Taking action: extinction, meatless campaigns and electronic music vegans

You can’t have your burger and eat it too

A new Center for Biological Diversity campaign called “Take Extinction Off Your Plate” aims to fuel the argument for vegetarianism by warning consumers that eating meat and promoting the livestock industry is causing some wildlife—like some species of bears and wolves—to become endangered or extinct. 

Meatless for a day

Last Thursday was the Vegan Day of Action sponsored by Farm Animal Rights Movement. The organization encouraged people to eliminate meat from their diet for a day and engage in social media using the hashtag #Meatout.

The sweet sounds of vegan

Electronic musician Moby proclaimed his vegan diet is a product of his love for animals, specifically his childhood pets, in an op-ed in Rolling Stone last week. He’s followed this lifestyle for 27 years—almost three decades.
