Vegan ACT's 30 Day Go Vegan Challenge

Hi <<First Name>>! 

WELCOME TO DAY TWENTY-NINE!


 


Kym's advice for day twenty-nine:

Don't fund companies who are still testing on animals. 
Currently there are still many large corporations testing things like cosmetics, pharmaceutical and everyday products such as cleaning products on animals. If you are willing to witness the immense cruelty of these procedures, watch this video on vivisection and animal testing. S
peciesism is the justification for animal testing and it is utterly morally wrong. Certain species of animals die in horrific experiments to allegedly benefit humanity and other chosen companion animals. As Mark Twain said: "I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't... The pain which it inflicts upon un-consenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further”. 

Yes, certain knowledge has been gained by animal testing in the past, however further knowledge is not worth having because it is violating the inalienable right that every sentient animal possesses; that of not being assaulted by humans. Although not widely accepted, but gaining momentum, is the abolitionist view on animal rights that maintains there is no moral justification for harmful research on animals. The benefits to humans can never justify the misery it bring to other animals. 

Authorities estimate hundreds of millions of animals a year are used in animal experimentation, worldwide. Generally, animals either die because of the experiment or are killed afterward. If you agree that this is morally incorrect, simply cease buying pharmaceutical, cosmetic and everyday products that are tested on animals and you automatically remove yourself from funding this atrocious and immoral activity.  

 

TODAYS ASSIGNMENT: Check out this terrific website that lists products that are certified cruelty-free (not tested on animals): www.choosecrueltyfree.org.au
 



Cassies' recipe idea for day twenty-nine: 


Watermelon with Pistachio Dukkah
Makes ½ cup
Ingredients
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp cumin seeds
½ cup pistachios, dry roasted
2 tsp flaked salt
1 kg watermelon, cubed
  1. In a small frypan, combine the sesame seeds, coriander seeds and cumin seeds over a low heat until lightly toasted.
  2. In a small food processor bowl, place the spices, pistachios and salt and blend until just before ground. It is nice to keep a bit of texture to the dukkah and looks beautiful too.
  3. Sprinkle over the watermelon cubes.
