VEGAN & Eco

Here all all of my resources and posts I've been compiling about going vegan, veganism and the environment, etc. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for the actual blog posts. With climate change being such a dire emergency I started this page to share all our green tips and have relocated all of my vegan resources to this page as well because they are one in the same. If you are looking for OUR Vegan Recipes you will find them here: Vegan Recipes

Are Animal Products Causing Climate Change?



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. - Numbers from The Humane Society

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

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) and that is their only purpose in their short lives before they too are slaughtered or left to die.

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. Much of our air pollution is coming from factory farming

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

The forests we have left are losing the ability to clean the air. Oxygen is depleted from the ocean. All of the species will die if the earth becomes a dead zone.

Animal Products are NOT healthy.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has a lot of resources on plant based diet to treat health issues https://www.pcrm.org/health/resources

It is no coincidence that the places with the longest living people also mostly have plant based diets https://www.aplaceformom.com/blog/2013-03-29-where-people-live-the-longest/


We are also trying to avoid palm oil because it is pushing Orangutans to extinction.

Here is a partial list of other names for palm oil-derived ingredients:

PKO – Palm Kernel Oil
PKO fractionations: Palm Kernel Stearin (PKs); Palm Kernel Olein (PKOo)
PHPKO – Partially hydrogenated Palm Oil
FP(K)O – Fractionated Palm Oil
OPKO – Organic Palm Kernel Oil
Palmitate – Vitamin A or Asorbyl Palmitate (NOTE: Vitamin A Palmitate is a very common ingredient in breakfast cereals and we have confirmed 100% of the samples we’ve investigated to be derived from palm oil)
Palmate
Sodium Laureth Sulphate (Can also be from coconut)
Sodium Lauryl Sulphates (can also be from ricinus oil)
Sodium dodecyl Sulphate (SDS or NaDS)
Elaeis Guineensis
Glyceryl Stearate
Stearic Acid
Chemicals which contain palm oil
Steareth -2
Steareth -20
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate
Sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (coconut and/or palm)
Hydrated palm glycerides
Sodium isostearoyl lactylaye (derived from vegetable stearic acid)
Cetyl palmitate and octyl palmitate (names with palmitate at the end are usually derived from palm oil, but as in the case of Vitamin A Palmitate, very rarely a company will use a different vegetable oil)
*Disclaimer: Through research we’ve found that Vitamin A Palmitate can be derived from any combination of vegetable oil such as olive, coconut, canola and/or palm oil. Though in all the cases we’ve documented, companies use palm oil to make derivatives like Vitamin A Palmitate, it can be tricky to know for sure.
