Vegan Butcher Shop to Open in Minneapolis
January 8, 2016
Times sure are changing! If you live in the Minneapolis area, you'll soon be able to purchase your 'meat' from the United States' first vegan butcher shop, "The Herbivorous Butcher."
Aubry and Kale Walch's store is scheduled to open January 23rd and will offer their very own vegan meats including Mexican Chorizo, Cajun Jerky, and Huli Huli Hawaiian Ribs, as well as cheeses and butter. But if you’re not in Minnesota, don’t worry! You can make an online order of selected meats in any combination of 4-6 items ranging from their Porterhouse Steak to Sriracha Brats. Their products not only look delicious, but they are also filled with optimum protein and B-vitamins.
This is an amazing achievement that will bring awareness to the importance for meat alternatives. According to their website, global demand for meat has tripled which has caused an unsustainable increase in greenhouse gas emission, water pollution, and deforestation. It's taking a dramatic toll on our planet! By reducing the consumption of animal products, billions of animals’ lives would be saved and our environment would be in better shape.
