Jane Goodall, 77, recently opened up about a great many aspects of her life including how she feels about aging, what she still wants to accomplish and her vegetarian diet.

The activist said about her meat free diet, “I read Peter Singer’s book about animal liberation. After reading that book, my next meal came along, and I saw meat on the plate. I looked down and said this symbolizes fear, pain and death, and I don’t want that in my body. I stopped just like that, boom. I do a lot of things boom.”

In the interview she goes on to talk about her worldwide humane education organization Roots and Shoots. Goodall said about the goal of the non-profit, “I am encouraging people to think about the consequences of the choices they make: What did you buy? Where did it come from? What’s it made of? Does it come from very far away? Was it involved in child slave labor in India or China? Did it involve horrible cruelty to animals, like all of the meat we buy from farm animals? They face torture.”

As for her own eco decisions, Goodall knows that the small actions count. She makes sure that that her computer and lights are shut off so she doesn’t waste energy. She said, “All of these seemingly little things, when millions of people do them, that starts a mountain of change.”
