Da hell?

I missed this one a couple weeks ago: The U.S. House of Representatives voted to repeal the Country of Origin Labeling act, which mandates that meat is labeled with information on where the meat is sourced.

It appears the Senate has yet to consider the bill on its floor.

It also looks as though I need more education on this topic. But if our clothes and other food items are labeled, why can’t meat be?

See Bill Maher’s riff on the issue.

(You might never know it, but Bill Maher is a PETA supporter.)

Wut

Interrupting my hiatus of laziness for this important message.

I cannot wait.

Support vegan ice cream in Seattle!

Gee golly has it been a long time since I’ve posted here. I have tons of posts in the queue, but work and life have been crazy. You know how that goes.

Now even though I have plant-based adventures to share with you, this piece is time sensitive and I should have posted it sooner!

Last week I found out about Seattle Cookie Counter – a vegan ice cream sandwich project that will travel throughout Seattle in a VW bus selling ice cream sandwiches to the masses.

It’s raising money on Kickstarter until 11:59 p.m. tomorrow and you should pitch in! It only requires a $1 minimum donation.

Now I didn’t really have enough dough to donate as much as I wanted until today and fortunately, it has already surpassed its minimum goal of $18,000. Hooray! This is now a reality!

But I think local, vegan small businesses are peachy keen and wanted to pitch in, anyway. And cash in on an awesome little reward for donating.

Plus their video on their Kickstarter page made me drool. I lurrrve sorbets and stuff, but their ice cream looks like the rich, creamy stuff I have honestly missed since going plant-based. Now I want it in my tummy!

Here’s what they promise if they exceed their goal:

-A permanent curb space in the U-District
-Wholesale sammies at small, local businesses
-A private ice cream sammie party for all the backers

Support them now.
