50 Million Reasons to NOT Eat Turkey this Thanksgiving

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!

Share this graphic with your Facebook friends and Tumblr followers, it even makes a great Facebook banner photo! Then share your favorite animal free recipes, or you can even send a delicious animal-free baked good to inspire change through deliciousness.

It's really unnecessary and just a bad habit. You can still have a family gathering with mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, turnip/carrots and pumpkin pie, all cruelty free.
