Do you ever think about the environmental impact of your food? Is there anything you won't eat because of the effects on the environment?
The only things I won't eat right now is eel, due to it being endangered, and farmed tiger prawns.
I also try to eat organic bananas because I've heard the pesticides they use for the regular ones are particular horrible for the workers. I think eating organic because you're afraid of eating miniscule amounts of pesticides yourself is pretty silly though.
I protest eating oysters because they're too important to the chesapeake bay to be eaten. I like how flying dog brewery in Maryland makes an oyster stout that literally kill oysters and donates a portion of the profits to the oyster recovery partnership. Textbook definition of hypocrite. So I also protest that beer
beef and pork and dairy and leather. Also try to eat family's food before it expires. A lot of food comes in excessive packaging which is frustrating. We produce a lot of garbage.
I paid much more attention to this when I lived alone. I am disabled and do not buy food anymore... am the only one in the house who gives a shit so I live and let live. The high price of beef keeps them from buying it though.
Word, someone else who cares about the oysters in the Chesapeake. Oysters are tasty, but the Bay is a mess and the last thing I want to do is be a part of fucking it up even further.
Fuck no. I'd eat any endangered species or resurrected extinct one for that matter.
I plan to hunt polar bear and turn it into chili, a rug, and a jacket someday.
There are also restaurants along the chesapeake in maryland that offer "oyster dining at ease". Which promise to replenish every oyster you eat with one at a farm. Dictionary definition of working backwards.
