In previous episodes of The Biofriendly Podcast, Noel and Jacob dug their way into the problem of soil erosion and over-farming, but what happens when food cultivation goes underwater? This week we captain our environmental ship into ocean farming waters to learn how to dance the Gracilaria and maybe, just maybe… discover the chocolate of the sea.
As we continue to fight the good fight to save our planet, Noel and Jacob stop for a minute to evaluate some environmental challenges from bee colony collapse disorder to jellyfish blackouts that might be caused by something other than climate change.

The demand for fish has also had a significant impact on ecosystems everywhere. Overfishing and fish farming have disrupted the food chain and depleted fish populations. […]

We’d rather have our oceans and sea life free of cigarettes, cans, straws, bottles and other plastic pollution. Happy fish, happy people, happy planet! That’s why this […]
Today’s Biofriendly Image of the Day goes to this colorful fish who looks like he’s pretty intent on reminding us we need to do our part to help beat plastic pollution this World Environment Day (and every other day too). We guess he and his ocean friends wouldn’t be very interested in eating, or getting […]
