Let Vegetarianism Grow On You!

  1. Lovely idea! That really is a rather beautiful dress, although a tad stinky, I suspect! She looks like a vegetation goddess. I have been veggie for so long now, it is such a part of my life, that I barely think about it. Never really been against people eating meat, just hated the cruelty of factory farming and the way animals are so often viewed as commodities rather than sentient beings who feel pain, joy and fear. Most folks would be greatly upset by what it takes to get their meat to their plate but I think it’s important to acknowledge that uncomfortable process; it is too easy to look at prepared meat and not make the connection to the animal or the life lost (that another’s might continue). I think that this disconnection from the taking of life can also cut us off from our own sense of gratitude for that sacrifice. We have become too divorced from the origins of the food we eat – meat or otherwise – to our detriment I feel.

    Edible clothing – this could work rather well with a love of naturism, don’t you think?
