We enjoyed our first completely vegetarian Thanksgiving. I feel good boycotting an environmentally destructive industry: no sentient beings suffer to satisfy my personal desires, and I have turned my back on an industry that is laying waste to nature, lying to us about the environmental costs of the products they sell, threatening our health and showing a cruel disregard for life.
When I review all the small changes I’ve made over the past four years, I feel really good. If I can do it, anyone can. For 2012, I invite you to consider instituting a few lifestyle changes to facilitate sustainability for all living things.
Our small, cumulative efforts make a big difference.
