Liberation BC is on The Change – come join us!

Liberation BC has joined TheChange, which is a really cool site bringing together organizations committed to sustainability. Our page is here: http://www.thechange.com/liberation-bc/.

Help Animals Affected by Oil Spill pt. 2

Just a quick link: Gene Baur of Farm Sanctuary has published a great blog post about the impact our eating decisions have upon the environment, including our overconsumption of oil. http://farmsanctuary.typepad.com/making_hay/2010/06/the-power-on-your-plate.html I wrote about the oil spill about a month ago, when it had just happened.  Of course, the oil is still flowing today.  Sigh.

Help Animals Affected by Oil Spill

The timing of the spill, National Audubon reported Wednesday, could not be worse for birds, which are now nesting and therefore especially vulnerable in many of the places where the oil could come ashore. Said an Audubon bird conservation director: “We have to hope for the best, but prepare for the worst, including a true

Happy Earth Day!

Okay, so today is Earth Day, and we’ve just gotten back from our big vegan cupcake giveaway.  It was quite a hit! We were out at the art gallery last year for the same event, and I noticed a pretty definite change in the type of response we got.  EVERYONE liked the cupcakes–that certainly hasn’t

A bit of a meta-post on the Worldwatch report

Eric Marcus wrote on his blog yesterday about the recent WorldWatch article which concluded that animal agriculture is responsible for a whopping 51% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Marcus quotes from Dave Steele, who has written an analysis of the report. To sum up, Dave found that the actual number, based on the information from

Our appetites are killing the planet: Blog Action Day 2009 (Climate change)

It used to be that I would get up in the morning, eat a couple of eggs and have toast with butter, then have a ham sandwich for lunch with cheese and mayo, and then have a hamburger for dinner. All the while wearing some leather shoes and drinking glasses of milk. I think they

International Vulture Awareness Day

Today is International Vulture Awareness Day, and because I am a huge bird lover, I was excited for the opportunity to participate.  Vultures are finally getting the respect they deserve after years of being viewed as a creepy symbol of death and decay.  Of course, their unsavoury scavenging habits are actually an important part of
