Arrrg! Me mateys.
http://www.allamericanvegan.com/tofu-shouldnt-hurt/It had all makings of a perfect outing for a vegan, homeschooling family like ours. The trip to the local tofu factory promised to be fun and educational, with plenty of photo-ops and information that would make for great blogging when it was over. But it wasnt fun. And while it was an education and gave us plenty to write about, what we learned and what we must now report are not what we had in mind when we recently plunked down $40 for an hour long tour of Hodo Soy Beanery in West Oakland.
The first things to greet us when we walked through the doors of Hodo Soy Beanery were some of the cruelest devices in use by humans in their effort to kill the non-humans who share our planet: sticky glue traps. These contraptions are designed to ensnare their terrified victims and then kill them slowly.
