“Animals are being EXPLOITED in such an unbelievable way; it's not ACCEPTABLE.”
“The reality of animal factories is SHOCKING. They destroy the planet and the environment. 40 billion animals born into SUFFERING. It’s the worst chronic disaster in the history of the world.”
“How we treat the VULNERABLE is how we define ourselves as a SPECIES.”
“Factory farming of animals will be one of the things we look back on as a RELIC of a less-evolved age.”

"In my opinion, organic is not as mainstream as it SHOULD be; it's gotten a reputation of being ELITIST or highbrow. The reality is, food should be organic for EVERYONE. Food is life. Everyone deserves a HEALTHY, happy life."

"A fundamental interest in preserving the environment is itself FASHIONABLE."
"For the first time in recorded human HISTORY, we have the FATE of the whole planet in our hands."

"EVERYBODY should be concerned with where our food comes from."
"I want a cup of coffee, but I DON'T want a GMO."
"I suggest you Google Roundup, Monsanto and GMOs and put your angst into something really THREATENING."
"We need to RECONNECT the dots with our food and know where it came from. The minute you know where you food came from, you get a connection with it – and you can ENJOY it that much more."
"I use only ORGANIC foods for my son, and it made me THINK about what I put into my body, too."
"Chickens, cows, and pigs in factory farms spend their whole LIVES in filthy, cramped conditions, only to die a prolonged and painful death. I couldn't STAND the idea that I was supporting the extreme CRUELTY of factory farming."
