I really can’t stand it when you’re discussing the environmental aspects of veganism and non vegans are like ‘BUT VEGANS USE PHONES AND CARS AND PLASTIC AND CRUDE OIL AND’
And I’m like yes.
And it PAINS me.
For reals, I’m literally just trying to live like a normal person here, so if you can find me some affordable tech made from sustainably sourced materials, I WILL BUY IT.
Like if you can offer me a renewable power supply for my house and an electric car for an affordable price then god damn I will honestly explode with happiness
But for the moment, whilst my carbon footprint is roughly half of the national average, and I’m doing a shit ton more than the vast majority of people, stop waiting for me to give up everything before you will change anything. I’m doing the best I can within my means.
And this doesn’t have to be one side vs the other thing, we’re not doing this for gratification or some kind of personal gain, we’re doing it for the good of the earth and everyone in it, and for the future of our kids and yours alike.
Basically, we’re doing what we can, and the difference is that we’re doing enough, if everyone was causing the same amount of damage that vegans do, then chances are, the earth would have an actual fighting chance at pulling through this.
Please just stop fighting against us and hear us, its more important than you know
And if anyone wants help changing their ways, I’m more than happy to be of service!
Peace and good will to all of you
