Our planet is in serious trouble. In the past 40 years alone, we’ve lost over half of the world’s wildlife; there are more than 400 massive dead zones in the oceans, completely devoid of life due to our pollution; and there is currently more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than there has ever been in human history.
So what’s driving this damage? Well, mostly – it’s our food choices. Primarily, our obsession with meat, dairy, and eggs. Chickens, cows, pigs and other farmed animals are made slaves to satisfy a broken food system that is destroying the planet, instead of being able to live out their lives like everyone should. The lie that a farmed animal is different from a pet and does not deserve love but a life of confinement and suffering is a lie indeed and the fact that it is believed by the majority doesn’t change that fact. These beings that man has decided to exploit and treat as commodities deserve love and we need to demand change for their sake and for the fate of the planet.
