Really enjoy this perspective on the different types of veganism from @namelymarly. I often feel really weird discussing my takes on veganism around people, particularly because I do eat eggs, but only from ethical, organically fed sources, and sometimes from the chickens of someone I know. Seemed like last time I really talked much about that, some people I’d considered friends decided they didn’t want to talk to me anymore, though my ethics were pretty much the same. While I did use to be a militant vegan keyboard activist, for a while now I’ve mostly been of the mindset of doing the very best that one can, and learning how much one can do better. My heart is with the animals and with the environment, especially in how much of the damage in the Amazon is being done for the sake of cheap livestock farming, soy crops to feed the livestock, logging, and palm oil farming. The meat you get from Walmart, McDonalds, Safeway, Purina pet food, Wendy’s, Subway, Burger King, Pizza Hut... where do you think it comes from? Check your processed food ingredients, chances are palm oil is there. Personally I emphasize research and digging a bit more into these things to figure out where you can reduce your impact, where to source your food from. Vote with whatever you’ve got in your wallet by learning which companies source ethically, but aim for local as much as possible. There’s no need to go fully vegan, but learn how to reduce, incorporate vegan meals, and eat locally— buy from local farmers and stores/restaurants that source locally. The Amazon is burning because we keep saying yes instead of learning when to say no. Corporations will continue to do whatever brings them more money, show them what’s up through your fiscal actions and lifestyle choices. .
