Produced by Sustainable Table and Free Range Studios, the animated movie The Meatrix spoofs The Matrix while illustrating the problems with industrial agriculture and today’s meat supply. The Meatrix uses pop culture and entertainment to educate viewers about the food they eat and where it comes from. The film features three superhero farm animals including Leo, the young pig who wonders if he is “the One,” Chickity, the feathered family farm defender, and Moopheus, the trench-coat-clad cow with a passion for green pastures. Join the group as they delve into the reality of animal cruelty, antibiotic overuse, massive pollution and destroyed communities.
I can't say or support this website enough. These videos are a simple and perfect illustration of what really goes on in our meat and dairy industries.
The point and purpose of this website is not to stop eating meat and dairy; but to support local, organic farmers that have respect for both their animals and nature. Their practices work together with the animals they raise and the environment in which they live and graze on.
Animals do not need to be treated the way they are in factory and dairy farms. Organic, sustainable farms have shown that if the animals are treated with love and the environment is respected, they can produce nutrient dense, high quality meat and dairy products. We do not have to eat meat or dairy everyday to sustain health. We as society, consume too much! I'm sure many of you are cursing me out right now and saying that it's too expensive to buy local, organic meat and dairy everyday. I would agree, I can't imagine buying organic grass fed meat and organic cheese everyday; I would be broke ass. That is why I suggest cutting your meat consumption down and eating more plants and whole grains. When you do decide to eat meat, buy local and organic and eat less of it in one sitting.
