Of these donations, I will be forwarding a third of all proceeds to causes & organizations that reflect the values & esteem of StayBlooming.com. Not only does this patronage support the fruitfulness and potential of this blog but it also supports my work as the sole editor. Thank you so much for following and reading!

Trump’s Broken Campaign Promises

In light of recent events involving our 45th president acting out in completely unpresidential ways… I wanted to share this. It’s a list of pledges he made and promised to implement 100 days into his presidency. Bullsh*t. It’s quite brutal to see how he’s acted completely opposite towards all of these supposed promises. Do what you will with it but I do suggest sharing. Stay aware bloomers.

Veganized Domino’s Pizza

Yes, you read right! I veganized a Domino’s pizza pie today. I was inspired to order it because I had a free medium pie offer from the pizza franchise. As apart of their rewards program for several previous orders, I got to customize a 12-inch medium pizza for free and only paid delivery fees. I did some research and found this article Veganize Pizza Delivery from PETA2. Following their direction I got a thin crust pie with no cheese, regular robust tomato sauce, mushrooms, banana peppers (personal fave!), and spinach. This was the outcome:

The pizza was decent. I found that there’s 2 things to consider when veganizing a Domino’s pie. First thing is that you should definitely add extra of each vegetable topping you pick. It will be 10x more satisfying and filling with more toppings. The thin crust is exactly that and felt as thin as a tortilla to me. The second thing is totally consider carrying it out in person or the distance they’ll have to deliver it to you. Light sauce can mean for a dry pizza. 😭 Overall, I’m glad that I found a doable fast food option!

#ClearTheShelters on 8.19.17

It’s that time of year again!

This is the 3rd annual Clear The Shelters event where participating animal shelters will waive adoption fees in an attempt to literally clear the shelters. This has been a successful incentive in getting families out adopting since it doesn’t come with a high initial price tag. When pets come from facilities like these, they are more likely to be prepared for a home. They usually have up-to-date vaccinations and are spayed or neutered. Not only that but animal shelters have plenty of resources to help with new pets and information that’s more local to you. Petco now offers a Free New Pet Parent Starter Guide that has a bunch of coupons for supplies you may wanna check out.

Seabin Project “Vacuum” Cleans the Ocean

Happy World Oceans Day! With less than 2 weeks til we enter the summer season it’s crunch time to spread awareness about the ocean and its livelihood. Earlier this week I mentioned the polluted state of the deepest part of the ocean and also introduced one woman who’s inviting people to help their local communities. Today, however, I wanted to share a commercial way to help clean any coastline called the Seabin Project.

This revolutionary floating bin (shown below) acts as a vacuum for the ocean by sucking in the surface of seawater using a pump. The litter/pollution is kept and the seawater is returned back into the ocean via its mesh innards. Sounds simple right? Thanks to the Seabin Project, it really is that simple. People often think answers to environmental issues have to be as complicated as the problems they cause but that’s not entirely true.

The only down sides are that the Seabin requires daily maintenance and can only be placed in close quarters to docks, marinas, and typically calm waters. The good news in that is that floating trash makes its way everywhere along coastlines. With ever-changing technology, we can expect to see bigger and better coming out of this idea.

Summer 2017 will be the first season they are for sale. Please click here to visit their page, learn specific details about the Seabin, and the entire project.
