Random news of the day

OK, obviously I’m a little late with this. The Obamas are planting an organic vegetable garden at the White House! Yay! Hopefully this will influence Americans to do the same, and we can get a little “Victory Garden” action going.

Project Runway’s Kenley Collins thinks animals are weapons. She reportedly threw a cat at her fiance.

Boca, the makers of numerous vegetarian (and some vegan) foods, has pledged to go egg-free by the end of this year. This is AMAZING news! When I first heard about it, I assumed it was a typo and that they were just going to use cage-free eggs. But nope – completely EGG FREE! Which will obviously lead to more vegan products. Now it’s time for MorningStar and other companies to do the same.

Of course, we know it’s not, but you know how hard it can be to change someone’s mind. Anyway, here’s an interview with Jonathan Safran Foer about his experiences traveling abroad – and guess what, it was only bad in the Ukraine.

Quality Egg of New England doesn’t care much for the quality of life experienced by its imprisoned hens, as Mercy For Animals discovers. Surprised? Naw, I didn’t think so.
