line of sneakers are vegan and made from recycled trash. – Our job is also to help
protect the future of sport. – [Announcer] The American
sportswear company created four futuristic
designs for the space hippie, with environmental sustainability in mind. – What if waste becomes
our future feedstock? What if it is actually
the material that we use? – [Man] And that’s really where the idea of Space Hippie was born out of. – Anything that is
headed for the landfill, if we intercept that, we
bring it back into the shoes that’s kind of like the
lowest carbon footprint way we can do things. – [Announcer] According to Nike, the vegan sneakers have the
lowest carbon footprint scores out of all of it’s shoes. “Space Hippie product
presents itself as an artifact “from the future. “It’s avant garde, it’s
rebelliously optimistic. “Space Hippies is also an idea. “It is about figuring out how to make most “with the least material, the least energy “and the least carbon,” said John Hoke, Nike’s
Chief Designer Officer. – Our job is to leave
the world a better place. – [Announcer] The Space
Hippies’ uppers are made from a material called FlyKnit. – It’s 25% old t-shirts. This is just post-consumer t-shirts and then 25% is textile
scraps from the factory floor. And then the last 50% is
recycled plastic bottles. – [Announcer] The sole
incorporates recycled rubber and recycled foam materials. Nike’s Move to Zero initiative details the company’s goal of both zero carbon and zero waste. Many other sneakers, including Nike Air, now use recycled materials
and renewable energy. And according to the company, the Space Hippie line represents a new benchmark in
responsible shoe design. (calm music)
Coming up, the FDA will now send retired lab animals to sanctuaries. Lena Dunham says Joaquin
Phoenix’s Oscar speech made her go vegan. “The Girl’s” creator shared a video of “The Joker” star’s Oscars
acceptance speech on Twitter. Phoenix won the Academy
Award for Best Actor. His acceptance speech was
about human oppression and the cruelty of the dairy industry. – I think that we’ve
become very disconnected from the natural world. We feel entitled to
artificially inseminate a cow, and when she gives
birth, we steal her baby, even though her cries of
anguish are unmistakable. And then we take her milk, that’s intended for a calf, and we put it in our
coffee and our cereal. – [Announcer] His words
struck a cord with Dunham. She tweeted alongside the video, “Welp, it finally happened. “I do believe Joaquin made me vegan.” Vegan, six-time Formula One
champion, Lewis Hamilton, shared a clip of Phoenix’s
Oscars acceptance speech on Instagram, saying
that he’s leading the way for the world. The FDA will allow the
adoption and transfer of healthy, retired lab
animals to sanctuaries. The policy change follows campaigning from the White Coat Waste Project, and over 1.2 million animals advocates. Advocates called on the
FDA and other agencies to create animal retirement policies. WCW said that government
spending on animal testing, more than $15 billion, is a waste of both animal lives and public funds. Justin Goodman, Vice President of WCW, acknowledged the significance
of the FDA’s decision. “We applaud the FDA for creating a policy “allowing primates, dogs
and the other animals “purchased with tax dollars “to be retired from federal
labs when testing ends. “Taxpayers bought these animals “and they want Uncle
Sam to give them back.” According to WCW, despite the trauma lab animals experience, they can still thrive
during their retirement. Several government agencies, including the Environmental
Protection Agency, and the United States
Department of Agriculture, have not set policies for
retiring animals after testing. Research by animal rights organization, Cruelty Free International, indicates that at least 115
million animals per year are used in experiments worldwide. – Using animals to test cosmetics is still allowed in most of the world, which means that thousands of animals can continue to die for
the sake of a new shampoo. Which is ridiculous. – [Announcer] Aysha Akhtar, a neurologist and author of the 2012 book “Animals and Public Health”, explained in the journal, “Cambridge Quarterly
of Healthcare Ethics”, “The unreliability of applying
animal experimental results “to human biology and diseases
is increasingly recognized.” – We have found that most of the drugs that are found safe and
effective in animals are later found to be unsafe,
or ineffective, in humans. That is a high, high failure
rate in drug development. – [Announcer] Wersut Seguni’s Indonesian Traveling Dolphin Circus, known as the world’s
cruelest dolphin circus, will no longer travel with
it’s captive dolphins. According to the Dolphin Project, the Indonesian Ministry of
Environment and Forestry chose not to renew it’s permits after a decade of campaigning
by animal activists. As of February 5th, the
dolphin training company, Wersut Seguni Indonesia, closed it’s traveling circus tents. “This is a historic day
