Golden hour T👅T! 🌅 Running on the beach makes me thirsty - it's tempting to drink the sea water, but boy is that a salty mistake! 🌊 Unfortunately, a lot of freshwater is contaminated by salts and other pollutants from industry and agriculture. The @wsj just published a scathing critique of industrial agriculture's huge impact on drinking water supplies. The concentration of crop-growing and livestock has increased productivity at the cost of contaminating drinking water doesn't millions. 💦☣️ One in seven Americans who rely on well water are at risk of drinking water contaminated with nitrates (from fertilizer and livestock waste) above safe levels, and over 500 public water systems in more urban areas are affected now too. 🤢 Stuffing stockyards full of cows, pigs, and chickens is not only morally troubling, it's making people and wildlife sick. Regulating pollution from modern ag and animal production, and improving animal well being, is sadly low on the political agenda. 🐷🐮💔 What can you do? 🤔 1) Write to your political representatives, call their offices, and vote 2) Vote with your dollars: buy from local farms, talk to your farmers, support sustainable practices 3) Eat a sustainable, plant-based diet! I can't tell you how much amazing vegan food is out there these days! Check out @elavegan and @thevegan8 just to start! 4) Talk about it! Discuss this issue with friends, family, and colleagues. The more we openly share about and understand these issues, the more people who will demand change and change their own behavior as a result. 👊 What concerns do YOU have about drinking water contamination? What ideas do you have to work towards safer water and food? 🌍 . . #bcupsays#scicomm#ecodog#agriculture#pollution#waterquality#conservation#vegandog#plantbased#organic#dogsofig#tot#tongueouttuesday#dogmodel#beachdog#dogsweater#animalrights#chihuahuafanatics#saltydog#santabarbara#dogsonadventures#thegreatoutdogs#dailydog#dailybarker#bestwoof
Pima ran softly towards me with wind in her floof. As I took a picture and opened my arms wide and called her to run into my arms for an epic hug, she stopped a few feet in front, layed down and ate some snow.
Welcome to the Tuck&Oak food review show, with your taste testers... Tucker and Oakley! . Which pup are you more like? 🙈 .
