Ikea’s cheap, cheery Malm dressers are a mainstay of college dorm rooms and small apartment bedrooms around the country. But these dressers also have a dark side: they easily tip over, a design flaw which has led to the death of three toddlers in less than two years. Now, in an unprecedented move, Ikea is recalling the Malm line of dressers, as well as other models of dressers that tip over too easily, going back a decade. Some 29 million dressers are eligible, and while Ikea has yet to announce full details of the program, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that customers will be offered full refunds, while customers who want to keep their products will have repair crews sent to their house. The recall follows the death of Ted McGee, a 22-month-old boy who in February became the third child to be crushed to death by a Malm dresser in two years. Before McGee’s death, Ikea had responded to their dressers’ stability issues by offering free wall anchoring kits, but did … [Read more...] about Ikea Will Recall 29 Million Dressers For Fatal Design Flaw

It is suffocatingly dusty, a grey-brown haze looming over the city. People are wearing masks, wheezing or even coughing heavily as though the alveoli in the lungs can’t tell air from dust anymore.The visibility is bleak – 200 metres, I'd say – and people are struggling to keep their eyes open with the particulate matter settling on the eyelashes. Some have eyes which are blood-shot red with irritation.In the midst of this hideous desert-like city of mask-donning, sick-looking people and top-less buildings, my nose surprisingly detects the fragrance of lavender. The stimulus turns my body and I start walking towards the source, astonished that my body still responds to stimulus. I am half-convinced that it’s a mirage –like a thirsty traveller in a desert gets the illusion of a water body.Close Making conscious use of the limited oxygen in my body, I seem to have reached the source. A 15 ft X 5 ft vestibule is selling “pure oxygen”! … [Read more...] about Ground Report | Delhi Pollution: As citizens gasp for breath, oxygen bar offers ‘clean air’ for 15 minutes at Rs 299!
Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya is standing in his company’s industrial-chic test kitchen in lower Manhattan, gleefully doing shots. He’s not drinking alcohol, but something that is, at least for him, another kind of controlled substance: milk. advertisement advertisement Yes, the Greek yogurt titan—the man who once milked cows for a living and famously bootstrapped what became a $1.5-billion-in-annual-revenue company by getting America hooked on the creamy, tart, and protein-rich yogurt of his Turkish youth—is sensitive to dairy. Around the time his trademark mop of curly hair began turning salt-and-pepper, Ulukaya realized that he was lactose intolerant and stopped drinking milk. (Yogurt, because of the fermentation process, is easier to digest.) Then, about a year ago, he began stealthily developing his own plant-based alternative. “Awesome, no?” he says, grabbing an unmarked cardboard carton and pouring himself another small glass of … [Read more...] about Exclusive: Chobani’s empire was built on Greek yogurt.

Gradually, awareness about the harm we have inflicted on the planet has been growing. But while a few take action, most people do nothing. Why? Because they feel hopeless and helpless. “What can I do about it?” they say to themselves. So they do nothing and sink into apathy. The most important message I have for these people is to help them understand that every single day, each of us makes some impact on the planet—and we can choose what sort of impact we make. It is the cumulative effect of millions—or billions—of ethical choices regarding what we buy (especially concerning our diet) that will move us toward a better world. Of course, some people—decision makers in government, CEOs of big corporations, and so on—can make individual choices that will have a huge impact. advertisement advertisement I am motivated to carry on [with this work] because I care passionately about the natural world, animals, future generations.
