Lexy (pictured above) and other animals raised for food are individuals with their own likes, interests, and personalities. Simply by choosing to take animals off your plate, you can help protect individuals like Lexy from the fear and cruelty in factory farms and slaughterhouses.
Livestock production has been linked to the biggest environmental problems facing us today. Choosing meat-free can save water, save land, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect the planet for future generations.
