"All Natural" Versus "Organic" & Everything In Between

Let’s face it, grocery shopping can be expensive, especially when trying to buy high quality, healthy foods. If health is on your radar chances are you buying products at the supermarket that read: “all-natural,”“organic,” “grass-fed,” and “cage-free.” However what do these terms really mean? 309 more words

Debbie Robinson reblogged this on Crash Test Vegan and commented:

The article below, originally from One Green Planet, explains why I had no option but to go vegan. You can't have a society that consumes as many animals as we do in a capitalist economy and expect that there is some way we can do it without causing suffering and death. And 'humane' practices lead to greater environmental destruction. The only option I can see is to stop consuming animals altogether. We are destroying our planet's ecosystem - the one that makes it possible for US to live here. At some point, hopefully very soon, we have to wake up and realise, we can't continue with our heads in the sand, we do terrible, terrible things and we have to stop. The type of cage we confine animals to is irrelevant - they are still breed and held against their will, usually in horrible and abusive conditions and then they are slaughtered, and there is no 'humane' way to kill someone against their will. When I read about some of these campaigns with a vegan perspective I feel outraged. It is all marketing spin from the industry. Yet, for years I brought into it and ate 'free-range'. I am angry with myself for being so gullible. If I had spent even 20 minutes really thinking it through I would have realised what BS it was, but I DIDN"T WANT TO think about it because then I would have had to change my behaviour. I am confused about why vegans support these campaigns. We know they are wrong. We know people need to face it head on and change. I know people need time to change. But if we (vegans) don't show them where the goalposts are, who else will?

A Guide to What Kind of Eggs You Should Buy

Whether you like your eggs sunny side up or hard-boiled, deciphering the claims on the carton has never been such a scramble. You’ve already seen everything from “organic” to “Omega-3-enriched.” Now, there’s a new designation that debuted on January 1, when California began requiring all eggs sold there to come from hens with room to move around without bumping into each other. 696 more words
