50 Million Reasons to NOT Eat Turkey this Thanksgiving

Turkeys are more than a holiday centerpiece, and a holiday should not revolve around the mass killing of one creature. At One Green Planet, we like to think we can move past that and create more humane traditions that honor animals and our earth. Like all animals, turkeys are individuals with their own wants and needs. Try out a new Thanksgiving tradition and take turkey off the table.

Over the years, my own Thanksgiving celebration with friends and family has become more and more veg-friendly and it’s great to see the little changes each year. If you’re a new vegetarian, Thanksgiving can be a time when others decide to question you about your decision, since it’s new and you will be eating differently. Just remember, Thanksgiving can be a hard time as an animal lover, but choose kind words to explain your decision and show how amazing a veg Thanksgiving can be!