for all of us involved,” said Dolphin Project’s
Indonesian campaign manager, Femke Den Hass. “Since 2009, when the traveling
dolphin show first started, “we have worked tirelessly.” Cara Sands, a Dolphin
Project representative, described the cruel conditions experienced by traveling dolphins. “The dolphins recruited
for the traveling circuses “were transported from village to village, “from city to city, for
a period of four weeks “at each location.” Dolphin Project’s Indonesian
team documented their travels and obtained footage of dolphins spending up to three days
in a coffin-like boxes. According to Dolphin Project, dolphins performed in restrictive and over-chlorinated pools. Captive dolphins performed
up to five times per day, including jumping through the hoops and dancing to loud music. Despite the restrictions placed upon the Indonesian Traveling Dolphin Circus, Wersut Seguni Indonesia will continue with dolphin performances
at a permanent facility located in Central Java. The facility contains 20
to 30 captive dolphins. Coming up, Trader Joe’s is
launching vegan milk chocolate. Musclefood is selling make
your own vegan bacon kits, The Nottingham-based retail seller, which specializes in sports nutrition and premium lean meats, has branched out into Vegan products. It’s new Crispy Facon kit
features peeled parsnip slices. It also includes a
marinade of liquid smoke, yeast, garlic, soy sauce and black pepper. The brand says to simply soak the slices in the sauce in the fridge
for about 30 minutes, and then place them in the
over for about 15 minutes. The result is crispy, vegan,
bacon-like parsnip strips. It has the same taste and
flavor as regular bacon, but without the health consequences. It can sometimes be hard for Brits who want to cut down their
intake of animal products to get over the hurdle of giving up foods they’ve grown fond of over the years. “A comforting Bacon
Butty or a filling fry up “are staples of our national
cuisine,” said Amy Kershaw, the Head of Product
Innovation at Musclefood. Tim Hortons is launching vegan almond milk at all it’s Canadian locations. After reporting falling sales and profits in the most recent quarter, the chain is going back to basics. “At Tim Hortons, our
performance did not reflect “the incredible power of our brand,” said Restaurants Brands International, Tim Hortons parent company. “It is clear that we
have a large opportunity “to refocus on our founding values, “and what has made us famous
with our guests over the years, “which will be the basis
of our plan into 2020.” RBI plans to improve
Tim Hortons’ performance by improving and modernizing
it’s core categories. This includes improving it’s coffee and adding an almond milk option. Many Tim Hortons customers
have been waiting for a vegan milk option for years. And the brand confirmed via Twitter that almond milk is coming this spring. (light music) Vegan egg are now being served in college, health care facilities,
and corporate cafeterias throughout the US. California-based food tech brand, JUST, had entered a partnership with global food service corperation, Sodexo. The move is part of Sedexo’s
Better Tomorrow 2525 strategy to slash it’s carbon
emissions by 34% by 2035. Made from mung bean protein, a cholesterol-free JUST egg uses 98% less water, 83% less land, and emits 93% less carbon dioxide than conventional eggs. (exciting music) – I eat eggs everyday
and I didn’t even notice. – Yeah.
– Wow. – Wow, it tastes like real- Yeah, it tastes and feels like real egg – [Announcer] The
plant-based egg is versatile. It can be used to make scrambles, omelets, quiches and
other egg-based dishes. Since launching it’s liquid vegan egg to retail and food services
distribution last year, JUST has sold the equivalent
of 20 million eggs. “We’re thrilled to become a
preferred supplier to Sodexo, “which serves over 75
million consumers each day. “Sodexo’s sustainable
menu innovation initiative “has resulted in hundreds
of new plant-based recipes, “and we’re excited to see a range “of delicious JUST egg dishes “arrive at client’s facilities
in the months ahead,” said Josh Tetrick,
co-founder and CEO of JUST. Trader Joe’s is developing
vegan milk chocolate bars. The grocery chain revealed the news on episode 21 of it’s podcast,
“Inside Trader Joe’s”, hosted by the chain’s Director of Words, Phases,
and Clauses, Tara Miller, and Matt Sloan, the Vice
President of Marketing. In conversation with
Alison Nadler Guerette, Trader Joe’s’ Catergory Manager for candy, cookies, and cereal, Miller brought up the development of the milk chocolate bar. The chain’s tasting panel
has already approved the new product. – [Alison] It was milk chocolate but made with almond beverage, so it’s an almond
beverage-based milk chocolate, as opposed to a dairy milk chocolate But I wouldn’t have known the difference if I haven’t been told. I mean, it just tasted like really good, creamy milk chocolate. – [Announcer] According to the chain, the vegan milk chocolate bar is a response to customer demand. That’s if for today.

