Ways to #LiveKinder for farm animals

What if we started living a little kinder? 

This year we are encouraging everyone to #LiveKinder and tread a little lighter – especially when it comes to our relationship with animals. With a few small changes we can all #LiveKinder - let’s be kinder in what we eat, kinder in what we do and kinder in how we treat animals and the planet. Every little action can have a huge impact, and collectively we have the power to protect animals and the planet. Whilst we all are still living with the fallout of COVID-19 we are becoming increasingly aware of the link between the way we treat animals and the planet, and the subsequent emergence of global pandemics. Over 75% of pandemics have come from animals, including wildlife and farmed animals. The message is clear - we need to change the way we live. Are you prepared to #LiveKinder?

These changes do not need to be big to make a significant impact. Even a few small steps in the right direction can, and will, make a big difference.

#LiveKinder for FARM ANIMALS 

Keep your eyes open

Make sure that any domesticated animals, like mules or horses, that are ridden, are in good physical condition, well cared for, and provided with water and shade.

Go to the farm

There are a few wonderful farm animal sanctuaries in South Africa such as the Greyton Farm Animal Sanctuary outside Greyton, Farm Sanctuary SA in Franschhoek (both in the Western Cape) and Ashers Farm Sanctuary in Gauteng. They are all committed to rehabilitating and housing rescued animals from the factory farming industry in South Africa. Visit them, encourage children to visit them, and open your heart and your mind, to these wonderful animals that so many of us see only as food.

Try something new

Have a look at our animal-friendly recipes and encourage your family and friends to try some as well. See our fun, easy and delicious animal-friendly recipes on our website. If you are a meat eater, try going vegetarian for one month. If you are a vegetarian, try 2 vegan recipes a week. The less farmed animals and animal products you eat, the kinder you are to animals, the planet as well as your health.

Educate yourself

Each year, billions of farm animals die after a short life in a terrible environment. Educate yourself, and your friends and family, on the reality behind the animals we traditionally farm for food and how our food choices have a direct impact on the lives of animals, the earth and your health.
