I feel that there is a growing awareness that cruelty-free living and veganism relates to the role we want to play in the universe, to our duties toward animals, the environment, and the future of our planet.
Many recent documentaries have inspired so many and showed how a plant-based diet positively impacts the planet and our health. I highly recommend What The Health, Fork Over Knives, Cowspiracy, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, and Food Inc.
A recent report published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization shows that the animal farming industry generates more greenhouse gas emissions than all transportation... this is insane! Plus animal farming is also a major source of rainforest deforestation and water degradation, destroying wildlife and polluting our water reserve.
The growing awareness comes from a realization that each and every one of us has a role to play in this world, and that each and every one of us makes some kind of impact on the planet every day. We are in such a fortunate position of being able to choose what sort of impact we make and ask ourselves how little choices affect future generations.
The choice is ours and the power is in each of these little choices we make every day. What do we buy? What do we wear? What do we eat? Each time we choose to purchase products that are vegan and made without animal testing, we make a conscious decision to support the health of our planet as well as the wellbeing of all the beings that live on it.
So we want to thank you all for taking a stand and keeping our furry friends safe every time you choose Odacité!
