Happy Earth Day! The stunning photos above show the Sacred Headwaters, a pristine area of protected land in a remote corner of northern British Columbia. The area is about the size of the entire state of Oregon, and only one tiny road winds through it. (For context, on the US mainland, the farthest you can get from a maintained road is about 20 miles. Oregon is 98,466 square miles.)

On the subject of food waste, there’s this to chew on:

A new film, Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story, may be worth adding to your to-watch list. (See recently released trailer above.)

The film’s Web site says:

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash?

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant’s addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the ‘thrill of the find’ has unexpected consequences.

Featuring interviews with TED lecturer Tristram Stewart and acclaimed author Jonathan Bloom, Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe. Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.

Just Eat It will premiere in Toronto in April 2014.

“A 1st grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class.  She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb.”

all of these children are me

i literally just spit all over my computer laughing

“There are none so blind as Stevie Wonder.”

it’s always darkest before daylight savings time oh my god

when the blind lead the blind, get out of the way

"Everything is broken. Everything. Good people are victims. Bad people are heroes. Dumb is a virtue. Food is poison. Corruption is a national past time. Rapists rape. The poor are left to rot. Religion is business. No one is safe and everyone thinks it’s funny.
Why is the world allowed to be this way. Why doesn’t anyone do anything? Why don’t we fight back? Why is it like this? And then it hit me. It doesn’t matter why. ‘Why' is the bullshit. 'Why' makes you feel better for just thinking the question. The question is… What am I going to do about it?”

From Scarlet, book 1  by B.M. Bendis & Alex Maleev, this quote is just one of many thought-provoking lines in the most blatantly subversive works of art I have ever read. Foregoing the nuances, the subject matter really resonates in today’s world, what with all the “Occupy _______” movements, issues with authority, and the general hopeless of a post-modern society. Definitely recommend reading this!
