On Saturday, December 2018, over 300 friends of animals from Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia gathered on a rainy day in Zagreb to celebrate International Animal Rights Day together and bring attention to the injustice that happens to animals every day. The long and loud march, organized by Animal Friends Croatia and Udruga Pobjede, went for almost two hours through the center of Zagreb and, apart from its loudness and smoke fountains, was marked with the largest (3 x 9 meters) vegan flag in history! Please check and share photos by Ana Mihalic, Uros Modlic and Jelena Rasic from the 2nd March for Animals in Croatia! Animal Friends Croatia thanks all the supporters from Croatia and abroad!
12/07/2018 CHANEL BANS FUR AND EXOTIC SKIN
Iconic fashion brand Chanel announced it would no longer use fur and skins derived from crocodiles, lizards, and snakes after pressure from PETA. Chanel acknowledges these animal skins cannot be sourced ethically and no longer meet company's standards. The company characterized its new policy as "an opportunity to create a new generation of high-end products." With this decision, they joined a growing list of fashion labels that have banned the use of fur and other animal products in recent years. (vegnews.com)
Canada is aiming to corner the global market for plant-based protein with an investment of $153 million from a Protein Industries Canada Supercluster established this year by the federal government. Three of the country's provinces—Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba—are already some of the world's biggest producers of high-protein pulses such as peas and lentils. These provinces could get a boost as global demand for plant-based proteins—valued at $8 billion in 2017—is projected to nearly double over the next five years, according to non-partisan think-tank Canada West Foundation (CWF). "Unlike other superclusters, this one is not aspirational," CWF director, trade and investment policy Carlo Dade said. "Our goal is total world domination." The supercluster is intended to fund innovation in Canada's plant-based food sector, and is an initiative that was chosen over another supercluster proposal focused on animal farming. The protein supercluster aims to create 4,500 new jobs and contribute $4.5 billion to the country's GDP within 10 years. (vegnews.com)
Approximately 116 million tonnes (128 million tons) of milk are wasted annually, according to new research conducted on behalf of The Guardian by Edinburgh University. While consumers and retailers are responsible for 66 million tons of wasted milk, 55 million tons are discarded during production and distribution—pointing to the fact that the dairy industry is not only cruel to cows but also highly inefficient. Despite a steady decline in milk consumption since the 1970s coupled with a booming increase in plant-based milk consumption, the dairy industry in the United States continues to produce more milk than it can sell. In the first five months of 2017, farmers in the Midwest and Northeast alone purged 78 million gallons of milk—an increase of 86 percent from the surplus milk purge of 2016. Savvy farmers are exiting the dairy business, including Elmhurst which operated as a dairy company in New York for 90 years before transitioning its business to produce profitable plant-based milk products.
