Let's Give Animals a Happy New Year!

Let's Give Animals a Happy New Year!

The new year is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf. So we hope that the animals have made it onto your resolution list! If not, then we've got a few suggestions for how you could make a world of difference for animals and the planet in the new year:

  1. Pledge to take animals off your plate. All animals - cats, dogs, pigs, lambs and even fish! - are individuals with feelings and their own desires and as the actor James Cromwell said, "I don't eat anyone who would run, swim, or fly away if he could."

    If you think animals rock, but need a little added incentive to take that next step, then this film should give you the extra motivation you're looking for:


  2. Already meat-free and lovin' it? Great! Then how about taking the next step and giving dairy and eggs the flick?

    Sadly, the milk and egg industries aren't without their body count - and it's the babies of these industries who are the first casualties. About 12 million day old male chicks and a million unwanted baby calves from the dairy industry are discarded and killed as 'waste products' each year. And even dairy cows and egg laying hens don't get to live a full life. When they are no longer productive enough to be profitable, they too find themselves on the way to be slaughtered.


  3. So you're meat-free, don't do dairy and set a good eggsample by not eating eggs? Awesome! Then next year make your voice heard, even louder, for the animals!

So that's our tips for the new year. Now... what are your new year's resolutions?

it is my hope that 2011 will be better for the animals the world over than it has been this previous year. my resolution is to do more to raise the awareness of what racing greyhounds are subjected to. To alert others to the plight of the Spanish galgoes to put the spot light on factory farming and its mistreatment of the poor creatures within it. It is also to write more to get more aquaintances and possibilly friends. I wish all of you a very happy new year lets help as many of them as we can in this comming year that has now come.  ecstatic

So much has changed for me in just a year, and by changing myself I am opening up the eyes of those around me and helping them change too. I plan on making even more change 2012 because every person makes a different. Even if it is just to the lives of one animal, it adds up.

Earthlings did me a world of wonders by showing me the cruelties of factory farming and what eating/wearing animals does and was the very thing that turned me vegan!

And use my culinary prowess and barrages of nutritional information to persuade the less animal-rights inclined of my friends to go veg.

I am now 95% vegan with only the array coffee I have in the morning left (I make it but instead of using my rice milk I use cold water to bring the temp down). I think it has milk solids in it. Otherwise I've kicked it all!
