Major UK retailer Selfridges recently pledged to stop selling the so called “delicacy” forever. Foie gras, for those of you who don’t know, (which I’m pretty sure is most of you, because foie gras is disgusting and eaten mostly by older, snooty people!) is made from the engorged livers of ducks and geese. Eat someone’s fatty liver? … I don’t think so.
Tubes are shoved down the birds’ throats several times a day to force-feed them grain and fat, which often punctures their throats, resulting in tissue damage and internal bleeding. Watch as Kate describes the horrors behind foie gras.
Please share this video with everyone you know and spread the word that there isn’t anything chic about foie gras.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
