Animal Justice, is hosting a free talk on Thursday, February 3 at 7 pm ET, “focused on the efforts by the meat industry to brand itself as sustainable, and dodge criticism about the enormous environmental impact of animal agriculture.”
“Regenerative Grazing” & “Low-Carbon Chickens”: How We Can Fight the Greenwashing of Animal Agriculture
Even though science tells us unequivocally that animal agriculture is a leading cause of the climate crisis, the meat, dairy, and egg industries have flooded the environmental conversation with lies and misdirections to deflect from this reality.
This panel will help us understand how the greenwashing of animal ag has taken hold, and how to most effectively dismantle the myths and put heat on this destructive practice of raising animals for food.
