Cleaning the oceans one step at a time

Two Australians created this container that collects plastic, paper, oil, fuel and detergent floating in the ocean. They want to implement it the middle of next year to clean up the sea worldwide. It seems a great idea. The only “but” as always is money, so they are raising funds to get to their goal. You can see their project and donations here.

Just an FYI for those of you who think ‘catch and release’ is humane. Most fish die later anyway due to shock, not to mention having your face punctured by something that is roughly the thickness of one of your bones and then being suffocated for a few minutes could never be considered “humane.” Animals are not your toys, little children. Leave them the fuck alone and find something else to play with.

People are living on top of each other yet 45% of the earth’s total land mass is dedicated to animal agriculture.

We currently have enough food to feed 10 billion people, but we live in a world where 82% of starving children live in countries where food is fed to animals, and then the meat is consumed by wealthier countries.

we are struggling to feed a population yet 1.5 acres of land can provide 37,000 pounds of plant based food.
1.5 acres of land can produce 375 pounds of meat.

¾ of the world’s fisheries are depleted. Scientists estimate we may have a fishless ocean by 2048

Does anybody else see a problem with this?

8 Reasons Vegans Never Shut Up About Veganism

1. Because meat is the leading cause of climate change.

True story. The meat industry emits more greenhouse gases than all the transportation in the world combined!

2. Because the egg industry grinds up live baby chicks.

Because male chicks will never lay eggs, they are considered useless to the egg industry and are killed almost immediately after birth.

3. Because meat is linked to heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and even cancer.

A recent study by the World Health Organization placed processed meat in the same carcinogenic category as cigarettes and asbestos.

4. Because battery cages, gestation crates, and veal crates are a disgrace.

Many animals on factory farms live in spaces so small they can’t even turn around, lie down comfortably, or stretch their limbs. This is cruel and unacceptable.

5. Because babies are taken away from their mothers.

The dairy industry rips baby calves away from their mothers when they’re only a day old.

6. Because once you go vegan you feel amazing.

Many people who go vegan report feeling lighter, more energetic, and relieved of chronic health issues.

7. Because the food is delicious.

Once you go vegan, an entire new world of culinary delights opens up! Check back here frequently for recipes and ideas.

8. Because food wasted on farmed animals could feed the hungry.

There are a billion starving people on the planet. It takes 16 pounds of grain to produce just one pound of beef. Think about it.

Things I’ve Learned Since Going Vegan
  • You can slice someone’s throat and still love them. 
  • The word “need” can only also mean “could easily live without but do kinda want.”
  • The word “humane” can mean literally anything you want it to.
  • It’s okay to call people out for harmful behaviour unless that behaviour involves bacon.
  • Plants definitely feel pain and lawns scream when you mow them.
  • Crop workers are exploited but slaughterhouse workers definitely aren’t. No exploitation here, no sir. 
  • Meat is the only food that contains protein.
  • “Found the vegan” is still funny and original the millionth time. 
  • Before humans came along, cows were just wandering around with massive udders praying for someone to invent industrialised agriculture. 
  • Steak is cheaper than beans, rice, pasta and canned vegetables. 
  • While 99% of all meat comes from factory farms, no one eats that meat.
  • Everyone only buys local, organic, humane, Dalai Lama approved meat. 
  • Everyone has an uncle who owns a farm straight out of a 1950′s Americana magazine.
  • Everyone has a degree in nutrition and evolutionary biology. 
  • Everyone knows that one guy who went vegan and almost died.
  • Everyone is free to talk about their identity, beliefs and interests without being shamed for them. Unless they’re vegan. Vegans can fuck off.
