INTERNATIONAL ORGAN DONATION AWARENESS


This week is the International organ donation awarness week.


"The donation rate in Sweden has been among the lowest in Europe for a number of years. Thus, the Swedish government realised the need for a national agency, with an overall responsibility for donation. Sweden had 14,2 donors per million people in 2005 and 15,1 p.m.p. in 2006. Thus, Sweden moves in the right direction, but there is room for continuous improvement, especially keeping in mind that Sweden has over 600 patients waiting to be transplanted."

Some information about the t-shirt material that Recycle Me use, bamboo and organic cotton.

Antibacterial Qualities of Bamboo ExplainedBamboo is a very special kind of plant, not only because it's the strongest and fastest growing plant on earth but also because of the exceptional natural antibacterial qualities of bamboo.It's these antibacterial qualities that have helped bamboo become so incredibly successful in the wild.

Because it's developed an amazing barrier against bacteria, almost all types of bacterial pests that try to grow on the plant are killed on contact. What's really astounding, though, is the fact that this particular quality isn't destroyed during the process of turning bamboo culms into fabrics. In fact, a study by the CTITC (China Textile Industry Testing Centre) showed that after introducing bacteria to a sample of bamboo fabric a 99.8 reduction in bacteria occurred over a 24-hour period. Another study by The Japan Textile Inspection Association showed that bamboo fabric could eliminate over 70 of introduced bacteria over a 24-hour period even after 50 industrial wash cycles.

Bamboo fibre made into socks can stop foot odour and prevent athletes' foot. Operating masks and gowns have been produced to help prevent cross infection in sterile environments. Bamboo fabric will also resist yeast, mould and fungus cultivation.
No other fabric has this quality so where your cotton shirts will eventually show signs of yellowing in the pits (and no matter how much deodorant we use, we all sweat!), the antibacterial matter will kill the bacteria in sweat thus ensuring that your shirts retain a clean, fresh appearance. The natural antibacterial qualities of bamboo will also help naturally eliminate odours.

Soon coming up! A day to be grateful! Make your wishes known!

Since 1998, the Council of Europe organises a European Day for Organ Donation and Transplantation to promote organ donation and transplantation in its member states. It is hosted every year by a different member state with the aim of encouraging debate on this question. In 2010 the event will take place in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Kidneys, liver, heart, lungs ... while medicine is progressing by leaps, 56,000 people in Europe are on waiting lists for a transplant. Every day 12 of them die because of the lack of available organs.

Organ donation takes healthy organs and tissues from one person for transplantation into another. Experts say that the organs from one donor can save or help as many as 50 people. Organs you can donate include
Internal organs: Kidneys, heart, liver, pancreas, intestines, lungs
Skin
Bone and bone marrow
Cornea

Most organ and tissue donations occur after the donor has died. But some organs and tissues can be donated while the donor is alive.
People of all ages and background can be organ donors. If you are under age 18, your parent or guardian must give you permission to become a donor. If you are 18 or older you can show you want to be a donor by signing a donor card. You should also let your family know your wishes.

Support the Recycle Me project at

Photo Anna Hallberg
Recycle me is a proposal to benefit human organ donation. The idea of the proposal is to design and produce t-shirt prints and jewellery in the shape of human organs. By wearing a t-shirt or jewellery people will make a pro-donation statement.The lack of human organs today is costing the lives of many people in need of new organs. It is also taking many people’s lives through the illegal market based on organ robbery. The situation is unacceptable and must be changed.

The profits from the Recycle me project will go to Professor Lars-Erik Gelin Memorial Foundation for Transplant Research.

The cool TRENDHUNTER published on the front page today!


"No, the ‘Recycle Me Collection’ isn’t a clothing line for the new movie Repo Men (though that does look like a cool film concept). This is a line of t-shirts that help raise awareness about organ donation. This is a subject that seems far too often glazed over, yet holds vital importance to the health of our society.
The ‘Recycle Me’ Collection, which was started by Pamela Lindgren, is a non-profit organization, with all the proceeds from the clothes going to Professor Lars-ErikGelin Memorial Foundation for Transplant Research.
As well as being a charitable tool, these shirts also act as a point of education to enlighten people on the issue of organ shortage at hospitals and clinics. As there is are far too few donor applicants, these shirts hope to inspire people to donate if they can." Shelby Walsh Editor and Screenwriter
