Animal Ethics

22): Mr. Steiner might feel less lonely as an ethical vegan—he says he has just five vegan friends—if he recognized that he has allies in mere vegetarians (like me), ethical omnivores and even carnivores.

Go vegan, go vegetarian, go humane or just eat less meat.

The next logical step for those who eat in restaurants is to demand more vegetarian-vegan options on their menus.