  1. Im early! Love that the shoes are made of recycled trash! I know that these companies are just trying to get our coin but if you want new shoes and like Nike then why not get the recycled ones? Love this

  2. VEGAN MOTIVATION 2020: I went vegan at 12, not rich or privileged, non vegan family, and still vegan 4 years later. Had no problem building muscle, If I can do it, so can you! Let's leave animal cruelty in the past

    I'm a fellow vegan YouTuber by the way. Let's get our health back 2020!!!!!!

  3. Circuses that use animals as a main attraction are a thing of the past. I am glad that attendance is dropping and some circuses are even going bankrupt like with Ringling Bros.

  4. It really feels like the dam has burst and the flood which is consumer pressure has carved a swath through companies profits to the point where they feel they need to change to survive.

    I hope it doesn't taper off when the companies find a profit equilibrium; the only way I see the pressure continue is by making meat etc socially unacceptable; making vegan the normal, the majority.

  5. Everyone should go vegan , decrease clothing we purchase and support companies who care about animals including humans and their environment.

  6. Dolphins r so smart they can do routeins most humans probly would have a harder time memorizing. But they wana act like they r to dumb to be released in the wild or at least taught how to survive in the wild. Just disgusting of them.

  7. It is all ways great to hear companies,such as Nike are getting on board for making something out of Recycle products.My question are these shoes unlike the other shoes they make.Are they made in the USA? 🌍✌

  8. Lab testing is the abs cruelest (outside of china eating dogs and cats) thing going on. They serve no purpose because nothing, not even chimps come close to human biology. So in essence these labs are run and operated by barbarians who sadistically torture animals and they love doing it. Look up some of them. They will haunt you. We need to stop funding them and shut them down and make them run shelters for animals instead and abolish the kill shelters, not Nazi torture chambers for animals. First thing to do is ditch dairy. Raped cows forced birth, slaughterhouses kill calves at birth or eat them as veal a couple weeks later) , suck her breast milk dry and do it all over again. When she can longer give milk they smash a metal bolt though her skull, hang her upside down by one leg and then slit her throat and she is bled out as she rolls along the convey with cow after cow 24/7/365. She is often skinned for leather and then becomes hamburg. It's cannibalism to me. The lab animals have already been fucked for life by the time the "testing is finished" (most of the testing kills the animal). We need to stop the whole lab testing once and for all. STOP THE FUNDING. Target universities< they do a lot of it. How many rapists, murderers and child predators/traffickers are there in our prisons? Test the fucking shit on them, not innocent animals.

  9. I’m just Posting this objectively:

    advocating for SBD/space between diet: vegan diet for human digestion : hopefully Government can be Scientifically Studying what optimal diet within Veganism is: ( as well for understanding what specific vegan diets animals eat )/ (what materials have the most scientific integrity for all processes/all systems: specifically):
    my best understanding of what optimal diet for humans is, is:
    Space Between Diet
    certified organic
    no wheat products
    no soy products
    no peanut products
    no coffee bean products
    vegan (plant-based) foods diet

  10. The speech of Joaquin Phoenix at his Oscar acceptance was extraordinary, and it's influencing many many people to go vegan! Thank you Joaquin Phoenix! 🙏👏👏👏❤

  11. Just like a little snowball, nudging slowly down the mountainside, picking up more snow, more speed, more snow more speed and BOOM! VEGAN AVALANCHE! UNSTOPPABLE!!!!

  12. Thank you for this video – the mistake of reading the mainstream news too often can make the world seem so bleak. It's a good feeling to see that there are more and more people waking up (and companies following)

  13. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE your videos! Always so informative, and I do get so excited to see all the changes happening around the world! I live in Canada, and sooo excited for the dairy free milk option, but wish they kept the beyond meat breakfast sandwich with JUST egg 🙁

  14. I make bacon out of Daikon Radish. I highly recommend everyone just buy a potplant, some compost/soil and some daikon radish seeds. ITS SO EASY It is one of the fastest growing foods, it's super nutritious and tastes GREAT when made into bacon strips.

