Dirty agribusiness costs us the earth! PGG Wrightson Ltd and Carrfields NZ have plead guilty to recklessly dumping waste from the largest stock yards in the southern hemisphere into Feilding's Makino Stream.

"The Court noted that PGG Wrightsons and Carrfields are large companies who had been very careless about how they managed disposal of animal effluent." The future of ecological welfare is vegan 😎🌻

In the wake of Christchurch's terror attack, columnist Kathy Cunningham imagines what a kindness-focused future for NZ might look like. It takes a while, but she eventually also ties the idea to the way we eat, imagining an abundant plant-based future. "It will take effort but I believe we will live in a kinder society based on what is currently happening in New Zealand, but we have to be diligent and vigilant with a compassionate awareness." The future is vegan 😎🌻

The future is up to us

Show of comments: How do we feel about 'flexiterianism'? A good gateway to lure unsuspecting omnivores towards a sordid life of veganism? Or an animal-ignoring cop out that won't lead to real change? Somewhere in between, perhaps? The future is, obviously, vegan 😎🌻
