Blog post #48
It’s Friday — the end of the week — time for fun, relaxation and decompressing.
Before we head into the weekend, I’d like to share three things I found and loved on the internet this week.
The Documentary That Changed My Mind
The Champions is a documentary about the pit bull terriers that were rescued from Michael Vick’s vicious dog fighting ring. This uplifting film touched my heart as it related the story of the 22 dogs that were under threat of euthanization and the efforts that were made to save the lives of these misunderstood animals. Pit bulls, especially, are more likely to be euthanized in animal shelters and are one of the most feared dog breeds. This movie changed my perception of these dogs, made me believe in the power of people, and made me feel like signing up to foster rescue animals, especially dogs.
Watch the trailer for The Champions. The entire documentary is available on Netflix. A must see.
The Pinterest Find That Got Me Drooling
If you know me, but at all, you know that I LOVE chocolate! So you will understand my uncontrollable drooling when I found this recipe for Oatmeal Fudge Bars by Chocolate Covered Katie. They are vegan, flourless and chocolately — I am definitely going to make these this weekend. Mmmm…I can taste them already!
The Invention that Gives Me Hope
There is a small brewery in Florida that has come up with an amazing solution to the problem of plastic beer can rings.
We all know the devastating effects that plastic has on marine life. With more and more plastic ending up in our oceans, more sea animals and wildlife are dying after ingesting or becoming entangled in this non-biodegradable material.
Saltwater Brewery has developed edible, compostable, 100% biodegradable beer can rings. That’s right — edible, compostable, biodegradable. The rings are made from the leavings of the wheat and malt left over from the brewing process. Imagine if the big breweries jumped on board to help with this initiative — the manufacturing cost would go down and the number of plastic beer can rings that make their way to our oceans would decrease. Come on, Molson Coors, Labatt, Heineken, Budweiser, you CAN make a difference!
