Op/Ed: Unmasking Carnism's Greed: The Vegan Project Global Speaks Out

"By unmasking the greed within carnism, we can pave the way for a more compassionate and sustainable future, where the well-being of animals, people, and the planet takes precedence." Michael Corthell , Founder of The Vegan Project Global As advocates for a compassionate and sustainable world, The Vegan Project Global aims to shed light on the insidious association between carnism and greed. While many view carnism as a personal choice or cultural tradition, our mission is to reveal the hidden motivations that drive the consumption of animal products and the consequences they entail. Join us as we unmask the truth and advocate for a paradigm shift toward a more ethical and sustainable food system. "Carnism is the ideological system that conditions people to consume animal products, perpetuating the belief that it is normal, necessary, and justifiable while obscuring the ethical implications of our choices." In the pursuit of profit, the industrialization of animal

EDITORIAL: The Future of Veganism: A Paradigm Shift in Progress

"The rise of veganism is a transformative movement, reshaping our relationship with food, ethics, and sustainability, driven by environmental consciousness, health considerations, and innovative plant-based alternatives." The Vegan Project Global   Veganism is far from a passing trend; it is a transformative movement that is reshaping our perception of food, ethics, and sustainability. The escalating recognition of the environmental and health consequences tied to animal agriculture, coupled with the surge in inventive plant-based alternatives, indicates a promising future for veganism. One of the driving forces behind the rise of veganism is the mounting evidence of the environmental toll inflicted by animal agriculture. The production of meat and dairy products significantly contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, and water pollution. As concerns about climate change intensify, people are adopting plant-based diets as a concrete way to reduce their carbon fo

EDITORIAL: Quit Mocking Vegans!

''We should all strive to be more conscious of the impact our choices have on the world around us, and respect those who are making an effort to build a more sustainable future.'' By The Vegan Project Global It's time to stop mocking vegans. Yes, you read that right. Vegans have been the butt of jokes for years, with their dietary choices being ridiculed and dismissed by meat-eaters as a mere fad. But the truth is, vegans are right about ethics and the environment, and if you won’t join them, at least respect their effort to build a sustainable future. Let's start with the ethics of eating meat. Most people agree that it's wrong to hurt animals unnecessarily. Yet every year, billions of animals are raised in factory farms and slaughtered for food. The conditions in these farms are often cruel and inhumane, with animals being kept in cramped, unsanitary conditions and subjected to painful procedures like castration and dehorning without pain relief. Vegans ch

[Opinion] ‘Buying back’ the Amazon with meat alternatives

Future Farm’s Pedro Zuim explains why he believes meat alternatives will save the world . There’s a growing appetite of people turning to meat substitutes driven by a multitude of factors, including animal welfare, health and environmental concerns. Right now – more so than ever before – our planet needs us, and for the most part, we can all help. The simplest and most accessible way we can contribute is meatless alternatives. Food is more than just fuel; we eat for comfort, pleasure, nostalgia and variety. We know how our food should look and feel, and all the emotions it can evoke. Meat-free manufacturers have started to recognise this and create a new generation of plant-based ‘meat’ that tap into those senses. These products have all the seeming indulgence of meat but with a much lower environmental impact... Continue...

[Smart-Arsery] Here’s Why Vegan Diets Don’t Work

Thinking of changing things up and ditching animal products for good? Think again. Thinking of going vegan? You’d be joining an exclusive group of roughly 79 million if you do. It’s clearly not a popular lifestyle choice, and there’s a good reason for that: vegan diets don’t work. And here’s why. While the stereotype states that vegans only eat rabbit food, I’m sorry to tell you that if you were looking for a diet where carrots and hay are two of the key food groups, you’re going to be disappointed. Vegan diets are varied, and there is no singular way to follow one. If you love to eat only plant-based whole foods, that’s great. If you love the occasional indulgence, you’ll fit right in too. Name your favorite food and there’s probably a vegan version of it somewhere. Nowadays, supermarkets (like Tesco and Walmart ) are filled with dairy-free ice creams, vegan candy bars, and plant-based cheese. There are even vegan options at many of the world’s most popular fast-food chains. Continue

[Activism] Seaspiracy - An Animal Rights Activist’s Perspective

 Have you heard about this documentary Seaspiracy?  Of course you have.  While it may be a great resource to educate the public, what if the documentary, and the others in the series, were actually doing more harm than good for animal rights activists and our movement?  What if they were keeping us back from doing the crucial work to grow our movement and achieve the tangible goals the movie lays out for us? I have feelings. Obviously.
