Veganism
Plenty of people doing "grass" it seems...
Most do not drink it though.

*phew* tried holding back as long as I could, was hoping someone else would go for it.


I have a hard time thinking that Vegan lifestyle can be sustainable.
  1. The most sustainable way to live, the way I see it, must be choosing food that has never been near any form of transportation. Using little to no pesticides.
  2. Choosing clothes made from fibres that does not require pesticides, wool, or perhaps even some kinds of leather, provided the process has been gentle and the curing process with little to no waste.
  3. Choosing electronics made from materials with traceable origin, perhaps using casing from wood/cellulose or composites made with volcanic ashes and/or corn cobs.

And how are things really done?
  1. The Vegan diet frequently demands items that come from remote locations, most of which have incredibly long and hard work hours. Big no-no.
  2. Vegans are good at using alternative fibres, but not good at using local sources of wool and leather. Working in all conditions sometimes demand the use of sturdy, weather resistant materials (so maybe most Vegans do not work that hard?).
  3. Many Vegans completely ignore the origins of their Electronics products, and where do you think the plastics in your Iphone/Ipad comes from? Dead dinosaurs!

That's not nice. Reminds me of the old joke though: How can you tell if someone is a vegan?

Well, they drink it.
For "detox", "cleaning" usually. The raw plant diet in particular can be very dodgy if you don't know exactly what you are doing. The vegan movement lately is mostly inspired by social media and we all know how reliable and beneficial that is to physical and mental health.

Same here, I don't buy it, seems evident they have jumped on the climate change bandwagon, means to an end again I suspect.

"Animal activists should emphasize reduction, not elimination, of eating meat."

84% of Vegetarians and Vegans Return to Meat. Why? | Psychology Today
