Learn how living with compassion can change this world…
Aside from advocating for animal welfare, we strive to teach adults and children how important compassion and empathy are as they are foundational skills to allowing us to understand complex emotions, relating to one another building healthy relationships between one another, even between different species. It is so important that even Stanford Medicine has developed The Centre For Compassion and Altruism Research and Education. Developing these skills has been shown to help improve feelings of positivity, become more aware, embody kindness, care and empathy for one another without prejudice of species and it can even spur individuals to take action in causes they feel passionate about.
Compassion can Help the Environment
Did you know that the greatest emissions from greenhouse gases come from animal agricultural farming? Our climate and environment are being destroyed by the very acts of human negligence, greed for meat, and insatiable need for more material goods. At this rate, it is estimated that our oceans will be devoid of wild fish by 2050, and climate will change dramatically for the worse. Cowspiracy, an award-winning documentary presented groundbreaking research of how our drastic increase in consumption of meat has contributed greatly to:
- the contamination of our natural waters
- creating dead zones in bodies of water from run-off pollution
- the massive emission of greenhouse gases
- the leading cause of deforestation
- the cause of water shortage as agricultural farming contributes to the highest use of fresh water compared to any other industry
Did you Know?
- Livestock and their byproducts account for at least 51% of all worldwide greenhouse gas emissions
- Livestock is responsible for 65% of all emissions of nitrous oxide – a greenhouse gas 296X more destructive than carbon dioxide and stays in the atmosphere for 150 years
- One hamburger requires 660 gallons of water to produce – the equivalent of 2 months worth of showers…..and the list goes on.
Animal agricultural farming is the #1 most detrimental industry to our environment.

Compassion Can Help Animals and People
When you become more aware of your surroundings, and you start developing an empathy for others, you will start to realize the amount of suffering in this world. You will start to see that everything we own, use and eat today, came at some cost to the planet and has caused some form of suffering. However, many of us are so far-removed from where our daily goods come from, we take it foregranted and we forget where they truly came from. One of the greatest sufferings in this world, comes from the meat industry. Every year, 56 billion farmed animals are killed by humans. 56 billion. That does not include animals killed in other industries led by humans including the fashion and fur industry, human experimentation, sport hunting, and pet abuse and abandonment. That is 8X more than the ENTIRE human population of animal deaths just in one single industry. As a single species, humans have decimated every single species on this earth and we are seeing wildlife extinction caused by unnatural causes at a greater rate than we have ever seen.
Although we cannot change the action of others, we can start with ourselves. By knowing our contribution to all the suffering in this world, we can begin making a difference by adopting a plant-based diet, shopping only cruelty-free products that are not tested on animals or have animal products, not visiting any zoos, circuses, animal rides and petting zoos where animals are used for profit.
By simply changing our daily habits, we can influence many industries as consumers dictate where profits go. Industries will have no choice to change their ways by adopting more compassionate policies. Start helping animals today by learning how to live with compassion.
