    Cows aren't eating that much soy in the UK (around 10% of diet), its mainly Chickens with a high soy impact, pork is also far worse than beef. Soy is rubbish though, as they cut down millions of hectares annualy of forest in south america to plant it

    I cut out Chicken and Eggs about six months ago unless I was happy they were high welfare but have pretty much dropped chicken. I came at it from a slightly different angle after listening to a Will MacAskill (effective altruism, recommend checking it out) and him talking about the concept of net suffering and you could argue that if you have to eat meat, eating larger animals would lead to a reduction in net suffering in the world which made sense, if I eat mainly beef or sheep, a couple of animals can sustain me for a year, if I eat a lot of chicken, that is fifty plus animals I need to eat a year. This assumes I eat only happy animals and not one sad cow versus fifty happy chickens.

    If I had the room, I would definatly breed rabbits for consumption, hopefully will in the future when not in a flat.

    I remember reading an article on this in the last month but can't find it but was saying it's a massive issue in the haulage industry with many drivers carrying on working following disqualification, apparently it's rampant and companies turn a blind eye as the responsibility is on the driver. Wasn't just hgv, was white van couriers as well.

    I'm pretty sure Thames actually have a FOG (fat, oil and grease) recycling centre, so imagine the fatberg is going there. They use it to increase the production of biogas that they produce from digesting sludge and which they burn in combined heat and power engines to power and heat their waste treatment works
