We think that sustainability is about more than just changing your light bulbs, recycling, or even treating your fellow humans better. We'd like to see it include a more compassionate approach to how we deal with all living creatures.
There are abandoned and stray pets all over the place. So many that 250,000 pounds of animals in LA County are euthanized each month. Thats 3,000,000 pounds per year in LA County alone! And life's not that much fun for the ones who get away either - stray pets suffer horrible diseases, they get into fights, and they often go hungry. That's why Larry's Beans works hard to look after the stray cats that hang around our warehouse. You've got to stay friendly with the neighbors after all! And don't forget, it's not just pets that get a rough deal. Many farm animals are treated horribly too. By buying organic, free-range and humanely reared animal products, you can help ensure a better life for our non-human buddies.
