The milk industry is trying to put up a fight with a sad #Februdairy campaign in response to Veganuary. Meanwhile, Mike Stura from Skylands Animal Sanctuary posts a video of a calf rescue. How amazing for that calf and how said at the same time. Do you see all those plastic boxes that seem to be stretching out indefinitely? They are filled with boy calves that are taken away from their moms right after birth, so that the milk that was intended for them, can be stolen and sold to humans instead. Grieving moms, crying babies, plastic boxes, freezing cold. I just can't. :(
I hope more and more people will wake up to this and more businesses (e.x., Elmhurst Dairy is now plant-based Elmhurst Milked!).
