Activism & Charity

We love that we can use this platform of our cruelty-free family lifestyle blog to help highlight many issues that are near to our heart. One of the best things everyone can do right now to save 1000s of lives in their lifetimes is to go vegan. We put everything out there in the blogosphere and on social media to share how easy it is to have a kind lifestyle which benefits the planet, our health, and of course animals.

Ask the UN to include Animal Rights in it's periodic review.

How is Animal Agriculture Responsible for Climate Change?

It is not just cow-farts, people.
In  1960 we killed 1.8 billion animals for food in the US.
In the 2015 we slaughtered 9.2 billion animals. 

Since the start of THIS century we have been averaging around 9 billion animals killed each year for food. That means if you were born a millennial, you were born into a time where things had already spun out of control with the animal agriculture industry.

That is a MASSIVE jump from 1.8 billion animals to 9 billion.

The Humane Society has a document they keep updated with the latest numbers.

Those animals killed for food are not the only ones being kept against their will. Billions of cows and pigs are repeatedly impregnated in order to reproduce or for lactation (cow's milk) although that is their only purpose in their short lives before they too become meat.

How is the planet keeping up with all these farmed animals? It's NOT. It is eating the planet alive!

1. Tons of soy and grains are all grown to feed animals, much of it in deforested areas

TONS and TONS of food that we could easily create delicious plant based food to feed the entire world ten times over, goes to raise these animals instead.

2. Our water is polluted by feces, run-off, and used in massive amounts to keep these animals watered in increasingly arid environments.

3. Our air is polluted by methane from these billions upon billions of live animals and their farts and fecal matter.

4. More deforestation throughout the Amazon and all over the entire world is caused by soy farms and animal grazing. 

The forests small fraction of the forests we have left have lost the ability to clean the air.
