global briefs Man-Made Meat


Laboratory Food to Hit Pet Food Market As we race toward a future full of high- tech, lab-grown meats in place of the environmentally unsound animal protein industry, a new startup wants to extend this offering to our furry friends, too. Aiming to make the most sustainable, transparent and organic product possible, Rich Kelleman, owner of Bond Pet Foods, started growing it in a petri


dish from animal cells, free of the environmental and ethical dilemmas caused by traditional animal farming. Lab-grown meat slashes land use by 99 percent, produces 90 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions and may be a more economically viable way to feed the growing global population. “Pet food has always been quick to follow human food


trends,” says pet food industry consultant Ryan Yamka, who is working with the startup. “If you walked down the aisles this year at the trade shows, you already saw people talking about humanely raised and sustainable pet food.”


Big Save


Conservation Project Protects Part of Amazon The Amazon Region Protected Areas Program (ARPA), a joint venture between the World Wildlife Fund and the Brazilian Ministry of the Environment, has reached the goal of protecting a network of conservation units comprising more than 231,000 square miles in the Amazon River basin, or about 15 percent of the biome’s territory in Brazil. The program is now present in 117 conservation


units—including in national and state parks, ecological stations, and biological and sustainable development reserves in the states of Amapá, Amazonas, Maranhão, Mato Grosso, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima and Tocantins— that are home to more than 8,800 species. ARPA works with local communities to create,


expand, strengthen and maintain these units by ensuring resources and promoting sustainable development in the regions. They benefit from goods, projects and service contracts, such as the establishment of councils, management plans, land surveys and inspection, reaching 30 protected areas so far. ARPA is the largest strategy in place on the planet for conservation and sustainable use of tropical forests.


Loving It Fast Food Giants Finally Address


Plastic Pollution


In a win for the health of the world’s oceans, McDonald’s says it will end the use of harmful


polystyrene foam packaging globally by year’s end. Rarely recycled, the material used in beverage cups and takeout containers is a frequent component of beach litter, degrading into indigestible pellets that marine animals mistake for food, resulting in injury or death. The company says, “The environmental impact of our packaging is a top priority.” The International Agency for Research on Cancer has determined that styrene, used in the production of polystyrene, is also a possible human carcinogen. Dunkin’ Donuts is also phasing out its polystyrene


foam cups in favor of paper cups. A planned worldwide project completion by 2020 will prevent nearly 1 billion foam cups from entering the waste stream each year. Customers may still opt for the restaurant’s mugs or bring their own thermos. The foam cups will be replaced with double-walled paper cups made with paperboard certified to Sustainable Forestry Initiative standards.
