I have been trying to cut back on the things I buy. I have been trying to avoid disposable and single use items in the interest of reducing my carbon footprint. This includes buying very little, reusing and recycling and buying secondhand. So there came an inevitable moment when I had to address the millions of disposable sanitary products that are purchased and discarded every month by half of the population.

As millions of people are displaced by two of the biggest hurricanes seen in recent years, are the very good reasons ever going to be good enough.
After all, if we loved our animals more maybe we would own them less.
Are zoos useful centres of research and conservation, or are they a cruel business centred around the commodification of animals. Or is it a bit of both.
