Make a change

Thank you, to wwfsverige for my adorable little turtle (named him Phil)
Everyone can get one by simply becoming a marine sponsor at wwf.se, and donating a certain amount each month to help these beautiful species that are on the rise to come to an end if we don’t act and start making changes.
By something so little, you can make a huge difference and contribution to our amazing planet.
Set an example for future generations, your families, and kids. They should have the honor as we have had to know what a whale is, a shark, a turtle, and all those other beings that call the ocean their home.
They should bless their sight with the beauty of these magnificent sea animals, but by the rate they’re becoming extinct, they’ll only know them by pictures. Support a cause, help make a change.

Marine Sponsor

Some seem to view the ocean, this blue endless (in size) and depth as invulnerable, and not as a home to living creatures.
More than half of the animals living under the sea are becoming threatened and endangered by the minute, and by the rate the humankind are destroying our oceans on this beautiful planet, we’ll be losing these gorgeous species.
They are decreasing, and on the rise to come to an end. Not only because the humankind treats it as a garbage can – over 4.7 billion plastic items are dumped in landfills and oceans every year worldwide, but also because each second sharks are being killed for their fins, corals are dying thanks to climate change, and thanks to uncontrolled exploitation that is damaging marine areas that are important for fishes and other animals.
By supporting a cause involved with this you’re contributing to hopefully, one day restoring not only our beautiful oceans, but stunning marine animals that are practically gone as well.
Become a marine sponsor and help make a change, become these voiceless animals voices and speak for them, fight for their rights and their home. Stop poaching, and help restore a balance.
You can also make small changes in your daily living such a recycling, buying organic, maybe going vegan, etc. All this will also help stop global warming and hopefully save our planet. I do my part at www.wwf.se by each month donating a certain amount.

Simple, yet delicious vegan rolls that literally took less than 10 minutes to make.

And vegan-friendly ham from Tofurky

Spread the cream cheese, add the ham, roll it and slice it. To make it more colorful, you can always add something green, such a baby spinach or anything your heart desires. I was starving so I just used the cream cheese and ham. :)
+ decorated them with edible flowers.

Spinach; Packed with Vitamin A, B2,B6,B9,C,E & Also loads of potassium,
calcium, magnesium & iron. It is also considered good for stomach ulcer. Spinach also contains Coenzyme Q-10, copper and other beneficial substances.

Marinated mushrooms; High level of the antioxidant ergothioneine, helps prevention of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Delivores (bought at Goodstores) Swedish Skagen mixture is life-changing. I decided to try it with oven baked potatoes, a typical Swedish dish, but you can add it on toast, or whatever your heart pleases.

Stick some holes in the potatoes/s to avoid chances of it exploding, wrap it up in foil, and shove it in the oven for around 1h, in 225 degrees. Once it’s done, fill it with the mixture, and decorate it with lemon slices and dill! ;)
