After outreach at CU Boulder, the national tour chowed down at the Beyond Burger Bar inside of @wholefoods. The Beyond Burger from @beyondmeat is a game changer! If you haven't tried it yet we recommend you do it ASAP!! It's crazy what plants can do🌱
Shout out to our friends Yaseer and Fahad at Norco College! Yaseer said "I've always kind of thought about going vegan, but after watching that I definitely have to try!" Thanks to you two + all of the kind souls we've had the pleasure of talking with these past two days! #govegan
A friendly dinosaur stopped by to talk to us about world hunger. Did you know that at least 70% of all the grain grown in the US goes towards raising farmed animals for slaughter? Let’s make the meat, dairy, and egg industry go extinct! We can use all of those resources to grow enough diverse crops to feed everyone!
"I used to think there was a better way to do things, but maybe the best way is to not do it at all..." True words of wisdom from our new friend K.C. Thank you for being so open-minded and talking to us not only one day, but two!
Today is National Farmer's Day! My dad and I are working tirelessly for the next week or so to get all the grapes picked. Even with this weeks natural disasters the farmers still have to continue with harvest.
Don't forget to thank a farmer today! And pray for those farmers out there whose land has been affected by the wildfires 🚜🙏
Last night the national tour crew got invited to Professor Albright's house for a delicious, 100% plant-based dinner. Our time in Ephraim is coming to an end and we'll definitely miss everyone's kindness and hospitality!
These @snow_college students, Destiny and Judith, have been trying to eat more compassionately for a while now. They asked us a lot of questions and we gave them some resources to help them on their vegan journeys. Good luck to you both!
They say if slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegan... The #iAnimal VR takes it a step further and lets you step inside them. These three @snow_college athletes are going to start eating more compassionate diets because of what they experienced today!
Say HELLO to the 2017 SW Fall Tour Crew! This is Becca’s first tour, and she’s already changed the hearts and minds of hundreds of students over the last week! And Xavier joins us after spending all summer spreading awareness of how messed up the dairy industry is with @peta2 on Warped Tour!
Christina is a student here at @snow_college . She watched our virtual reality and was really touched by it. She had actually already committed herself to meat free October and has been loving it so far! We're so happy for her decision to leave animals off her plate and wish her the absolute best on her vegan journey!
@farmusa meets @farmsanctuary! The SW Have We Been Lied To? Crew got the chance to hang out at Farm Sanctuary’s Animal Acres today before getting back to outreach tomorrow. It was such a powerful reminder of why we do the work that we do, meeting all of these animals in person. Hearing the stories of the individuals affected most by animal agriculture and seeing them being taken care of the way that they deserve was truly inspirational. Thanks to our tour guide, @breezyxvx and all the wonderful staff and volunteers at Animal Acres for taking such great care of these wonderful beings. And thank you to all of the animals for being such amazing ambassadors to humans, giving us all a chance to see them as the unique individuals they are! ❤️💛💚💙💜
To celebrate #nationalnoodleday the national tour refueled at Noodles & Company! The food was so delicious... It's amazing how easy it is to eat vegan anywhere you go. Our favorite dish was the Japanese Pan Noodles w/ seasoned tofu 🤤
The national tour crew is back at @collegeofsouthernidaho today paying people $1 to watch where their food comes from! We've had tons of positive conversations today and are so happy for all the students who pledged to eat cruelty and animal free!
Sometimes the truth about where our food comes from is hard to face... This couple found solace by holding hands as they took a 360 degree tour of the inside of a dairy farm. They were really moved by the footage and are going to make compassionate changes to their diets!
Omar, Ashley, and Brian took the pledge to go vegan!! They were disgusted after finding out what animals go through before becoming food, and are going to work together towards a vegan lifestyle! #CSUSanBernardino#GoVegan
Repost from @crueltyfreeyogi - Just wrapped up a demo at Orlando Live Poultry organized by @animalrightsfl for #WorldDayForFarmedAnimals . Towards the end of the protest we decided to go and stand directly in front of the building facing them. As all of us began walking towards the building we collectively felt a surge of anxiety and adrenaline. The fear and misery the animals were feeling was emanating from the building and overwhelming us. I have never been so close to a storefront slaughterhouse before and never want to be again. We could hear the animals crying out the entire time we were there. Animals deserve better. ✌🏼️❤️🌱 #govegan#wdfa#worlddayforfarmedanimals#dayforanimals#farmusa
