Why is there a need for a live counter for animals killed?

This online counter for animals killed around the world serves to raise our awareness of innocent, sentient creatures and how we treat them. What we do to them in the Factory farming is creepy and anything but humane. To consume animal products without being without cruelty to animals to support is almost impossible. But animals unfortunately do not speak our language and have hardly any rights in our society. And for more people to stand up for them, this live counter is needed.

Billions of animals are exploited, slaughtered and gassed every year. But "modern animal husbandry" is not only a problem from an ethical point of view. Among other things, through animal feed, irrigation and grazing areas, an enormous consumption of resources also takes place, which destroys our planet and is, for example, the main cause of the Deforestation of the rainforests is. In addition, we would not even have to eat animal foods and could live much healthier with a purely plant-based diet.

Future generations will probably look back on our actions with disgust and ask: why didn't you do anything about it?

What can I do about the death of these animals?

To prevent the death of these animals, on the one hand, it helps to leave them in peace. Avoid animal foods and replace them with plant-based alternatives. Whether burgers, pizza, pasta, cheese, leather or silk - all this is also available in vegetable form! After 1-2 weeks you have, in my opinion, both in the supermarket and taste grooved 🙂.
