When Shit Gets Real
Updated: May 7, 2019
A few weeks ago I saw a post about the conditions under which chickens live in American factories. They are de-beaked and traumatized, beaten with sticks and kept too fat to even stand up, and laws protect the privacy of the monsters who have created such conditions. If people were being treated this way, no one would stand for it. This post led to more research and I found more horrifying stories and statistics. Raising animals for humans to eat is, in many cases, immoral and also an environmental disaster.
Steve and I have both been vegetarian for long periods in our lives. In the last few years, we have been eating seafood as well though we are cutting way back on that. We know it's easy to be in denial about the state of our planet. It's easy to say that one person's habits won't make a difference but that doesn't justify living unconsciously.
We are both deeply connected to nature and our animal family and so we discussed the peril of our planet and what we might do on a daily basis to, if not correct the damage, at least stop our contributions to it.
Join us on this journey as we discover new ways to leave no tracks on Mother Earth. We'll share what we find and how we adopt new habits of living in the hope it will inspire you to adopt some of your own.
