14 companies using recycled plastics to become more sustainable

Insider Inc. receives a commission from our affiliate partners when you buy through our links, but our reporting and recommendations are always independent and objective. Like perms, gaucho pants, and bump-it clips, plastics appear to be trending downwards in the court of public opinion. Why? To be reductive, because the news about plastic is getting scarier, more of us are seeing it, and we lead an increasingly large portion of our lives on public forums (such as Instagram) that generate visibility of environmental issues and the social pressure to mitigate them. It also doesn’t hurt that millennials and Gen Z are confronting the fact that, as their years on planet earth stretch out before them, so too do the rapidly approaching effects of climate change — water shortages, famine, extreme weather, rising sea-levels, and destabilized societies. Bad press for plastic is pervasive. One week it’s a dead whale with 64 pounds of trash in its stomach in Spain. A few weeks later, it’s one with 88 pounds in the Philippines. An impressive number of us could probably rattle off th...

Tanglewood empty nesters were ready for a new location and a new style

Caroline and Doug Bailey turned an extra bedroom in their home into a patio room that looks out to their backyard and its inviting pool. Certainly a wow moment in this lovely home in Tanglewood, it’s filled with things that remind them of one of their favorite places to visit: the Beverly Hills Hotel. Framed Slim Aarons photographs hang on bold green-and-white-striped wallpaper, a pair of Jonathan Adler Chippendale-style faux bamboo chairs have blush cushions, and a tuxedo-style sofa holds more pillows, including a pair made of the legendary Dorothy Draper Brazilliance pattern, repeated in the wallpaper in the en suite bathroom. “My husband and I love the Beverly Hills Hotel. We stay there when we go to LA,” said Caroline. “When we bought this house, we said, ‘Let’s do a whole room like that.’” The Houston native smiles as she looks around the room decorated by Cindy Witmer and Laura Benes of Cindy Witmer Designs, admiring a glass-and-acrylic coffee table that adds a bit of midcentury whimsy. There’s also a quirky faux fiddle-leaf fig tree that’s been painted white. It initially sat in the home’s foyer, then later seemed a better fit for this room’s throwback vibe. The empty ne...

Washington marijuana businesses report glass jars, packaging seized by U.S. Customs agents

Multiple marijuana businesses licensed by the state of Washington are reporting their shipments of glass jars and other packaging is being seized as drug paraphernalia by federal agents at the port of entry in Tacoma. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in response to the claims, is denying any new action to stop shipments bound for companies operating within Washington’s recreational or medicinal markets. The federal agency, responsible for enforcing federal trade laws at points of entry in the United States, reiterated that marijuana remains illegal per the U.S. code. “CBP is not putting a new emphasis on identifying overseas shipments to licensed marijuana businesses in Washington state,” said Jason Givens, a spokesman for the agency based in Seattle, in an emailed response last week to questions about seizures. A spokeswoman for the Port of Tacoma said via email Tuesday they weren’t “aware of any seizures for this commodity through our gateway.” But Washington attorneys and the firms they represent provided documentation to The Spokesman-Review showing seizures of glassware valued in the hundreds of thousands of dollars in September. The companies provided the information o...

Dead rats, ball of hair and roach on a cooked sausage close Philadelphia eateries

When Philadelphia health inspectors find two dead rats in a basement area along with feces and flies, you know this edition of Clean Plates will be a memorable one. Inspectors also found a skinned cantaloupe and pineapples covered in ants, drain flies on a beer dispensing hose, a roach on cooked sausage that was inside a steam table, and, of course, mouse feces everywhere. A handwash sink in one retail area was blocked by plastic bags and a ball of hair. Let that visual image sink in for a moment. Inspectors visit nearly 1,000 eateries and food retailers every two weeks. Each inspection is generally regarded as a snapshot in time, and not necessarily a reflection of day-to-day conditions. Most violations were corrected immediately in the presence of an inspector. To look up reports on a specific Philadelphia restaurant, or a Montgomery, Bucks, or Gloucester County eatery, visit philly.com/cleanplates. Flies were landing on the slicer in the food prep area; the slicer had an accumulation of food residue on the food contact surfaces and was not being washed, rinsed and sanitized at least every four hours; food including spinach, turkey bacon, cole slaw, and cut lettuce were not h...

Save Animals Like It’s Your Job in Vegan Work Boots

Awesome first responders and construction and utility workers often save animals’ lives. And it’s easy to save even more by wearing vegan work boots. One great thing about working for PETA is that we’re always being sent photos and videos of construction workers, first responders, and utility company employees saving animals’ lives during their workdays. There’s just something day-making about seeing a worker in a hardhat cradling a frightened kitten. Of course, people who regularly rescue dogs and cats wouldn’t want to be wearing them simultaneously. But since leather is made from the skin of dogs, cats, cows, pigs, goats, sheep, alligators, ostriches, kangaroos, and other animals, if you wear leather, there’s no real way of knowing whose skin you’re in. What we do know for certain is that all leather comes from animals who value their lives and don’t want to die. So, since this hardworking group of people is saving animals like it’s their job, PETA wanted to make that job a little easier. We’re offering a quick guide to leather-free, vegan work boots for men and women. If your 9-to-5 involves actual ladders instead of just corporate ones, you need more safeguarding than a mere...

Autism conference room makeover at University of Iowa includes interactive artwork

IOWA CITY — The conference room inside the child and adolescent psychiatry unit at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital used to be quite sterile, with off-white walls and a lack of pizzazz. Dr. Peter Daniolos, a psychiatrist and training director at the clinic, said he thought the interior room — which physicians, patients and their families utilize heavily each day — needed an overhaul. “I think our spaces impact us in so many ways … We’re in here every day and all day and if the room is not really beautiful what does that say about the service we offer and how does that impact the way we feel about our work?” he asked. Daniolos thought the room really needed a window, but they couldn’t just bore a hole into the wall. “Yet art can create a window-like space,” Daniolos said. “So we began to have a conversation: How can we create something that can bring color and light, and how can we also bring in some of the amazing children and families in our community that we are working with, kids with developmental disabilities and autism?” The result is a transformed space, with bright, colorful walls, modern green and yellow furniture and a large, interactive art piece titl...