  15. Your channel gives me hope for the world. Thank you for this content. I hope permaculture becomes mainstream next. It's an important 2nd step after veganism.

  16. So, Tim Horton’s finally has almond milk. Unfortunately, they have discontinued the vegan breakfast sandwich…the only vegan sandwich item they had.

  17. At 5:50, where are this dolphin’s teeth? You can clearly see the teeth of the others. Have they filed them down because he’s the one into whose mouth they stick their hands? How sad! How could he ever be set free?

  18. Throughout history regardless of the era those who suffered oppression injustice slavery unnecessary death were always seen as objects and not as innocent playful beings who love their offspring

    Steak bacon meat ham veal happy meals 🐕🐬🦘🐈🐋🐅🦍


    History always repeats itself

  19. Well, bacon kit has been sold out for days… looks like Muscle Foods didn’t expect THAT kind of demand 😂 I’ll be keeping an eye on it and once back in stock, I’ll definitely order it!!! 😃😊

  20. After Joaquin’s wonderful speech I would have hoped at least half of that room to go vegan.. of course, being the selfish people they are, that didn’t happen, did it?

  21. The way I read LD's tweet at 2:21: she namedrops, and doesn't mention the animals, which is the point of veganism; perhaps she is seeking some attention. Doubt she will ever become vegan, but plant based for a short while perhaps. Hope I'm incorrect as we need more vegans, and especially vegan activists. #GoVegan www.VeganVids.com www.UpgradeToVegan.com

  22. i make vegan bacon all the time using spring roll sheets. works great tastes great love it on salads and bacon and tomato sandwiches. Also make mayo and sour cream now delicious and no dairy or animal products. It is completely easy to do. We all need to help each other make this happen!! I think I will go make some almond chocolate milk on my vitamix. chow people.

  23. Lena who? Admittedly, I had to google her to find out who she is. Her popularity stems from the HBO series "Girls." I had to google that also! (But I was familiar with HBO.) As powerful as Joaquin's words were, I'm curious as to what prevented her from being "made" vegan prior to that speech. As I've said, I don't know her from Adam (Eve?), but I'm hoping that she didn't embrace veganism solely because of a well-known celebrity's endorsement. That would seem somewhat shallow of her and minimize all of the other exposure she's had concerning the vegan message which didn't resonate with her. I'm just making this supposition based on my own subjective observation, so please don't criticize me for it. For all I know, she may have been on the cusp of becoming vegan prior to hearing Joaquin and his words proved to be the tipping point. The good news: she's now vegan. The (potentially) bad news: she hasn't fully embraced the animal rights foundation behind veganism.

  24. What if we just use all the old stuff that's already made and what if these companies didn't come up with new ways to keep people consuming? 😃
    Notice they said "incorporates".

  25. I will get local farm cow milk for my curry, not from factory farms or imported ones. We get plentiful of coconut milk but I feel sorry for the chained monkeys working so hard in the coconut farms compared to a cows which do nothing but eat and sleep.

  26. "Despite the trauma the animals experience…." Why are we still doing this to animals? There MUST be another way to test these products.

  27. She doesn't seem like the type of person who will stick to it for the animals. Did she seriously not know how dairy was made before the Oscar speech?

  28. So vegan milk chocolate filled with SUGAR is better than dairy milk chocolate filled with SUGAR? WHY?

  29. I love your videos. I have noticed that subtitles are not available on them anymore. It does seem to be happening all over YouTube. I was wondering if you would be able to fix it on your videos?

  30. I'm sorry but I can't be enthusiastic about the continuation of products that imitate the addictive animal products. These highly processed "plant-based foods" are hardly more sustainable than animal products. Please understand that whole plant foods are especially good if that is what you eat. Nobody needs eggs, bacon, cheese, burgers or other addictive products that are so profitable but makes us less appreciate what is really good for us.

  31. Tim Horton cannot be trusted to enforce and keep vegan options on all locations !!! , they just ditched beyond Sausage of their menu with complete disregard to all their regular vegan & vegetarian costumers , besides they also still have many locations that still refuse to accommodate costumers that can't have cow's milk with any other alternative option that is a plant milk in spite of constant requests from many costumers !!! 🙁 , it's almost like they're in cahoots with the dairy " industry " !!!!!!
