NYC RESTAURANTEUR CHANGES 15 BARS & RESTAURANTS TO BE VEGAN 02/12/2016

The New York restauranteur has had environmental waste and factory farming on his mind, and now he's planning to make his fifteen bars and restaurants animal free. The first to make the switch will be his tiki bar named Mother of Pearl. Animal products will be eliminated from the menu on February 14. Ravi DeRossi has been in the business for eleven years, garnering a following for restaurants likes The Bourgeois Pig that feature cheese fondue and charcuterie plates. It'll be reopening as a vegan wine and tapas bar called LadyBird as part of his vegan transformation, this summer. DeRossi says he was a vegetarian and vegan long before his time in the hospitality industry. However, it was his cat's terminal illness that helped him reevaluate his current choices. "You don't realize that the average restaurateur does three times more destruction [to the environment] than the average person," he said. "I have 15 restaurants and bars. It started to weigh on me."

Book of the Month - Andrew Linzey: The Link Between Animal Abuse and Human Violence The Link Between Animal Abuse and Human Violence by Andrew Linzey

This book is essential reading for all those who have a stake in the debate, either because their academic work relates to the issues involved or because their professional role involves contact with the abused or the abusers, both human and animal. It is an authoritative and comprehensive volume on the link between animal abuse and human violence.

Activism

Animals deserve rights, regardless of how they taste or how convenient it is to experiment on them. Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives. They are not ours to use for food, clothing, experimentation, or entertainment.

As an activist, you can educate people in your community and positively affect their attitudes and lifestyles. You just need the desire to generate positive change and to believe that your voice and actions matter...
