“Apple is the most aggressive in powering its data center operations with renewable energy, and continues to lead the way toward a green internet. … The report also highlights the ‘continued lack of transparency’ by ‘cloud’ giant Amazon.” (http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_round_up/2866566/coalheavy_utilities_stand_in_the_way_of_a_green_internet.html)

Apples are often green. Clouds generally lack transparency.

“More than a quarter of spending on organic products (27.9%) is in the diary aisles, with yoghurt sales increasing by 13.8% and milk by 2.9% – in stark contrast to the 3% contraction of the non-organic dairy market.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/feb/24/organic-uk-food-sales-defy-market-downturn-to-rise-4-percent-2014)

If your non-organic dairy’s contracting, that’s hard cheese.

Pumpkin is food

“An estimated 10million pumpkins are grown in the UK every year – 95% will be carved into hollowed-out lanterns for Halloween and 5% will be used for soups, stews and pies.” (The Guardian)

The Food Standards Agency suggests “the recession has had a long-lasting impact on the nation’s eating habits, making us less likely to throw away leftovers, or “avoidable” food waste.” (The Guardian)

Research continues into the Halloceenogenic property of inhaling pumpkin vapour that leads to ethical self-delusion.

“The Les fruits et légumes moches (inglorious fruit and vegetables) initiative offers misshapen fruit and vegetables at a 30% discount … with slogans including ‘hideous orange makes beautiful juice’.” (http://positivenews.org.uk/2014/environment/agriculture/16073/french-supermarket-sells-ugly-fruit-vegetables/)

Tres chicory.

Pulp

“The National Geographic Society (NGS) has begun incorporating recycled fiber in all the pages of National Geographic Magazine … National Geographic’s world-renowned photography is unparalleled—if they can continue to captivate their audience in print by using recycled content, anyone can.” (http://www.nrdc.org/media/2014/140717.asp)

Recycled content is where publications go astray.

“The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann) is due to decide in days whether to grant control of .eco to [a] coalition.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jun/26/battle-dot-eco-domain-name-internet-green-groups)

Get ready for… artd.eco? pros.eco? I probably won’t bother with mical.eco.

“Other bids, by taxi drivers and tennis associations, had failed because of the scoring system.”

Perhaps trying to get one over .net was too ambitious.
