11  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Edited: Delicious soy burgers! tutorial with Big Images on: March 15, 2011 10:56:23 AM
Do you know that more than half of the water that is consumed in the world is used in cattle farming?

To produce one kilo of meat it is necessary to use more than 20.000 liters of water.
To produce in kilo of wheat it is use only 227 liters and for a kilo of rice 454 liters.

The cattle used in the meat industry around the world consume the amount of food equivalent to the caloric needs of 8.700 MILLIONS of people. That means more than the human population.

Every second the meat industry release in the rivers 125 tons of toxic waste in the rivers. Those toxic such as methane, ammonia, and carbon dioxide increase the contamination in our environment.

We encourage you to search information about what you eat. The nutrition and the manipulation of food is becoming a worldwide problem.

Soy is a very healthy alternative to red meat. It id rich in protein and easy to use in different recipes.

Thanks for watching and I hope your soy burgers taste delicious!

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mandala egg carton box recycled earrings on: March 09, 2011 07:59:51 AM
How many tons of carton are needed to pack eggs for all the consumers around the world?

Are you recycling those boxes in some way? (using them to plant veggies, to store earrings, etc, etc)

These mandala earrings are made from an egg cartoon box. Painted with spectacular colors the mandala is of our own design.

This is a nice idea to help the planet and create crafts from materials that usually we discard.
Hoping you like them Smiley

15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Eco Terrarium made in felt with upcycled glass jar - Curious bunnies on: February 23, 2011 02:38:14 PM
Hi everybody
Some days ago I realized how many glass jars I had at home. I wanted to do something nice with them but I realized that after doing candle holders, jar to put my materials, to save spices etc etc, I still had at least 5. So I decided to make some lovely eco terrariums.

Why eco terrariums?
Because they do not need any living natural material from the forest (fresh moss and lichen extraction cause bad damage in some ecosystems).
Because It is better to give a new chance to things you probably throw away daily.
Because they look colorful and nice Cheesy

The materials I used was felt in different colors, thread, and wool to make the grass and the hair of the girl that lays in the grass.
I did not use any glue.

Ok I hope you like it.

16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My very first wallet made in felt on: February 12, 2011 03:36:19 PM
This is the first time I make a wallet. Also is the first time that I make something with felt.
Was not so complicated and I think is a good option to avoid the slaughter of innocent animals to make leather purses and  wallets.
Hope you like it.

Seashells are hard to find on the shores of the Baltic ocean. And when you find some are small, tiny, cute ones.
