Can a Loaf of Bread Decrease Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

While much of conventional farming is doing more harm than good to the climate, wheat may be an important crop for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

So, would wheat still be such a dietary pariah if it could help to curb climate change?

According to a new paper published in the recent journal Nature Communications, we may want to give wheat another chance. “The study found that a combination of a few basic farming practices boosted wheat production and put heaps of carbon back into the …

An Ode to Winter Socks  

an ode to socks

Winter socks matter. A lot.

It’s almost officially winter. What feels the cold sting of the season in the morning more than our delicate little toes?

We need socks. Winter socks. Slipping them on over icy feet can transform a moment.

Curled up on the couch under a blanket with a warm cup of cocoa is such a delightful winter experience. But only if your feet are toasty warm in a pair of winter socks. They’re like foot hugs from Santa or your Grandma or …

And that response feels a little right, like Bill Murray and his legion of fans are onto something special, something you either get immediately, or perhaps, sadly, …

Can an Ethical Fur Industry Ever Exist, Even with this Fur Source?


Not only is wearing fur the cruelest fashion choice on the planet, it’s not a very environmentally friendly one either. Can an ethical and environmentally responsible fur industry exist?

Pamela Paquin, founder of Petite Mort (that’s French for “the little death”) thinks so. Before you click out of this article or jump to leave a harsh comment, check out the fine print: Paquin is sourcing her fur exclusively from roadkill.

“It’s so much a part of everyday life to see these animals,” Paquin told Modern Farmer. “Who of us doesn’t look away? You …

Why is Decision-Making So Hard? (Do You Want to Know or Don’t You?)


Will you wear red or blue or maybe yellow? Should you cut your hair super short or let it grow even longer? Did you decide how you’re voting yet? Does decision-making seem like way more of a challenge than it should be? You’re not alone.

There are about ten million decisions I’ve made that I’m not so sure of. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not living a life full of regrets; it’s just that I’m not entirely sure if that menu choice I made at a restaurant last week was the very best decision. …
