For the Animals

image005.jpg“But don’t ‘humane’ and ‘free-range’ products mean the animals live decent lives?” Cows, chickens, pigs, and other animals raised for food suffer abuse, neglect, overcrowded and filthy living conditions in our industrial farm system. At the end of the day, these animals end up in slaughterhouses with their lives shortened to a fraction of their natural lifespan. Food animals are managed as products, not as as living, sentient beings. Learn about the realities of these animals’ lives at veganuary.com

For the Planet

For the planetAnimal agriculture is one of the leading contributors to our planet’s destruction with devastating effects on climate, depletion of water resources, deforestation, and wildlife. The world’s cattle alone consume a quantity of food equal to the caloric needs of 8.7 billion people — more than the entire human population on Earth. Find out the facts at cowspiracy.com
