  • She Looked Into My Eyes and Pleaded For Mercy
    The sun had just risen as we took our morning walk, before starting our day in the garden. With rolling hills forming the backdrop to a beautiful summer day, we walked through the quiet countryside of the Big Island of Hawaii, eventually finding ourselves on a cul-de-sac with guavas dangling from the trees. We had just […] (...more)

  • I Knew Something Wasn't Right
    Tim Oseckas, Melbourne, Australia For 25 years I had been living my life like most other people in my culture and society, consuming the flesh from other animals, their milk, their eggs, their honey, wearing their skin, wearing hair taken from their bodies, using products tested on their bodies, and didn't really reflect on the […] (...more)

  • Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me?
    I was 15 years old when my father and I moved in with my auntie, uncle and three cousins. We lived in a nice home rented to us by the owners of a poultry farm in Australia, and the house happened to be built along side the farm itself. My auntie, uncle and even my […] (...more)

  • Pushing Through to Freedom
    Susan Cho, Chicago, USA I will always be vegan: Because of the bear trapped in a tiny cage, continuously drained of the bile so prized by humans. The elephant whose family was shot so she could be used in a circus. The lobster who had been guarding her children when she was trapped and boiled […] (...more)

  • A Hunter's Poem
    … written by Lemuel T. Ward … A hunter shot at a flock of geese That flew within his reach, Two were stopped in their rapid flight And fell on the sandy beach. The male bird lay at the water’s edge And just before he died, He faintly called to his wounded mate And she […] (...more)

  • Why?
    Every human being is a complex, multi-layered conglomeration of genes, experiences, interests, opinions, beliefs, talents, skills, and rules for living that are uniquely different from all others. We differ in so many ways, that if each of us painted a picture of the way we see what we call the “real world,” we would likely […] (...more)

  • Our June Guestbook
    My vegan family! You guys transformed me into a person I am proud to be. I see life differently. I have noticed that I pay attention to the little things. My life in California was different.

  • Buckwheat Breakfasts!
    If you follow any sort of health conscious blogs, you might have noticed the word ‘buckwheat' appearing more and more all over the internet.

  • The Only Way to Exist
    by Alannah Quinn, Brisbane, Australia There was a time when I was unconscious, wrapped up in superficial wants. My mind was fixed on my materialistic needs. I existed purely in a little bubble of simple self, warm in the comfort of my easy ignorance and unable to see the horrific truths of the world through […] (...more)

  • Can Dairy Products Cause Osteoporosis?
    Every June, Men's Health Month is celebrated across the country, and this month some attention has been drawn to an issue that men may need to be more aware of: Osteoporosis.

  • Do Our Bodies Require Animal Products?
    As our awareness continues to grow about the detrimental effects of animal foods on the human body, it has become evident that eating a plant foods diet is beneficial not only for non-human animals and the planet, but for human health as well. For those who might be concerned about meeting all their nutritional requirements […] (...more)

  • To Restore the Promise of Life
    Have you ever looked into the eyes of a sow? She is not the “mere animal” you think you know. She senses and smells your presence. She can see your silhouette cast against the light. She advances, timidly, and seeks your eyes. Her orbs measure you, depose your shield of solid convictions and seek the empathic spark that is dormant within you. (...more)

  • From our Guestbook
    Since our return from Shangri-La in April, we have had the pleasure to get to know a number of beautiful people who have passed through our Hawaii home.

  • To Make Life Truly Just
    I was born into a fog. That hazy, dreary, fog surrounded me. Everyone around me was part of that same dark haze. So normal and right it seemed to be. I never questioned, never pondered, a non-murky life. I thought life was good, and fair, and just. (...more)

  • No Innocent Bystanders
    Every year in New York City, thousands gather for a widely publicized event called “Meatopia,” which is described as “a Texas-sized two day weekend of meat, mirth, and the celebration of animals and the way great chefs prepare them.” Founded and hosted by TIME magazine food columnist Josh Ozersky, Meatopia has been called, “a meat-lover's paradise” (...more)

  • Let Your Conscience Be Your God
    “Of all the creeds be taught or lands be trod, Man’s conscience is the oracle of God.” ~ Lord Byron … Of all the gods who have ruled the minds and hearts of human beings since they first appeared on this earth, however fervently worshipped and highly-acclaimed, none has, thus far, been able to lift humanity […] (...more)

  • 10 Things You Should Know About Animal Testing
    “I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn’t. … The pain which it inflicts upon un-consenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.” ~ Mark Twain The term “animal […] (...more)

