The "meat and bone meal" portion of your pet's food, the animal protein sources fed back to pigs, chickens, turkeys and....shhh...a few ruminants as well.

Keep on freepin' on

Before I became vegan, I worked in the office at a rendering plant as a temp receptionist. I filled in for a week. One day, when coming back from lunch, I saw a truck load of what you see in slide #7. Words cannot describe how I felt at that moment.

It's not working for me and I'm at home.



Rendering is processing of meat products, me thinks.

I don't want to subject myself to it. It would be preaching to the choir anyway.

Rendering is the "recycling" of animals. What's leftover after meat processing, euthanized pets, expired meat, road kill, downed animals, etc. are brought to a rendering plant to be "recycled" into other things.

Yeah, slide 7 is just piles of bones. That would be an AMAZING pamphlet for omnivores.



"This is the byproduct of what you put in your mouth."



Really affect people.



Same thing, like diseased animals and carcasses, they should be like "This is what you put in your mouth three times a day. Wonder why you get stomache aches?"



Speaking of which, a little OT, but I used to have IBS so bad that I was in the bathroom 45 minutes every day, per sitting. Now I'm...uh...free falling.

That would be awful to see IRL... seeing it on a computer screen is bad enough.



Was this part of the reason why you went vegan?

It was an eye-opening experience for me, absolutely. I worked there while I was transitioning my diet, and the transition went a lot faster after that. However, candidly speaking, it was moreso part of the reason why I chose Arbonne as a business. When I learned what those rendered animals were being used for (cosmetics, etc) it became very important to me to spread that message.
