Thousands of piglets whose legs became trapped between floor slats were simply abandoned to die of starvation or dehydration. Weanling piglets that got too close to heat lamps were left to burn to death. ‘We call them ‘baby back ribs’ and ‘crispy critters.’ ’ the workers told us.’Gail Eisnitz Slaughterhouse: The Shocking Story of Greed, Neglect, and Inhumane Treatment Inside the U.S. Meat Industry

Can you imagine being the mother pig, trapped inside a gestration crate and unable to help as she watches her babies die in front of her? :(

This breaks my heart :(

I can’t breathe The poor little babies oh god They’re so tiny :’(

Is the reason why the mom is separate so that she doesn’t squash her babies? or is that just what they tell you the reason is..? Either way this is terrible and I really hope to see a day where it ends.

Fuck the people, we people, who destroy people.

Biodegradable cigarette filters with flower seeds. Save the Planet, Kill Yourself.

^ this comment at the end is powerful and accurate

Coolest thing ever

Obligatory reminder that the flower seeds are probably not native to most places where they’re being distributed, and so by flicking these on the ground you may be spreading invasive species. Also, if you don’t make sure the butt it burned out when you drop it, there’s also fire hazard.
In other words, just throw your damned butts away instead of promoting lazy, irresponsible habits.

If only this was mandatory. It make so much sense.

The Butterfly of the Sea

This is fish is called the Sea Robin, otherwise known as a Gurnard or The Butterfly of the Sea. This interesting fish is a bottom dweller. They have several sets of specialized fins, including some that allow the fish to swim and others that let it perch on the seafloor. It’s not related to flying fish, nor do they glide in air. The Sea Robin’s large pectoral fins are normally held against the body, but are spread out when threatened to put off predators.

That’s cool.

Cella (2012) by Ecoid 

This project has been launched at Kickstarter

Material: UV Protected Clear Plastic (PVC)

Cella was developed from a green roof research project called “Mosspebble” at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. Because moss gathers all of its nutrients from the air, it doesn’t need soil. However, it requires certain levels of wind, shade and moisture. Instead, we observed that moss seems to thrive on rocks and pebbles – their porous surfaces are perfect for growth. This inspired Cella’s unique design. After four years of careful observation and modification, we’ve perfected it to the lightweight, contemporary model you see now.

Cella’s unique ability to create the optimal microclimate for moss and plug plants make it adaptable to all kinds of environments. The small, organic form of the units make efficient use of space to fit a garden in an urban home or apartment, and can be installed on any surface. There are no limits to your landscaping visions – grow a traditional garden on the floor, or have it climb up the walls and hang from the ceiling.
