Stop calling #vegan food “cruelty-free” : Ecorazzi https://t.co/5tYAkDiyJ5

I find it interesting that you qualified your comment with the adjective “consciously.” When the farmer grows a vegan meal, he purposefully and intentionally destroys every living thing upon the native landscape in order to establish the barren plot of soil (dirt, actually) that becomes his broccoli or bean field. Many vegans live in complete denial of this fact, suggesting they live a cruelty-free, no kill, lifestyle. Nothing could be further from the truth for any of us, as you have suggested. The trick is to reduce our impact as much as possible. Unfortunately, a line drawn arbitrarily between “animal” and “vegetable” foods does not achieve this goal as well as a more nuanced approach might. For many people, animal foods in the form of wild fish and game are available with less environmental impact and animal loss of life than are vegetable items.
