Winners and Losers in the Plant-Based World. One Calf Is a Very Lucky Girl
Winner: She's One Lucky Cow.
Loser: The California Dairy Association
Winner: Panera Bread Takes the Lead on Losing the Vegan Milk Surcharge.
Winner: The Dalai Lama
The spiritual leader is always a winner, for advocating peace and respect for all beings, but this week he came out and told his followers: We Have an ‘Urgent Responsibility’ to Protect Wildlife and the Planet.
Winner: Harrison Ford, Former Meat Eater
The Beet covered the story the minute Ellen's show aired in England, featuring one Han Solo discussing his former habit of eating meat and dairy. Okay so he is promoting a movie, but his genuine fatigue toward eating meat was palpable and his commitment to environmental causes real. He spoke at the UN last year about the Amazon saying, if a room in your house was on fire, you would say "my house is on fire," not just the room.
Spending time filming all those movies in far off lands has had an effect on the Indiana Jones star and we are happy to see how fit, energetic and youthful the 77-year-old looks. And by his own admission, he rarely hits the gym. Has to be the diet, or the genes, or the fun he's still having. If this doesn't get Indie fans on board we don't know what will.
Love this winner, longtime.
