The second annual Compassion Week is quickly approaching. This year the week includes an arts night, a Compassion Marketplace, the launch of the annual Compassion Award, and a week-long series of high school talks about animals.
Before that kicks off, check out a screening of the new documentary Forks Over Knives or the inspirational Peaceable Kingdom. These films will make you want to take action, like activists of Toronto Pig Save, featured as our animal advocates this month for their work exposing the cruelties that exist in Toronto’s slaughterhouses.
If this motivates you to eat cruelty-free, check out the healthy powers of nutritional yeast and put it to use with a vegan version of pasta with bechamel sauce and fresh herbs, or try one of the many new veg-friendly businesses we found out about in the directory updates!
