What to Eat – by Plate to Planet
Now that you’ve watched the video, you may be reconsidering the food you put into your body – or your family members’ – every day. As you can see, the character voiced by Jason Schwartzman, best known for his roles in Bored to Death, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Funny People, chooses bacon, eggs, and toast for breakfast, a meat sandwich for lunch, but changes his mind by dinner time. The dinner meal he prepares for his family includes veggie tacos filled with beans and avocado. Do these food selections remind you of your own diet, or the kind of food you’d like to be eating?
The short film was created by an organization called Plate to Planet, which aims to lessen our reliance on what they refer to as Factory Farms, and overall reduce our consumption of meat.
What are Factory Farms?
Factory Farms are places where animals are raised in high density areas, and are run essentially like factories. Not only are these “agribusinesses” bad for the animals, they are also bad for the environment.
