    The Pig Houing System Needs A Change

    The Pig Houing System Needs A Change
    Approximately 100 million pigs are raised and slaughtered in the U.S. every year. The type of housing system used throughout the U.S. to encourage this continuous grueling cycle of breeding sows is gestation crate to farrowing crate to gestation crate. It was developed to allow for economically efficient pork production, requiring less labor and feed than other housing arrangements. Scientific evidence suggests that intensive confinement causes physical disorders in sows. Unnatural flooring and lack of exercise leads to obesity and crippling leg disorders. Further, the air in pig factories is laden with dust, dander, and noxious gases, which are produced as the pigs urine and feces builds up inside the warehouses, causing respiratory difficulties and the spreading of infectious diseases amongst the pigs.Scientific evidence also suggests that intensive confinement causes psychological disorders in sows. The lack of environmental stimulation in the stall environment and the sows' inability to perform normal behaviors including rooting, foraging, nest-building, grazing, wallowing, or practicing social behaviors, leads to psychological disorders including chronic stress, depression, aggression, and abnormal and neurotic coping behaviors, such as bar biting and sham chewing (chewing nothing). Please sign this petition to help raise awareness that our housing system ideals need to be changed and there are other options available. Help make a difference.

    You Can Help Save One  of Our Last Natural Treasures
    The proposed Pebble Mine in Alaska's Bristol Bay wilderness may be the worst corporate assault on America's natural heritage that no one’s ever heard of. Bristol Bay's untamed wilderness is home to the greatest wild sockeye salmon runs on the planet, an astounding diversity of wildlife, and a way of life for Native communities that have thrived there for thousands of years. But a Canadian mining company wants to carve a gargantuan open-pit, gold and copper mine out of the heart of this American Eden. The Environmental Protection Agency has confirmed that the Pebble Mine carries catastrophic risk for Bristol Bay. But despite the warnings, Canada's Northern Dynasty Minerals is recklessly pushing ahead with this $6 billion mega-mine. Send an urgent message to Northern Dynastys President telling him to abandon plans for the disastrous Pebble Mine. Please Help Us Stop the Plundering of the Planet!

    The .ECO New Deal
    It couldn\'t be more obvious that the U.S. needs major environmental and economic reform — moderate incremental compromise on climate change will NOT do the trick. The US lawmakers need to call for a .ECO Revolution! A cooperation with all hands on deck made to succeed. Of all the things the government spends money on, a massive plan that puts people to work revitalizing the critical infrastructure, reducing dependency upon carbon sourced fuels, create jobs which cannot be out sourced, keeps the economy thriving, and puts us on the path toward 100% resiliency seems like one of the most worthwhile expenditures. While the “Green New Deal” is picking up steam, it needs support as a first step. The plan is intensely popular with Americans — it has 81 percent support from people after they\'ve heard about it. This is the kind of platform that has the power to save humankind from a dying planet. And if that\'s not enough, this is the kind of platform which can restore citizens believe in governmental institutions. It is a path to demonstrate the greatness of American know how and determination to do the “right thing” in the face of adversity. We are looking for brave and conscientious leaders who care and want to create a clean and prosperous future for all. Join US in promoting this for All ~ Because You Care!

    Help Raise Awareness For Chicken Living Conditions
    Virtually all chickens raised for their flesh (or “broiler chickens” as they are referred to by the meat industry), spend their lives crammed into massive, windowless sheds that typically hold as many as 40,000 birds each. The intense confinement and extreme crowding on factory farms also results in unimaginable filth and disease. Please sign this petition to increase awareness about these deplorable conditions we force these animals to endure.

    Help raise plastic disposal awareness
    Plastic consumption has grown at a tremendous rate worldwide. They play an increasingly important role in most aspects of modern life and as a community, we are becoming more dependent on the benefits they provide. This has caused the disposal of plastic waste to emerge as an important environmental challenge due to its non-degradable nature. Normal plastics will not decompose biologically and the amount of plastic waste in our surroundings is steadily increasing.. With your support, we can raise awareness about this rapidly growing problem and find a way to reduce our plastic waste footprint.

    Pangolins need to be Protected before Extinction!

    Pangolins need to be Protected before Extinction!
    Pangolins are unique mammals that have an extremely important ecological role. Just one of these scale-covered anteaters consumes up to 70 million insects per year, providing millions of dollars of free pest control. Pangolins also improve soil quality as a result of their burrowing behavior. Tragically, these incredible animals are being driven to extinction by the illegal wildlife trade. \\r\\n\\r\\nPlease sign and share this petition urging the governments of China, Vietnam, and Indonesia to develop comprehensive and effective strategies to end the illegal trafficking of pangolins within their borders. International efforts to save the pangolin from extinction are having limited effectiveness - full participation of these governments is essential to protecting this amazing animal. Please demand that they take action before it is too late!
