Why do we need a live counter for killed animals?

This online counter for animals killed around the world serves to raise our awareness of these 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 is almost impossible to support. But unfortunately, animals don't speak our language and have hardly any rights in our society. And to get more people to stand up for them, we need this live counter.

Billions of animals are exploited, slaughtered and gassed every year. However, "modern animal husbandry" is not only a problem from an ethical point of view. Animal feed, irrigation and grazing land, among other things, also result in an enormous consumption of resources that is destroying our planet and is the main cause of, for example, the Deforestation of the rainforests is. What's more, we wouldn't even have to eat animal-based foods and could live a much healthier life with a purely plant-based diet.

Future generations will probably look back on our actions with disgust and ask us: why didn't you do something 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 it's burgers, pizza, pasta, cheese, leather or silk - everything is also available in plant-based form! In my opinion, it takes 1-2 weeks to get used to it, both in the supermarket and in terms of taste 🙂

On the other hand, you can also use as a vegan activist and Educational work operate. Just as you may have become aware of the background to factory farming through this live counter, this can also work for many other people. But you can also take the opportunity to talk about veganism and the treatment of animals in your immediate family circle from time to time.

These are the documentaries you should watch

Personally, the Film Dominion shaken up. It shows exactly how we use animals for our food, entertainment, clothing and, last but not least, for Animal testing exploit. The situation is similar with films Earthlings, Cowspiracy and Seaspiracy. If you are more interested in the health aspects, be sure to check out the documentaries What The Health and The Game Changers an.

A detailed overview of the best vegan documentaries can be found in the linked article.

You should follow these YouTube channels

Films create a rough overview and awareness. But to stay on the ball and learn more about the vegan way of life, which tries - as far as practicable - to avoid all forms of exploitation of animals capable of suffering for food, clothing and other purposes. I was particularly impressed by vegan YouTuber helped, for example, the Scientifically underpinning a plant-based diet, you unbeatable delicious recipes to the hand and Street interviews and other educational formats introduce

You should read these books

There are countless books on the consumption of animals and plant-based diets. The knowledge from these strengthens your attitude, Makes your vegan life so much easier and is also a good Assistance in everyday discussions. I can definitely recommend the following books - but there are so many more!
