This Woman Never Felt 'Good Enough' To Wear A Bikini -- Until Now

The Huffington Post | Taylor Pittman | July 12, 2016 | Women
After hitting the beach in a bikini for the first time in her life, one woman learned that every body is a bikini body.  BuzzFeed Yellow documented a woman named Jazzmyne’s journey with a video that begins with her picking out a bikini and ended with her rocking it at the beach. Before the shopping trip, she explained the motivation behind documenting the experience, describing how she struggled to love herself between her junior year of high school and junior year of college.  “I grew up just being around a lot of girls who were super thin and super blonde and super white. I idolized them and their figures more than I appreciated my own figure,” she says. “I went through a hard time of eating disorders and therapists and really getting down on myself.”  Jazzmyne stressed that she never thought she “was supposed to” wear a bikini, but is now on a body-positive mission to change her perspective.  “I really want to work on being the most confident version of myself that I can be,” she said. “I’m on a journey to love me for me and if people love it, that’s awesome and if people don’t, that’s not my problem.” With that kickass mentality, Jazzmyne picked out a black bikini designed by model Ashley Graham and hit the beach with a bit of hesitation. It wasn’t long though that she felt she was rocking her new swimsuit.   “I’m feeling good. I’m feeling a lot of confidence,” she said. Before this experience, Jazzmyne thought that she should only wear high-waisted swimsuits because of her body. Now, no swimsuit is off-limits.  Jazzmyne later posted a bikini pic on Instagram and wrote in the caption that she never felt “good enough” to wear a bikini to the beach ― until now. For the past 20 years I've told myself I am not "good enough" to wear a bikini to the beach. With help of my confidence queen, @dayshaveronica, I went out and wore this because I don't have to limit myself to just "plus-size high-waist swim suits." SO much thanks to @nyla.wissa, @kanedeep, @mcwhorterphotography, @danmagro and @emsven13 for your support💋💋 This is me, in a bikini, and I fucking love it. #effyourbeautystandards #myswimbody #ashleygrahamxswimsuitsforall #plussizefashion #buzzfeed A photo posted by Jazzmyne (@jazzmynejay) on Jun 19, 2016 at 2:35pm PDT “This is me, in a bikini, and I fucking love it,” she...

Sacramento Group Rescues 40,000 Tons Of Food Waste, Turns It Into Fuel

Eleanor Goldberg | July 12, 2016 | Impact
In Sacramento, farm-to-table is a nice start, but it doesn’t stop there. Once the food’s consumed, it’s then turned into fuel. Created through a public-private partnership with the University of California, Davis and the Energy Commission, the Sacramento Biodigester is keeping leftovers out of landfills and converting them into fuel that can power school buses, waste disposal trucks and fleet vehicles, according to the California Energy Commission.  Altogether, it diverts 40,000 tons of food waste from landfills, according to Energy Vision. It’s a pretty sizable operation considering that organic waste makes up about 30 percent of what’s dumped into landfills, according to CleanWorld, one of two companies that helped open the Biodigester.  “Farm to Fork to Fuel to Farm is an effort to turn what would otherwise be a waste stream – which is food waste – into a regional resource,” Tim Taylor, of the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District, told Yale Climate Connections.  Take Action Now Join thousands of Americans calling on Congress to pass Rep. Pingree's Food Recovery Act. Sign the petition at Change.org When left to disintegrate in landfills, food waste breaks down and releases methane, a powerful heat-trapping gas.  Atlas Disposal Industries was also involved in opening the Biodigester and its fleet is powered by the waste that it hauls, according to Energy Vision.  The company collects organic waste from restaurants, supermarkets, food processing companies and households and brings it to Sacramento’s South Area Transfer Station where it’s converted. The waste undergoes a process called Anaerobic Digestion. The machine consumes the organic waste and produces biogas, which is a mixture of mostly methane and carbon dioxide. The biogas is then refined and turned into renewable natural gas. In addition to rescuing the food waste from landfills, it also cuts greenhouse gas emissions by 5,800 tons per year.  Within nine years, the county plans to divert all food waste from large...
