Fireworks are also bad for other animals, including human, as well as the environment. Noise pollution, heavy metals pollution (extracted by earth mining), lots of package trash, negative health impact, are some side effects of the 12 minutes of 'wow' and colors in the sky. Just search online 'fireworks pollution' or 'fireworks toxic' and you will find plenty to read.

Same here. Since i almost eat pasta, veggies and legumes from local small markets and farmers, no. If you are into expensive packaged vegan products, then yes since they are imported niche goods and they charge high to make profit (exception of the later are some vegan cheese). Even for the bigger portions that i need as a vegan (to make up for calories and fat lost in regards to my previous diet), veganism here is still less expensive that eating the smaller portions of meat and dairy.

apart from suggested wikibooks, for easy video lectures you can go to khanacademy.org they have some recorded videos on various topics of math you can start with basics if logged in with an account it will track your progress and keep bookmarks on where you left, if you find this helpful then use an account but it's really not needed (!!...)

[disclaimer about the site: it's an non profit, apart from that i have no real clue. i only know they've worked with pixar (disney) for some learning through games for kids, and that the founder is a person that likes to inspire others to learn (with ted telks etc). Also, their videos are streamed from youtube (!) so if you want to watch remotely i can suggest using hooktube, however there is always the option of downloading the vids (even from their website) and watch offline.]

So much CO2 in the atmosphere where it shouldn't be. Maybe it's time for these big corps to start funding some serious research for a sustainable and eco solution for the recycling of CO2 emissions to use for their needs. Since the food industry is one of the major CO2 emitters it would only be fair to go the extra mile.

hello. apart from being vegan i am also trying to live a garbage-free life in order to avoid big corp foods and polluting the planet even more, so i usually go shopping with my own bags and containers at small local places that sell unpackaged ingredients/foods. I avoid buying packaged if i have an alternative. and i usually tend to 'play' with recipes, so if i cannot find a specific (or expensive) ingredient i try to replace it with something else/similar that i like. I usually have my shopping list on a note app on my phone and use the same list, check things i have and uncheck when things are needed or add new ingredients now and then. I usually go grocery shopping every three or four days, because i like to have fresh stuff in the fridge (since i don't buy packaged), but it depends on the ingredient. e.g. onions i buy 5-6 once or twice per week, whereas tomatoes for tomato pulp or salads 5-6 every three days; rice 0.5kg once per week; legumes various in bigger quantities twice per month, bread daily, etc...
