    #16 @Aurorasa Sima - just lost the bet! V. pissed off, I deliberately chose SA products that were not tested on animals and stupidly assumed that they would not be killing animals and destroying forests in the production phase. Will have to do a search to find products that are ethical and organic.

    #9 I need to pay more attention, just when I think I'm paying attention to all icky ingredients, something new comes my way. I'm not sure what has palm oil in it that I may be purchasing?

    Great idea for an app- App with ingredients on labels to stay away from. It would be beneficial to carry that around on one's smartphone.

    We simply have to start cherishing our whole planet and every single lifeform right now. There will always be some level of give and take and predators and prey; but no natural lifeform stands a chance - us included - if we don't severely curtail the industrialization of the world immediately. Our machines are more advanced than our understanding of the havoc they ensure.

    A nice cuddly reason, @Paul Walters, to really start speaking up about non-sustainable industrial practices.

    @Paul Walters thanks for the reminder about how terrible palm oil is and the devastating effect the producers are having on the environment. I have cut out creamers that contain Palm Oil - but from now on will check the labeling on packaging a lot more carefully.

    The recurring haze, almost an annual event since the late 90's, is a travesty. I remember moving to Singapore in 98 when the haze was the worst it had ever been. All passengers on that flight from Japan disembarked with facemasks. Back then we only thought about our own health risks and not about the loss of habitat for numerous endangered species. If anyone has a few spare weeks and are looking for an adventure, you can volunteer for 2 to 12 week stints at an Orangutan sanctuary here:

    As much as I enjoy being able to see a variety of animals in zoo's, I also get very sad knowing they were taken from their natural habitats. I didn't know about human diseases and they can contract them. Wow, the fires... insane and to have to wear a mask for that long, actually scary. Orangutangs are really cute. They can play video games? I'd say, they are highly intelligent! Thanks for tagging me Paul!! Always enjoy your pieces.
