  6. I am already in the process of working on a project that is near and dear to my heart. I am making hanging fountains that you hang on a fence or wall. They are mosaic in nature and I am using recycled ceramic and porcelain plates I find at thrift stores and garage sales. I would like for them to provide water to hungry tired bees and also for birds during the summer months. Some of the money that I make from selling these fountains would go towards a group that takes kids with autism out and teaches them how to skate board.

  12. Vegan “Saausage” Our Sustainable/Allergy-Free Vegan Product

    My sister, Trish and I have been working on a vegan sausage that is cruelty-free, soy-free, gluten-free and sustainable. It is made from crops that are grown here in Colorado including carrots, beets (for a meat color), onions, oats, okra, flax and sunflower seeds. Our sausage is different than many other vegan/vegetarian versions in that it we have been able to create a “skin” for the sausage which makes it unique in the industry. We do not rely on plastic packaging to hold its shape.

    We will be introducing the sausage at this year’s VegFest at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Colorado. Our packaging is made from 100% recycled material.

    We have gotten a great response from even meat-eaters. We need approximately $5000 for a sausage extruder to make the process feasible.

    1. As a diabetic you should know that it IS NOT carbs or sugar that causes diabetes or spikes blood sugar level. It is ONLY fat and saturated fats and/or being fat that causes diabetes or spikes blood sugar levels. Please Google “Meat & Diabetes” you will find tons of research from the most credible and highly regarded scientific journals (e.g. Oxford and Harvard) that prove this. Whoever thinks that carbs and sugars causes diabetes are being misinformed and do not know what they are talking about. Low-carb diets are dangerous. You can also look up tons of information on Dr. McDougall’s website and Walter Kempner, MD – Founder of the Rice Diet, where he did a study done on a sugar and white rice diet given to obese diabetics. These diabetics’ high blood sugar levels went down on this diet and shows that carbs and sugars do not spike blood sugar levels.

    2. That’s interesting Sleake because doctors and nutritionists have told me the opposite of what you just said. There are plenty of independent studies ALSO from Harvard specifically as well as many scientists, researchers, and biochemists that have seen dramatic positive results from ketogenic (low carb/high fat) diets. Including improvement of seizure disorders, improvement of blood pressure, bettered cholesterol, improvements in individuals with parkinsons, fertility issues, pcos, cancer, and yes, diabetes. It’s a diet being widely used to treat these conditions and has shown to be an excellent method of weight loss. Insulin is directly related to glucose storage. We can only store 2 tsp of sugar. Any more than that and those insulin spikes from our over consumption of sugar and carbohydrates pushes all that glucose into fat cells to attempt to clear it from your blood stream. Keto adapted individuals burn fat for energy instead of glucose and it’s shown better cognitive functions and great energy that doesn’t dip throughout the day like it does in a typical American “diet”. This isn’t to say no carbs, just low.

We’d love to gift our favorite natural foods co-op with a children’s Little Free Library stocked with books about kindness, animals, and even some plant-based cookbooks and recipe cards. With this grant, our almost four year old vegkin could give something back to his community, while spreading his love of animals. We could even host a ribbon-cutting ceremony complete with SoDelicious treats for all of the kids. Yay!

    1. Valley Natural Foods has become our second home. The people there supported me through my pregnancy with knowledge and kindness. They’ve befriended our son and care about him like their own.

    1. My dear friend works there and has also adopted rescued hens of her own. These hens, particularly Fifi and Almond, are our son’s friends, (just as much as his grandparents’ dog), and they are the reason he is already, at under 4yrs old, firm in his decision to never eat animals. Once you meet them, you can’t eat them, right? May his heart always stay so tender.

  82. #WorldsShortestGrant I would use the grant to build an environmentaly sustainable park. I would also ensure it was all access ( handicap accessible).This Nature themed park would be located at the Native American Cultural Center for my tribe. We only have 1 park in my town and it is not accessible for all children. Incorporating sustainability would benefit the land and people. Play is the most important work !

  83. Oahu’s 1st farmed animal sanctuary! Rescued animals need homes, & humans can visit, bond, & go plantbased @So_Delicious #WorldsShortestGrant

  84. Today, one third of our greenhouse gas emissions come from agriculture. The current environmental impact of food production must be improved as we seek to support the growing world’s population—a population expected to reach 9.6 billion people by 2050. My team’s research is focused on comparing the environmental impacts of alternative pasteurizing processes that are becoming available to the market- while some may still only be available on the pilot scale; we need to know which technologies should be further developed. Our study will use computer modeling software to simulate data for a gate-to-gate life cycle assessment (LCA) of pasteurizing foods with alternative technology like high pressure processing. Our goal is to give an important decision support tool for authorities and food industry leaders to compare alternative processes to decrease their environmental impact. We ask for your support today.

  113. There’s a lot of misrepresentation in the government when it comes to environmental decisions. Many governmental meetings occur during the work day or behind closed doors. An app that would allow citizens to be more engaged in what they’re government is planning or doing and add their inputs in to the app for that particular government to notice would definitely create a change in local communities.

  129. I would like to teach kids how to grow vegetables.I have been doing this for about ten years at a horse rescue but with your consideration I can do it on a much bigger level. If kids learn to do this they can eat better, some might even want to farm. Do you know the average age of a U.S. farmer is 57? What will happen when they’re gone if no one teaches them? There isn’t a app for that and they say in 30 years the USA will need 3 times the amount of food, this is going to be a problem since NAFTA the amount of food coming in to the USA without regulated chemicals has sent the cancer % out of control. I’m asking for ten thousand to teach kids to take care of themselves.

  138. I want to purchase 7 acres in rural Vermont and open a farm animal sanctuary. We will raise funds to buy animals who would normally be raised for dairy or slaughter, and instead give them a home where they can live out their natural lives with love and abundance. We will increase awareness of animal welfare, inform the public of ways to adopt a vegan lifestyle, and provide environmental education resources. @So_Delicious #worldsshortestgrant
