Organic Bamboo Dog Collars

4 The Love Of Animals

An organic bamboo dog collar? The post Organic Bamboo Dog Collars appeared first on 4 The Love of Animals. That also looks great? Yes please! Just in time for summer too, because as you can see, Baby’s new bamboo collar is super spunky in blue and lime green. I love bamboo material for myself, my favorite sheets in the whole world are bamboo! Not only is bamboo a quick growing resource, but it is super soft, and Earth friendly.

Organizations Putting Animals First

4 The Love Of Animals

Thankfully, there are some organizations out there that make it their business to look after and care for our animal counterparts. Formed in 2007, this organization seeks to promote the humane treatment of animals by promoting effective animal sanctuary management. Led by professionals who have experience with organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States, the group is definitely not new to the issues surrounding animals worldwide.

An Animal Rights-Protection-Abolitionist Organization

Animal Person

The Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages calls itself "an animal rights-protection-abolitionist organization," which I find interesting. The well being of the horses should be the ideal of every organization whose mandate is to put animal protection ideals first - especially when they ask for donations based on that mandate. I've always thought of horse-drawn carriages the way I think about greyhound racing or fur: Most people are against them, so why are they still around?

Organic Food

Animal Ethics

Here is a New York Times editorial opinion about organic fish. The Times argues that the concept of organic food does not apply to wild animals. If organically raised fish suffer less than nonorganically raised fish, it is an accident, morally speaking. I'm not saying that there is no correlation between an animal being organically raised and it being treated in a morally permissible way; I'm saying that any such correlation is contingent rather than necessary.

On Why My Food Bill Just Got a Lot Cheaper

Animal Person

Because I am now less convinced of the merits of organic food than I used to be (low-yield, high land requirements, confusion over whether the natural chemicals are any better than the synthetic ones as well as whether or not organic is actually healthier). And if you're talking about organic on a scale that would feed the planet, it's impossible. McWilliams Just Food locavore organic food Deb wrote "Do Food Miles Matter?"

Where Does Vegan Baby Sky Get Her Protein?

Animal Person

Her nutrition came from Earth's Best organic soy formula for the first year, and since then she's been eating non-baby food supplemented by a bottle of Baby's Only organic soy formula (designed for toddlers and can be used until age 3). I use half water and half organic carrot juice and organic apple juice. Snow balls are a huge favorite (ground organic raisins, dates, almond and walnuts rolled in shredded coconut).

Thanks, once again, to James LaVeck and Jenny Stein of Tribe of Heart for kindly and carefully bringing attention to what should be a stunningly-obvious moment of hypocrisy by groups that exist to advocate for and save animals.

On "EATING ANIMALS" by Jonathan Safran Foer

Animal Person

However, Foer does claim to have spent a couple of years researching and it is odd to me that the only subject of animal rights discussion is an organization that is ambiguous, at best, in its message about animals.
