Description: “For all of those who are unfamiliar with the term “culling”, it is simply a less harsh term than the word “killing”. Usually culling is done in animal groups when there is overpopulation of a specific species. But now it’s you. It is our time to be “Culled”. It is known as “the thinning of the herd”. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” Is the first commandment of the Georgia Guidestones coming to fruition? Is the Great Culling being carried out now? For those who continue to not pay attention, you are the “Sheep” and you will be “culled”.”

It comes from the sky. Turn the faucet, and it pours out in what seems like an infinite amount. We use it to drink, bathe, to grow food, to cook.

Two master’s students at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, Joshua Noble and Hyeona Yang, have designed a jacket that enables the wearer to store and filter rainwater that is safe to drink on their backs. It even comes with a straw!
The jacket is made of plastic and purifies the water via iodine and charcoal filters that can easily be changed. The purified rainwater is distributed into various pockets in the back of the coat to prevent imbalances and sloshing. The jacket’s durability has not been tested given the short project timeline.
The ingenuity displayed here is a way to approach the water issue on a micro level. Albeit a progressive solution to a pressing water crisis, we still desperately need a macro level approach.
The Story of Bottled Water, employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap. Over 5 minutes, the film explores the bottled water industry’s attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces.
The film concludes with a call to take back the tap, not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.
According to a recent study in the Archives of Pediatric Adolescent Medicine minority parents consume bottled water more often than white Americans and this has become a topic of discussion now. I wondered about these claims when I saw the post Why Minorities Love Bottled Water on theroot.com. Do minorities love bottled water? Who are we considering minorities? Continue reading →
