@danidee Those documentaries surely did have a big effect on me, but I've decided to stop consuming meat when i was really young, i think that main reason was that I've seen face to face how animals are killed and it broke my heart. Of course back then i was sure that consuming eggs and diary is okay. But I think that's really important to see things from environmental point of view as well, because most of the people just focus on animal rights (: Oh and i absolutely love speeches by Gary Yourofsky, his speech on youtube called "Best speech you will ever hear" is super popular and I've seen it million times and I still cry each time i see it.
@yernaya the environmental point of view is really important! Our production systems are incredibly wasteful.
Thank you so much for this card! I really need to check out all of these films...especially the Vegetate one! I would love to try vegan for a while!
@nicolejb you should totally give it a try! Seriously it's the best decission I've ever made and my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. I went vegan purely because of animals and enviroment and my life completely changed, especially health wise, i feel great, my skin is literally glowing and i used to be extremely anemic with 0 energy and since i became vegan I am at my best health!
Ugh, I know this sounds super lame @yernaya but I really like meat a lot. Plus my family eats a lot of it, so I’m sort’ve obligated. I might test it out for a week or so. See if I can change my habits!
