#ThisWeekI: Humane League Edition

Happy Monday! Today’s #ThisWeekI guest(s) couldn’t decide who wanted to participate the most, so we instead focus on their local nonprofit as a whole instead.

The Humane League is a farm animal welfare organization that advocates for reducing meat consumption for the benefits to individual health, the animals, and the environment.

So what did the Humane League do to inspire change this week?

#ThisWeekI – Humane League Edition:

  • We participated in Meatless Monday, our fav.
  • kept the lights off in the office and relied on natural light instead.
  • Distributed online versions of our literature, including Vegetarian/Vegan Starter Kits, instead of hard copies.

Readers, what have you done this week? What are your goals?
