Protein & Paper

Saw this online – ‘Meat has no life. It is just protein. Many people protest the destruction of forests and will not chop a tree down. But they still happily use paper.’

Such severe short-sightedness in merely three lines! Er… Why not breed and kill humans before eating them then? They are just protein too? No? All meat belonged to sentient beings. As long as there is demand for meat, there will be systematic supply of sentient beings being bred, exploited and killed. Lifeless meat does not pop up from nowhere. It comes from much suffering, pain and death.

And who says we need to use lots of fresh non-recycled paper? This is not an ‘all or nothing’ world. We can minimise harm to both sentient beings and the environment we together live in.
