Only buy what you actually need. In a consumer culture, it’s easy to fall into overbuying habits. If you only purchase what’s necessary, you’ll not only be going green but saving green as well.

Many grocery stores have a natural- or health-food section, where many vegan items can be found. Some products are located in other areas, though. For example, veggie meat slices and tofu are often kept near the produce and some frozen products are kept near breakfast foods. Vegan margarine and soy milk are frequently kept right next to the dairy varieties. Be sure to ask a store clerk for help if you can't find what you are looking for.
As we mature spiritually and begin to question the routine violence required by meals of meat, dairy, and eggs, we naturally begin to question the teachings and example of people and traditions we have looked to for spiritual and ethical guidance, and this can be challenging, at best. Also, even if we reject religious teachers and traditions that enable or encourage animal exploitation, we will often find ourselves with people who use the words and example of these teachers and traditions to rationalize purchasing animal-sourced foods and products. This can be enormously upsetting. Spiritual teachings are supposed to help make us more compassionate and aware, not provide cover for cruelty and denial!

Abortion indisputably ends a human life. But this loss is usually set against the woman’s need to have an abortion in order to freely direct her own life. It is a particular cruelty to present abortion as something women want, something they demand, they find liberating. Because nobody wants this. The procedure itself is painful, humiliating, expensive — no woman “wants” to go through it. But once it’s available, it appears to be the logical, reasonable choice. All the complexities can be shoved down that funnel. Yes, abortion solves all the problems but it solves them inside the woman’s body. And she is expected to keep that pain inside for a lifetime, and be grateful for the gift of abortion.
The Common App is the most seamless way to manage the application process for students, counselors, and recommenders. Track submitted documents and outstanding tasks.
I really have trouble taking too seriously ANY spiritual teacher , guru, or god who consumes ANY animal products. I don\'t care who they are or what they\'ve claimed to have done. They may have wisdom and guidance to impart, but they are very disconnected and cut off from their potential.
Going green is a concept that includes doing what is necessary to save the environment. This may involve simple tasks such as using reusable bags when shopping to avoid wasting paper and plastic bags. There are products you can buy that help reduce your carbon footprint on the environment. Recycling and reusing items for other purposes are other prime examples. Over the years going green has helped countries save money and resources. Yet, there is still an issue with getting more people to do it.
