Two days ago I wrote about a study examining the relative costs and benefits of organic and industrial agriculture. Today we will revisit that issue and look at some responsible business practices, activism and Warren Buffet.

1. “Time to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love Industrial Agriculture?

Industrial or organic? That is the question. Tom Philpott breaks down the study that was published in Nature, a prominent scientific journal. For you science lovers, you can check out the study here.

2. “Extended producer responsibility gains traction in the US

What the heck is extended producer responsibility? Good question. Basically, it has to deal with companies taking responsibility for the waste they create. See what companies like Coca-Cola, Starbucks and Stonyfield are doing in this article.

3. “You shall not pass: Activists to block Warren Buffett’s coal trains

Cinco de Mayo isn’t the only thing happening this Saturday. Activists are also uniting around the country for Connect-the-Dots day.
