Verizon 157 AM 38% Can vegans stoma Share Can vegans stomach the unpalatable truth about quinoa? Ethical consumers should be aware poor Bolivians can no longer afford their staple grain due to western demand raising prices Peta response - Eating quinoa may harm Bolivian farmers but eating meat harms us all 1139 kaijutegu wocinsolidarity allahyil3analsohyouniyeh Omg look at petas response Holy shit what the fuck burn them omg so when we say fuck PETA you know where we’re coming from I just want to add on with a little tangent- if you are vegan vegetarian or just like quinoa there are ways to get it ethically that support farming communities directly! One way is to buy quinoa produced in the US it’s being grown in Colorado and a few places in the Pacific Northwest which reduces the amount of fuel needed to get it to you- if you live in the US of course! If you don’t many other regions are growing it too Another way you can directly support farmers is by buying from brands like Alter Eco They have environmental justice built into their mission statement and they work with local co-ops to create environmentally and financially sustainable agricultural practices that prioritize traditional farming methods rather than western factoryindustrial farming There’s other brands like this too!So you can have your quinoa and eat it too along with a biiiiiig side helping of fuck PETA Meme
