Make The Pledge For Compassionate Traditions 2018
46 million turkeys are slaughtered every year for Thanksgiving alone. More than 22 million are killed for Christmas along with pigs, chickens, ducks, and lambs. Their short lives are spent in extreme confinement without ever stepping foot outside. Because there are so many packed tightly together, many become injured and sick (see video below). Join Sage Mountain in celebrating the lives of ALL beings this holiday season and pledge to leave animals and animal products (meat, dairy, eggs, and fish) off your plate. Your health, the planet and the animals will thank you!!
Direct Action Everywhere released this footage of Utah based turkey plant, Norbest, which is one of the largest turkey cooperatives in the US, producing 5 million turkeys a year.
Also check out this short film made by Jack Gladson, a 9th grade student at Treasure Mountain Jr High. Students like Jack were linked to different non profits to help create logos or different marketing techniques for campaigns.
