Vegetarian Ideal


Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
- Albert Einstein

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn

COMPASSION

Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live thoughtlessly and begins to devote himself to his life
with reverence in order to give it true value.
— Albert Schweitzer

And reduce pollution, preserve the environment and slow global warming.

In addition to consuming large amount of water, cattle also contribute more CO2 into the atmosphere than all forms of transportation or man-made contributors.

McDonald's tolerates animal abuse in their supply chain






The clock is ticking for McDonald’s, and the time for change is now! Over the next thirty days before their big annual shareholder meeting, 


The Humane League will be rising up to demand better for the animals from their most powerful executives.



Chickens in @McDonalds supply chain are genetically manipulated to grow too large, too fast, leading to immense pain from preventable injuries. 

Sign up for our Fast Action Network for quick, easy ways you can demand McDonald’s do better #ForTheAnimals. http://bit.ly/THLtakeaction 

 
McDonald's is trying to keep the animal abuse in their supply chain a secret, but we want consumers to know the truth (via @TheHumaneLeagueUK).





They are an international nonprofit ending the abuse of animals raised for food. #ForTheAnimals



Can't we all just get along?
















































The meat and dairy industry produce "roughly the same amount as the emissions from all the cars, trucks, airplanes and ships combined in the world today." Leaving animals off your plate is one of the easiest ways you can reduce your impact on the planet. 🌎

The world’s food system is responsible for about one-quarter of the planet-warming greenhouse gases that humans generate each year. 

That includes raising and harvesting all the plants, animals and animal products we eat — beef, chicken, fish, milk, lentils, kale, corn and more — as well as processing, packaging and shipping food to markets all over the world. If you eat food, you’re part of this system.




What the world needs more of is kindness. And better mental health.

We are all Animals. We all feel happiness, sadness, warmth, coldness, fear and safety. Be the kindness. #vegan 



Factory Farming is not what you think that it is, it is unregulated torture. I won't do that to my pets or any animal #CrueltyFree #vegan 






Meat Consumption in the U.S.








Lewis Bollard‏ @Lewis_Bollard Feb 6


No US diet trend has caused more suffering than this: Americans eat 3X more white meat than we did 50 years ago (even as we eat less red meat). The result: factory farmers confine + kill 27 chickens/year for every American alive @BBC @OurWorldInData https://www.bbc.com/news/health-47057341 …
























Climate Impact of the food we eat

The NY Times has launched an interactive resource to help readers understand the #climate impacts of their food choices, noting "plant-based foods like beans, pulses, grains and soy tend to be the most climate-friendly options of all." https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/04/30/dining/climate-change-food-eating-habits.html … #ClimateBreakdown

Whales are just some of the *many* victims of human-caused pollution


Whales are just some of the *many* victims of human-caused pollution and environmental destruction. This art installation from Greenpeace is a startling reminder of that.  We need to make kinder choices for animals and the planet.
