Quote of the Day: Gandhi

quote23“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

– – – – –

In this part of the world, we are blessed to have organizations like the Humane Society, the SPCA, and PETA – among many others – who advocate for the rights and proper treatment of our animal brothers and sisters. Based on this quote, it would appear, at first glance, that our Canadian and American nations are great and take measures to protect their animals.

Unfortunately, it is a delusion.

What the average consumer doesn’t stop to think about are the countless cruelties our animals are involved in every day within our conventional food, beauty, and fashion industries. I won’t go into details because they are horrific and unpleasant; but they are our reality and people need to be aware that the foods we eat and the products we buy support this.

I think part of our nation’s steps towards greatness and moral progress need to focus on ways we can take the cruelty out of our daily routines and consumables.

The best way to do so is for people like you and I – who already realize the issue at hand and care deeply enough to help change things – to continue using our buying dollars to support the awesome companies that provide us food, beauty products, and clothing while committing to respecting the earth and all of its beautiful animals.

And, as always, sharing our passion with those around us.
