We took the month of January off and wow did a lot of lawsuit related things happen during the time! We’ll go over what we missed, including ethical veganism being named a protected characteristic in the UK and Ben and Jerry’s removing the “happy cow” label from their packaging. Plus we’ll talk about the “meat patch” and rant about media literacy after the news that Starbucks is supposedly going dairy free. All that and much much more!
