Friends Furever: “Be Together, Not the Same.”

I write about the bad things a lot; they play on my mind as horrible distractions and abject imaginings. Writing about them is cathartic for me, allowing me to let them go somewhat, to not be so emotionally invested and over-whelmed.

With all the strife, war, and poverty, it’s easy to fall into despair.

Sometimes, though, it’s important to step back and remember how wonderful and beautiful the world is.

I hope this, at least, makes you smile once today…

Save the Planet While Feeding Strays

Who says recycling doesn’t pay/is a scam/ doesn’t benefit anyone?

Well, no one can doubt it now, with Turkish organisation Pugedon’s new vending machines in Istanbul feeding stray dogs in exchange for recycling plastic bottles.

Huffpost states:

The Pugedon Smart Recycling Boxes operate at no charge to the city, and the recycled bottles cover the cost of the food.

The video, linked below, depicts the machine and its humanitarian ventures in heart-rendering scenes, and, with the escalation of economical stress in cities and the continued abandonment of animals in these highly populated areas, we can only hope to see more of them pop-up in further cities.
