I like when you talk about eating death and pick on people about climate change. Makes me laugh when you guys spend all day taking photos thinking you saving animals. When you're not. You're mearly not consuming them. Eating plastic wrapped vegan food uses as much water and resources, yet isn't talked about. Maybe because it's damage you can't see and doesn't fit your agendas.
Normally I wouldn’t answer such a negative message but in this case I think for a fair few people it may look like what we do isn’t effective because you see a certain aesthetic on social media and not the actual impact. I’m going to tell you that not all vegans or movers and shakers look or live or act the way that you may associate with being influential. For starters you don’t know any of us personally. I have seen first hand the amount of lives that Bonny has changed. She cannot go out in public without being recognized. 99% of the people that stop her on the street tell her how much she has changed their lives and made them go vegan. Not to mention the hundreds of messages she gets a day. I don’t even have a fraction of the following Bonny has, yet I get messages every day from people as well. What we have found is that presenting veganism as an appealing way of life is the most effective. Most people these days are learning about veganism through social media. It is the most powerful tool for our generation and for engaging directly with people. Most find transitioning to veganism to be a very a huge step. If we went fully into every issue, we’d struggle to engage people.
You are also assuming that other causes aren’t as important to us because we aren’t posting about them. Why is it the responsibility of the vegan to make sure every world issue is addressed? Of course we can bring awareness to a host of issues but generally as people wake up, they themselves will become interested in more aspects of saving the planet and can further educate themselves. Also different people stand stronger for different causes. I have friends that stand extremely strong for ethical fashion, more so than veganism. I have friends that stand stronger for women’s rights and equality, over veganism. It doesn’t mean veganism isn’t still important to them. Just because we may not post about waste or plastic does not mean it isn’t an issue that is important to us. We have just chosen to put our main focus into not eating animals and the impact that consuming them has on our planet. At the end of the day we all want to make change and create a better future for our planet.
I think it’d be more beneficial for you to not spend your time attacking myself or my friends for falling short (in your opinion) on certain issues and instead use your energy to bring awareness to the issues you feel strongly about.
