"Love of animals is a universal impulse, a common ground on which all of us may meet. By loving and understanding animals, perhaps we humans shall come to understand each other." - Dr Louis J. Camuti
The United States will have its first ever all vegan school in 2015. MUSE School CA was founded by environmental activist Suzy Amis Cameron (aka wife of James Cameron) and her sister Rebecca Amis back in 2006. Since then, kids have been encouraged to "live consciously within themselves" and with solar panels across the school, classrooms built with recycled materials and 160 raised boxes for planting produce on site, the school has been doing the same. Now, getting rid of meat for good is the next eco-friendly move. "Each year since I've been here, we've eliminated one or two days of meat to the point where now we're just serving one meat meal a week," said Kayla Webb, who started working at the school three years ago when it served organic meat at lunch for students and staff every day of the week. "Starting next year, it’s going to be completely plant-based eating."
