Whilst it’s true that eating a plant based diet is not the norm by any means in Australia, it is definitely on the rise as people become more conscious and more concerned about practices surrounding animal industries.
I have been so amazed to see the Make it Possible campaign launch in Australia with so many of our celebs backing the move to end factory farming. I actually even donated to their cause today (not something I often do). They rely solely on donations to keep the campaign running.
I know that talk about this leads to many feeling uncomfortable and judged. For me it’s not about that. I wonder if we can leave the judgement of each other aside and look at practices with animals and judge that as to whether it is something we are ok with or not. For me, it’s a no. I have always always always been a person that can’t bear the pain of animals. Just ask my mum! 🙂 But as an adult, it is more than that for me now. For me it taps into who we understand ourselves to be in the universe and how we can make compassionate and conscious choices. This might be for some, as simple as demanding more from industries to clean up their act ethically.
Visit Make it Possible. Donate, sign, FB…whatever. Spreading the cause to end factory farming is a great thing.
