Zara, the world’s largest clothing retailer, has agreed to eliminate the use and emission of certain hazardous chemicals in the making of its products by 2020. The company has committed to removing PFCs, environmental contaminants that have been linked to immunity problems in children, from its manufacturing process by 2015. Greenpeace challenged Zara to make the move after an investigation found the company to be using cancer-causing chemicals.

Dannon’s annual benchmarking survey finds that 93 percent of respondents link digestive health to overall well being although some may not know simple steps to keep their system on track. The survey also shows that 68 percent believe probiotics help regulate the digestive system, but one-third admit they don’t get enough in their daily diet. Dannon partnered with noted dietitian Keri Glassman for this year’s report.
