"Could you look an animal in the eyes and say to it, ‘My appetite is more important than your suffering’?” - Moby
“Veganism is not a limitation in any way; it’s an expansion of your love, your commitment to nonviolence, and your belief in justice for all.”  - Gary L. Francione
"If animals are not mere things; if they have moral value, we cannot justify eating, wearing, or using them particularly when we have no better reason than palate pleasure or fashion.  If you are eating, wearing, or using animals, then your actions say that you regard them as mere things, despite what your words say.” - Gary L. Francione
“Veganism is not about giving anything up or losing anything; it is about gaining the peace within yourself that comes from embracing nonviolence and refusing to participate in the exploitation of the vulnerable” - Gary L. Francione
“Being vegan is easy. Are there social pressures that encourage you to continue to eat, wear, and use animal products? Of course there are. But in a patriarchal, racist, homophobic, and ableist society, there are social pressures to participate and engage in sexism, racism, homophobia, and ableism. At some point, you have to decide who you are and what matters morally to you. And once you decide that you regard victimizing vulnerable nonhumans is not morally acceptable, it is easy to go and stay vegan” - Gary L. Francione

    Palm Oil - In the deforestation process, orangutans are often run over by logging machinery, beaten to deathburied alive or set on fire. And in some cases, the absolute unthinkable is done to female orangutans - they are captured and used in Indonesian brothels as prostitutes; where they are tied down and raped on a daily basis.

    recycleandcreate:

    A new trend in home improvement is to try to create more personalized space that would reflect your preferences and character, rooms full of originality and creativity. Although tastes are so varied , you can bring in your home with minimal financial investment, extraordinary decorative and useful furniture, sofas, tables, shelves made ​​from … wood pallets. Wood pallets have stopped being just simple building material and began to be used independently, in order to achieve originality and also cheap furniture. The possibilities in which you can use wood pallets are endless: you can paint and use them as a coffee table in the living room, sofa for the patio, flower holders or shelves in the kitchen. A set of wheels will only cost $ 3.49, and a pallet can be found at any materials storage for free or for a very small amount. If you can not find a pallet, it can be bought for $ 17 .

Pallet TheaterAnother super smart way to reuse crates. To get cheap cushions, try buying lawn furniture cushions/mattresses. Stack pallets in increasing order to create a “movie theater” feel.
