Green SLOT is a new part of SAF. It’s a new place and the beginning of a dialog on how we can join forces to fight for the good things around us that we’ve received from the Creator. Take up the challenge- look at your life and ask yourself, “What else could I change to live more in harmony with the world, environment, people and animals?” Together we want to protect and respect what is good and beautiful. May a part of that respect be learning new things and practically acting on that knowledge everyday!
