Oh how I love thee? Let me count the ways. Natalie Portman (my favorite) was given the Movie for Humanity Award at the Venice Film Festival this week for her philanthropic endeavors. 

In the past Natalie has spoken out against poverty, helped bring attention to the problems in Rwanda and encouraged American citizens to get out and vote.  She’s also a proud vegetarian (sometimes vegan) who even has her own cruelty-free shoe line

Along with the award Portman received a $50,000 check, which she donated to the Tacare Girl’s Scholarship Program of the Jane Goodall Institute — a non-profit organization involved in education and wildlife research in Tanzania. Accepting the award, she said: “The Jane Goodall foundation does incredible work in Tanzania, an area which is very environmentally affected. I really appreciate this award.”

So from all of us here at Ecorazzi, a big Hip Hip Hooray for one of our favorite green gals.

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
