Go Vegan. Thank you!

I'm Erin, but everyone calls me Red and that's just fine with me.

I'm a certified VLCE and Vegan Nutrition Specialist, public speaker, consultant, problem solver, rabble-rouser, jet-setter, host of the popular vegan podcast Red Radio, and right-hand-woman to vegan Wunderkind Chef Jay Astafa. I also co-founded The Seed in 2012, and continue to organize events across North America.

By night I'm a muay Thai practitioner, runner, Bikram Yogini, and tattoo enthusiast. Brooklyn is home, but I hail from Toronto, Canada, and I'm currently on the road.

Try to keep up.

The foam suffocates 15,000 chickens in 15 minutes. It’s an American invention by Kifco, a manufacturer of irrigation equipment in Illinois. Note the humans in white suits standing in the window like strange aliens in a sci-fi horror movie. This is a “free range” farm, because they are not in individual cages, so the FDA allows the packaging of their dead flesh to be sold as “free range.” happy chickens, humane farming - feel good about your purchase packaging for unconscious consumers of animals.
As we all know, suffocating is painful, but carbon dioxide in high concentrations is also aversive. It converts to carbonic acid, burning mucous membranes. Feeling as though their throats and nasal passages are on fire, birds killed by in-barn gassing gasp, shake their heads, stretch their necks in an attempt to breathe and convulse so violently that they fracture their wings and legs.

How can anyone possibly ignore the terrifying similarities between this and a concentration camp?  Horrific, the things we invent to make our sick habits more convenient.  We should be ashamed of ourselves.
