I just realized that you don't have to go fully #Vegetarian or #Vegan to boycott the industries. I'm not (yet?) willing to give up meat and eggs, but I just realized I'm fine with replacing milk, beef, and possibly pork. Sure poor chickens still get to suffer under me, but that's at least two major industries that I could boycott anyways 🤔
"The Game Changers" Masculinity and meat
Watched "The Game Changers" yesterday. It's a documentary promoting a #vegan lifestyle. My personal opinion: It is pretty clever. Its main audience is men who believe that eating meat is "manly" and it challenges a lot of what men are being told when it comes to diets. Thinking about it I get the feeling that it fully understands the role toxic masculinity plays here and carefully lures those folks subject to it in. Small steps at a time.

As if we needed more reasons to appreciate adblockers, it turns out they also help reduce power use, which I had never considered. https://webtest.app/?url=https://therising.co/2019/10/04/these-founders-are-proving-that-the-pet-food-industry-doesnt-have-to-harm-the-planet/

Who here is on #Manyverse?
A random thing I've been doing lately to reduce my waste – I keep any and all vegetable scraps in a bag in my freezer. Whenever I've collected enough, I boil them all up into vegetable stock to use in cooking, to give plenty of that sweet, sweet umami flavour.
All kinds of scraps go in the bag. Carrot peel. Onion skin. That one mushroom which always starts to go dry before I can use it. The only rules are to make sure everything's clean, and to avoid using anything which is rotten or mouldy.
Today I Learned that you can’t find #broccoli in the wild since it was created by humans by breeding it from wild cabbage.
