  • In a Shopping Mall - Wool? Leather? Down?

    Searching for and buying male pants in a local shopping mall in California, looking for options for vegan belts, shoes, and clothing. It took us 4 hours to find a model of cotton khakis that matches two people (they needed the same look).

    Down is harvested as a byproduct of the meat industry, geese and ducks are raised for slaughter. But there’s an economic temptation to live-pluck the birds. The plucking of live birds become rare nowadays,  and is against the law in the US and in several European countries. But live-plucking ducks and geese still practiced at factory farms in China, Poland and Hungary.

Mahatma Gandhi

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Grains

Grains are small, hard, dry seeds, with or without attached hulls or fruit layers, harvested for human or animal consumption. The two main types of commercial grain crops are cereals (e.g. wheat, rye) and legumes (e.g. beans, soybeans). Seeds

After being harvested, dry grains are more durable than other staple foods, such as starchy fruits (e.g. plantains, breadfruit) and tubers (e.g. sweet potatoes, cassava). This durability has made grains well suited to industrial agriculture, since they can be mechanically harvested, transported, stored for long periods, and milled for flour or pressed for oil. Major global commodity markets exist for canola, maize, rice, soybeans, wheat, and other grains but not for tubers, vegetables, or other crops.
