    Why The Yulin Dog Meat Festival Isn't a Big Deal

    Why The Yulin Dog Meat Festival Isn't a Big Deal

    The Yulin dog eating festival sparks enragement and controversy every year with a strong global outcry for its banishment. But, in all honesty, is it really that bad? How is it any different than what every other country is doing every single day? By Emily Moran Barwick at BiteSizeVegan.org.
    Original post: https://bitesizevegan.org/ethics/why-the-yulin-dog-meat-festival-isnt-a-big-deal/ 
    Bite Size Vegan was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to solid, factual information on issues impacting their health, our planet, society, and the lives of other sentient beings. The website, videos, resources and speeches serve to provide this access in formats tailored to modern methods of information consumption—digestible and approachable, yet backed by rigorous research.
    Believing in the power of an informed public, Emily provides free, open-access to right-to-know information in a digestible format. Bite Size Vegan fills a unique space in vegan activism & advocacy by bringing together the accessibility of engaging social-media content with the integrity and depth of research-backed, transparently-cited educational information. By helping people make the connection that veganism—far from an extreme way of life—is simply aligning our actions with the values we already have, Bite Size Vegan strives to end the pervasive exploitation of non-human animals.

Caron De Mars ,

A plethora of plant power packed in ten minutes!

Marian Erikson is a wonderful researcher, scanning all of the best science-based plant-based blogs, the most credible M.D.s in this space, and the full range of vegan activists tackling everything from animal rights to human trafficking connected to fish harvesting. I’ve been a voracious vegan seeking all of the knowledge I can since I went plant-based in 2019. Marian always introduces new concepts to me. As an environmental and compassionate vegan, I lament having to buy cat food with animal parts. I’m thrilled to know that just like in humans, it’s the nutrition and not the animal parts (I’ve always known that pet food would be even worse than what they put in sausage). I now have vegan cat food on order. Thank you Marian!
