Noah -For animal rights arrange a torchlight procession against fur in Oslo and 25 other cities in Norway, on 12th of november. If you are near any of the cities, then I hope you will join us, and try help the animals in cages, so no one have to live a life which only purpos is to be killed for their skin. It makes me so sad and angry that we can cage a living animal and steal their freedom and not think twice about it.
I sincerely hope it will be the last time we need to demonstrate for this cause. I do not buy fur, I don’t need fur and all it does for me is make me think about the animal that had to die for you to wear that jacket. I will rekomend staying away for all types of fur also the fake ones.

Challenge yourself to be more eco friendly for a week, choose one thing you don’t already do and do that every day. The most impactful you can do is to stop eating meat, or eat less, so learn new recipes, or take your bike to work all week. Or choose one of the many other things you can try. Maybe you learn something new, or save money, anyway it will be good for the environment and an experience.

I love making fresh juice, but unfortunately, it ends up being a lot of residual waste. but it is possible to find use for this to. Like when your making carrot juice, you can use the residual waste in a carrot cake, or as the usual grated carrot. It is also perfect to put in pasta sauce.
* Blend pulp into a smoothie to add fiber.
* Add to a soup to thicken and boost fiber and nutrient density.
* Use fruit pulp to make frozen “popsicles” or fruit pulp ice.
* Make a veggie broth by boiling pulp with water, herbs, and spices, then straining.
* Make a “fruit tea” by boiling fruit pulp with water, adding spices such as cinnamon or ginger, cooling, and then straining.
* Use in homemade veggie burgers or fritters. Pulp adds moisture, flavor, and nutrition.
* Mix pulp into baked goods like cakes, bread, dehydrated or baked cookies, and granola bars. Celery, onion, carrot, sweet potato, spinach, apple, and berry all work beautifully.
* Use fruit or veggie pulp to add flavor, texture, and moisture to pancakes.
* Make pulp marmalade. * Mix pulp into your dog’s food or make dog treats.
If all else fails: * Feed it to your chickens, freeze it in ice cube trays to use later, or compost it.
