16-06-10 “Eco-Veganism”

This week I discuss the term “eco-vegan”. I argue that ethics are the primary reason for being vegan, and being vegan solely for the environment is like being against the holocaust because the concentration camps had large carbon footprints. That said, I do think we have a moral obligation to protect the environment and I think vegans should be concerned with environmental issues. But bottom line, there is only one true reason for being vegan: that animals are right holders and not objects, things or property.
