technology. We use it to make our coffee in the morning, text messages to friends, microwave food and work on laptops. Were being zapped! Today 84 % of Americans own a cell phone, 89 million of us watch TV beamed in by satellite and we cant sip a cup of coffee at our local cafe without being exposed to Wi-Fi. The very electronic innovations that have changed our lives are also exposing us, in ways big and small, to an unprecedented number of electromagnetic fields. Invisible pollution surrounds us 24/7, interrupting our bodies natural flow of energy. And for some, that pollution has reached the point of toxicity, causing fatigue, irritability, weakness, and even illness. But we dont have to simply surrender. Ann Louise Gittleman brings forth the latest research into electromagnetic fields to create this groundbreaking guide for every citizen of the wireless age. With the proactive, levelheaded approach that has made her one of our most respected health experts, she not only clarifies the risks but also offers specific, step-by-step information for how anyone can minimize them. From where you place your sofa to when you use your cell phone to what you eat for dinner, Zapped is packed with strategies for avoiding and mitigating the damaging effects of electropollution. As she examines modern life room by room, device by device, Gittleman reveals a master plan for detoxifying your surroundings and protecting yourself and your family. We dont need to abandon our homes or even give up our PDAs to be healthier and happier. Based on the latest scientific data, case studies, and Gittlemans years of clinical practice, Zapped is an empowering guide to living safely with the gadgets we cant live without.
    Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer is joined by Ann Louise Gittleman.

    AQUATIC POLLUTION

    in Environment

     
    Aquatic pollution occurs when a body of water – rivers and seas - is adversely affected due to the addition of large amounts of foreign materials to the water. The sources of water pollution are categorized as being a point source or a non-source point of pollution. Point sources of pollution occur when the polluting substance is emitted directly into the waterway. A pipe spewing toxic chemicals directly into a river is an example. A non-point source occurs when there is runoff of pollutants into a waterway, for instance when fertilizer from a field is carried into a stream by surface runoff.
     
    There are a few types of aquatic pollution:
     
    Toxic; Organic; thermal; ecological
     
    If it is toxic it could be source from a chemical plant spewing into water bodies toxic materials. They could be insecticides, herbicides and industrial compounds. Organic pollution emanates from material like fertilizers and decomposers that use a lot of oxygen from the water bodies.
     
    Thermal pollutants could be water recycled after being used as plant coolants and can contribute to lowering of oxygen levels in the water bodies.
     
    Ecological pollution when the three pollutants of organic, thermal and toxic combine to pollute water bodies.