  • Local, Free-range, Organic Eggs: What's the Story?
    We recently received an e-mail from a reader asking for more information about laying hens, as explored in our article A Hen’s Relationship With Her Eggs. We turned to our friends at Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary for their expert opinion on the subject, as they live and work alongside many hens who have been rescued from situations where they were (...more)

  • Humanity's Next Step
    I’ve been vegan for 36 years, therefore it is safe to say I will always be vegan. I committed to vegan living before any health benefits of the vegan diet were known. I stopped eating animals at age 12 when I learned ‘meat’ was a dead animal, and became fully vegan immediately upon first reading […] (...more)

  • Gentle World: A Brief History
    When Light and I became vegan in February of 1970, there was one reason and one reason only. It wasn’t because of its health benefits, which were unknown at the time, as was its positive effect on the environment. If factory farms existed, we hadn’t heard of them. Animal rights was not yet an issue, […] (...more)

  • Taking Our Ethical Commitments Seriously
    We often presume, without much thought, that we deserve the circumstances of our lives. But let's consider this presumption. We didn't choose to be born. We didn't choose our parents, race, sex, mental capacity, era in history, or our species. All of these are matters of pure luck, and yet largely define our lifelong experience […] (...more)

  • The Power is Ours
    As we ring out the old, tumultuous year that was 2014, it is tempting to bemoan the current state of the world, and the potential disasters we face at the hands of the powers that seem to be. But the promise of change that comes with ringing in the new demands that we put those thoughts aside, and focus instead on whatever reasons we can find to inspire (...more)

  • The Magic Rabbit
    Yesterday, while staying in my home town of Wellington, New Zealand, I visited an historic house constructed in the 1800s. The ‘Colonial Cottage’ had housed children and grandchildren of the original settlers who built it, until it was bequeathed to the city in the 1960s. As we came down a set of narrow steps and through an old wooden door, (...more)

  • A Better World for Us All
    It's been nearly 14 years since I had my vegan epiphany and vowed to never again partake of or participate in anything offered by the machine of violence that we call the animal industry.

  • A Vegan Guide to Thanksgiving
    As a vegan, it’s hard not to feel heavy-hearted around Thanksgiving time. While the rest of the country looks forward in eager anticipation to a day of feast and celebration, we vegans tend to be seen as a thorn in the side of the collective consciousness. Some of us try and simply avoid thinking about the impending […] (...more)

  • The Foundation of our Higher Selves
    In the heat of the summer of 1966, revolution was in the air.

Like a hurricane, the winds of […] (...more)

  • They Can Count On Me
    This is the first irrefutable truth I discovered in my life; that eating and using animals is, no matter how you look at it, an act of abject cruelty. When we eat or use animals, we are hiring the butcher or dairyman or furrier to kill or abuse the animal for us. We are, in […] (...more)

  • Could Veganism End World Hunger?
    Whenever someone in the animal rights community suggests the concept of complete animal liberation, and therefore an end to the exploitation of animals, a common criticism and counter-argument to this goal is: “Humans can't give up eating animals (or animal products), because then everyone would starve!” Not only is the idea of giving up their (...more)

  • The Best Buckwheat Pancakes You've Ever Had! (Gluten-Free)
    I love pancakes. In fact, they are one of my favorite breakfast foods. So when I went vegan and then gluten free I tried a number of store-bought pancake mixes.

  • 8 Tips for Going Vegan on a Budget
    One of the myths about the vegan lifestyle is that it's too expensive for the average or low-income family. Perhaps this is because many people relate the term ‘vegan' or a plant-based diet to pre-packed vegan spreads, meat alternatives, vegan dairy substitutes and the cost of some fruits and veggies'. While it is important to note that (...more)

  • Optimizing Your Vegan Diet
    The American Dietetic Association and Dietitians of Canada state that ‘properly planned vegan diets are nutritionally adequate for all stages of life, including pregnancy and lactation, and provide health benefits in the treatment and prevention of certain diseases.'

  • Stop Heating Oil. Try the Water Sauté Method!
    You’ve probably heard that heating oils can result in the “production of oxidized compounds and free radicals detrimental to your health.” But there's a simple healthy way to cut out oil whenever you’re stir frying veggies or sautéing greens, and it's called the water sauté method. Instead of using oil to sauté or stir-fry (...more)

    Although I’m not much of a Facebook person, I must admit that there are a few things I love about it.

A while ago, Gentle World volunteer Butterflies Katz did […] (...more)

    “In a vegan world the creatures would be reintegrated within the balance and sanity of nature. A great and historic wrong, whose effect upon the course of evolution must have been stupendous, would be righted.

    “We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.” ~ William Ralph Inge   We humans are a peculiar species.
