@patricksudlow I agree that large-scale boycotts are good. My approach is to only buy things when I need to, and pick the most local/ethical supplier available when I do. To clarify though, I don't think anbody is blaming cows, rather those financially incentivizing cow *farming*.
the "stop blaming cows" traces to this quote: "some forms of ranching – on well-maintained pastures with rotational grazing and the limited of fertilizers – can sequester carbon and help us face climate change." The author seems biased considering the statement "The problem with eliminating meat from your diet is that you do not know if you are affecting the large-scale Brazilian rancher or the struggling family farmer who lives down the road."
I agree with Anthony Pahnke's main point: we need to #boycott beef from #walmart, #mcdonalds, #mars, #safeway, #nestle, #hormel, #wendys, #jacklinks, #subway, #burgerKing, #conagraFoods, #kroger, #pizzaHut - which is well supported:
the ethical.org.au site times out.
It can work sometimes but it takes some time and may timeout. Seems to make the site useless for its intended purpose, being to check brands conveniently while #shopping. :)
The app could benefit by being #FOSS and keeping the database on the user's device.
Databases could be DLed based on country of interest, like #osmand maps.
