British polluter ignores closure – Social Issues – VietNam News: BINH DUONG (VNS)— British wooden furniture maker Rochdale Spears in Binh Duong Province has ignored a second order by authorities to suspend operations on Wednesday until it improves its waste treatment system.

The company, whose second unit is situated in the Dong An Industrial Park, had first been ordered to shut by November 16 and also fined VND250 million (US$12,000) for causing pollution.

Following its failure to comply, the Department of Natural Resources and Environment gave it a fresh deadline of Wednesday.

Bui Manh Lan, director of the Dong An IP Authority, told Viet Nam News yesterday that Rochdale Spears has defied orders again and continues to operate.

The company’s workers continued spraying chemicals on furniture items in an open workshop.

The area near the factory smelled of sawdust and chemicals.

Cottage Food Act, new for 2013, lets home producers sell their goods, cuts red tape | Off-Ramp | 89.3 KPCC

Share

Most states allow people to make and sell food from their homes with minimal regulation. Starting Tuesday, California joins them. Off-Ramp played a small role in getting the “Homemade Food Act” passed.

We need public health laws to regulate food. I mean, you don’t really want Grandma making pork sausage at home, smoking her Newports, with who-knows-what on the cutting board, and the cats jumping up on the counter. And you sure don’t want her to be selling it.
