Everyone was in Christmas Party mode! No time for Facts!

Today’s make-up Fun Fact is “Christmas Tree’s for Dinner”

Yes you heard correctly, Evergreen is not only edible but nutrient enriched packing a good amount of Vitamin C and a good source of roughage.

So before you throw out that tree this year jump on the internet and look up some evergreen recipes for your New Years Eve Dinner!

Fun FACT Friday!

In the United States alone, annual trash from gift-wrap and shopping bags totals 4 million tons.

Just a FACT!!! (not a FUN one)

10 Dec

 73 million sharks are killed every year to meet the increasing demand for shark fin soup, resulting in the collapse of many shark populations worldwide.

There is no one type of shark used for the Fin Soup this effects ALL shark populations. Many are finned and thrown back into the ocean to sink to the bottom and die a slow uncalled for death.

Please take a moment and make a stand for a species that can not speak for itself.
