    Argument i had today: plastic is more sustainable than paper

    Okay, so my mother went vegan approximately a year after I did, too. She doesn't really do it for the environment's sake (even though she says she does, but I will explain this soon) but for the animals.

    Mussels are not sentient. Would you have a problem with someone eating them and still calling themselves vegan? Sure, technically they are animals, but I'm more concerned with ethics than specifics. They have minimal to no affect on the environment when harvesting. My morals and standards still...
