Replace Factory Farming With Community, Plant-Based Systems

"When we exploit and harm others, we ultimately also harm ourselves, and the most egregious embodiment of such an unhealthy relationship with other animals is in the food industry, where billions of animals are mass-produced and slaughtered every year.
Factory farming needs to be dismantled and replaced with a community-oriented, plant-based food system, which requires far less land and other resources than animal agriculture. This would improve our health and allow natural ecosystems and biodiversity to recover while lowering the risk of the climate crisis, zoonotic diseases, and other threats to our well-being." —Gene Baur | Founder of Farm Sanctuary, author of Living the Farm Sanctuary Life: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Mindfully, Living Longer, and Feeling Better Every Day
