Wednesday Roundup: BPA, Oysters and Bees

There’s lots of interesting eco-news floating around out there this week, including what’s happening with BPA liners in cans, a new portable solar panel product launch, and Oysters!


EWG has released a list on which food manufacturers have gone a long way in removing BPA from cans – and which ones haven’t. (Tip: Buy fresh or frozen food and avoid the cans entirely!)

Seriously, how cool is this for a Father’s Day gift?! A men’s toiletry kit made from upcycled fire hose liner from Oxgut Hose Co. Badass and brilliant.

Oysterfest Niagara is this weekend. Dillon’s Small Batch Distillers and Tide And Vine Oyster company have organized this sweet event, perfect for the oyster-lover in your life.

Great news: The Province of Ontario is the first to take action against bee-killing neonicotinoids, with reductions starting on July 1.

Really neat product launch: Solartab, the portable solar panel that basically looks like an iPad. How nifty!

Finally, we like straws in our house, but the plastic bugs me and I break glass. No really, I break unbreakable glass. It’s a thing. So I cannot WAIT to try out these sustainable straws – made from straw!

Got any cool eco-news to share? Post in the comments!

    Hmmm, that does create a dilemma: Should we buy food in the low BPA packaging to support these vendors — or just go with fresh or frozen food? Wish we had an Oysterfest down here in Texas — Yum!
