Imagine…

“…Imagine how you would feel if your package of hot dogs included a label with the name, picture, and description of the pig from whom the meat was procured…”

    That’s exactly one of the main problems, disassociation from what is packaged as meat, and the animal people are actually eating! Love this.

    • I couldn’t agree more! When I was eating meat, I never thought of it as an animal. I’m sure I would have become vegan a long time ago if I had to kill the animals I ate. Great comment – thanks!! Celeste 🙂

  6. I think it would be a good idea…maybe then people will start to make the connections.

    If that were the case I would have been vegan long ago!

  8. Someone I know said to me once “I don’t think about where meat comes from, because I like eating it. If I thought about it, I wouldn’t be able to eat it”. I imagine labels like that would make it harder for people to disconnect between what they’re eating and where it came from.

    • What an interesting thing for someone to say to you! I think there would be a lot more vegetarians in the world if we were more connected to our food. So sad that we’re not. Hopefully we’re helping to make changes in a positive direction. Thanks for your comment! Celeste 🙂
