TACO BELL: Don’t let animals suffer. Go cage-free!

Taco Bell is one of the top restaurant chains in the US, expanding into the breakfast business early last year. With new menu items like the Waffle and Biscuit Tacos, Taco Bell is staying competitive with the nation’s breakfast retail leader, McDonald’s. But there’s one area the Taco Bell breakfast menu falls short of the competition: cage-free eggs. On factory farms, egg laying hens are kept in tiny, barren battery cages, unable to express natural behaviors like nesting, dust-bathing, and foraging. Each hen has less space than a standard sized sheet of paper. They may never experience natural light or fresh air, and will never leave their cages until they are gathered for slaughter. Just a few weeks ago, Taco Bell’s main competitor, McDonald’s, announced it was going 100% cage-free, and set a timeline to phase out cruel battery cages from its egg supply chain. Burger King and Starbucks have set deadlines for their cage-free pledges, as well as the food service giants Compass Group, Aramark, and Sodexo. Several states have already banned battery cages. Compassion in World Farming has worked with some of the world’s largest food businesses such as McDonald’s, Walmart, and Unilever to create and improve policies for higher animal welfare. Consumer demand for better treatment of farm animals is here, and many companies have already stepped up to the plate. Taco Bell has already acknowledged its customers care about animals, by introducing a new certified vegetarian menu. The time is now to switch to cage-free eggs! Please sign the petition to ask Taco Bell to purchase only cage-free eggs for its restaurants, and set a deadline for the transition. You are a voice for animals!

Why is Taco Bell supporting SeaWorld animal abuse?

As a Penn State student, Taco Bell is located in the heart of our college town.  It’s always my latenight recommendation when looking for a yummy quick option, since it’s open till 3am.  After learning of Taco Bell’s promotion of discounted tickets to SeaWorld, I decided it no longer will be my night time restaurant recommendation. And I’m going to spread the word to as many friends as I can to tell them to reconsider going to Taco Bell, until they stop promoting SeaWorld. What’s wrong with SeaWorld? SeaWorld keeps dolphins and orcas captive in an environment resembling nothing near their natural environment. While in captivity, the lifespan of these intelligent creatures is shortened, and they live in stress to perform tricks that are unnatural to them. The conditions are so dangerous to people that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration says SeaWorld cannot have trainers in the water with orcas anymore. The documentary Blackfish exposed me to SeaWorld’s horrifying practices towards animals. When I learned of the mistreatment of orcas by SeaWorld, I showed the film to friends on campus and wrote letters to SeaWorld board members requesting that they end their cruel practices.  I was saddened of their terrible treatment of animals, and wanted to do everything I could to stop their practices. But I was even more appalled to learn that Taco Bell is promoting SeaWorld. ‘Yo Quiero’ Taco Bell to stop promoting SeaWorld.  I’m changing my late night restaurant recommendation to avoid Taco Bell until they end their ties with SeaWorld.  And I’m going to tell as many Taco Bell customers to spread the word to avoid going there as well. You can help end the captivity of animals at SeaWorld by sharing this with your friends.

Plastic Polluting our Planet

Hello, everybody. My name is Amanda, and I'm 15 years old. I used to use a plastic straw every single day until I learned some facts about them. In the Los Angeles area alone, ten metric tons of plastic fragments—like grocery bags, straws, and soda bottles—are carried into the Pacific Ocean every day. Over the last ten years, we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the previous century. 50 percent of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away. Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. We currently recover only five percent of the plastics we produce. Why is that so bad? Well for starters 46 percent of plastics float (EPA 2006), and it can drift for years before eventually concentrating in the ocean gyres. It takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade. One million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans. The body can absorb plastic chemicals—93 percent of Americans age six or older test positive for BPA (a synthetic chemical) Much more information can be found at Unfortunately, we can't reverse some of the things we've already done to this beautiful planet. What we can do is make some changes. Anything from asking for no straw, bring a reusable bag, use your own utensils (rather than disposable), buying from farmers markets, use a refillable cup/bottle, to making your staples yourself to avoid plastic can make a world (no pun intended) of difference. What I'm asking today, is that you sign this petition. Not that hard, right? :D I will be sending this request to places like Panera, Starbucks, Safeway, Dunkin Donuts, and more. What I'm asking of them is to use less plastic and styrofoam. To incorporate more recycling cans into their locations. To only give plastic bags to those who ask for them. To use paper straws rather than plastic. To find an alternative to Styrofoam takeout containers. To stop putting things in plastic that doesn't need to be. Have you ever seen the movie Wall-e? It stars a cute little robot who picks up trash. Remember how awful Earth looked? The whole time I was watching that movie I just wanted to go hug a tree (I didn't actually hug a tree). I'm not trying to make anyone feel bad about their choices, I'm just trying to inform! Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope we can work together to make 2018 a much friendlier place (for the people and the planet). <3

Bring back Ballroom Throwbacks Tv "Brtbtv" Youtube Channel

Since before Paris is Burning, the LBGTQ ballroom community has always taking pride in keeping records of our accomplishments. After our written historians, It was Betamax, then VHS, CD’s and now Youtube! Ceasar Will has been our historian for over 20 years now. He has been very influential in our community by not just keeping the history of LBGTQ ballroom culture, but promoting HIV awareness, providing community support and suicide prevention.The problem is that Youtube, one of Alphabet INC subsidiaries companies has stolen over 30 years of accomplishments. This has created frustration, anger, fear and confusion amongst our LBGTQ community. Their community guidelines and terms of service are not realistic to today’s culture, not just LBGTQ culture, but everyone in the world. What happen to freedom of speech, freedom of expression! Ryan Murphy’s show on FX network “POSE” has given everyone in the world an eye opener on ballroom culture , or Viceland network show “My House” which was influenced directly and/or indirectly by going to review our history from Ballroom Throwbacks Tv "Brtbtv". This was the only channel/place worldwide that can give a direct clip from each era of our community, including J Jennings 1990’s Paris is Burning or 1960’s Crystal Labeija! Last night MTV Awards mentioned historical members of our community. When the world went to google those names, where do you think it would have taken them to watch a clip? The solution?  Allow the LBGTQ community 7-14 days to retrieve our history. Allow us to make preparations to retrieve history dating back to 1960’s. Allow each person that was recorded to collect their history, so they may be able to show the next generation. Allow us to gain back what was taken.
