Working 24/7 as purifier of the human blood, the liver is a busy organ. However, an overdose of i.e. paracetamol or eating poisonous mushrooms can cause the liver to fail. In those cases liver transplant is the only way. Scientists are working on solutions, among others researcher David Hay and his colleagues; follow link for article…/pluripotent-stem-cell-hepatocyte-…

PS; Did you know that you can donate part of your liver? The recipient gets a piece that grows inside them and your liver grows back inside you. This is mainly used with parents-child, and the parent leaves approximately 20% of their liver.

This is Benita Bünger. She is a professional ballet dancer with the Royal Danish Ballet in Copenhagen, Denmark. She is now collaborating with us to spread the RECYCLE ME movement globally. Thank you Benita, your participation means a lot to us! This incredible photo of Benita wearing the BRAVE HEART jewellery for organ donation awareness is a work of the Danish photographer Thomas Holm. Thomas is also collaborating with his profession as a photographer with RECYCLE ME.

We think this photo of Benita floating in the air in a weightless condition expresses so much hope, grace and compassion. It is like an imprint, an image of magic. That mind and body can achieve even the most impossible thoughts. Think about it. If we unite together around the cause of life with our compassion and strength, together we will make magic.

Both Benita and Thomas have participated on a non-profit base for the cause of organ donation. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You have managed to bring our united cause to the next level by your art. Sincerely thank you.

If you would like to contribute to the movement, you can do so by purchasing the RECYCLE ME jewellery by Designer Pamela Lindgren at
The profits from RECYCLE ME jewellery will go to Professor Lars-Erik Gelin Memorial Foundation for Transplant Research.

The liver is an important part of our body, functioning both as a purifier and as a manufacturer. There is currently no way to compensate for the absence of liver function in the long term, although liver dialysis techniques can be used in the short term. Liver transplantation is the only option for complete liver failure. More interesting facts about the liver on Wikipedia;

This is Fredrick Ekman posing for organ donation awareness in a RECYCLE ME t-shirt.

Fredrick Ekman is an Industrial Design Engineer (M.Sc.) who is currently working in different automotive related projects at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Thank you Fredrick for helping promoting organ donation awareness with RECYCLE ME LIFE!

This is a non-profit movement driven by people in their free time.
RECYCLE ME movement wants to raise awareness for Organ Donation. The need for Organ Donors is great and in some cases organs are sold on the black market from living donors who risk their lives in the operations for small money, or by organ harvesting. By spreading the word and signing up for organ donation you can help shortening the waiting list for organs that exist today.

Remember- organ donation concerns us all.

On this excellent webpage “IRODaT” The International Registry of Organ Donation and Transplantation, you find a database that provides information by country of donation and transplantation activity. Click on the countries you are interested in

On this webpage you find Doctors against forced organ harvesting (DAFOH) a medical community and society with objective findings of unethical and illegal organ harvesting.
