Go Vegan!


For the Animals 
• Because whenever they are treated as products rather than the sentient beings that they are, they suffer http://www.nationearth.com/earthlings-1/
• They are here with us, not for us. 
• Just because they are different from us, doesn’t mean that they aren’t sentient nor intelligent in their own way https://www.facebook.com/mercyforanimals/videos/10154770111524475/
Like us, they have: a brain, a heart, eyes. Like us, they seek comfort. And like us, they don’t want to suffer.

For the People
• We could distribute resources better to feed a lot more people https://youtu.be/Hvdgz536ZLE
• There are antibiotic resistant bacteria that are continuously adapting which start in farm animals and transfer to humans. We'll be wiping ourselves out with avoidable deadly infections.https://youtu.be/mUYhAJ6MDrc?t=3m12s

And for the Planet
• Animal agriculture is the leading cause of climate destruction https://youtu.be/dSjE8xw_-Dg
• 75% of fisheries have either been exploited or depleted. We pull an estimated 2.7 trillion sea animals from the ocean in a year. The ecosystem of the ocean is extremely relevant to us because without the phytoplanktons, we’ll have 50-80% less oxygen. Since 1950, we’ve seen a 40% decline in phytoplankton. To quote Captain Paul Watson, ‘If the ocean dies, we die.’
