“While I understand those natural reactions to the killing of these creatures, I think we owe Zuckerberg some plaudits, not only for reminding people that eating meat involves the killing of animals, but also for recognizing that it’s morally dubious to simply pass the “dirty work” off to an anonymous slaughter plant worker. Indeed, we should ask ourselves if there’s really much of an ethical difference between killing an animal (what Zuckerberg is doing) and paying others to kill animals for us (what most of us do).”

Facebook just keeps getting greener and greener.

Farmville went organic. CEO Mark Zuckerberg went almost vegetarian except for the occasional goat and lobsters he kills himself. And now, a game called “My Conservation Park” will let you play park ranger while raising money for the organizations that do it in real life.

Meatless Mouthful–Mark Zuckerberg Urged To Go Vegan

“Zuckerberg is known for taking on personal challenges, and he believes people “should take responsibility and be thankful for what they eat rather than trying to ignore where it came from.” Zuckerberg deserves credit for getting at least halfway through a mental lesson most people never bother to start. A new personal challenge could be for him to take this thought process to its logical conclusion, and to then act.”

“Zuckerberg is right. People don’t want to know the truth about the suffering and death that goes into their meat.”

Zuckerberg told Fortune in a detailed email how the idea for doing this came about and how he’s not only eating healthier, but has learned more sustainable ways of producing food.

Like other successful tech companies, Facebook provides its employees with deliciously good food perks. Josef Desimone, a former chef at Google, leads the food operations and says because he makes people so happy at work, he’s like “Santa Claus with knives.”

That sounds creepy, but after learning about the vegetarian, vegan and sustainable choices Mark Zuckerberg‘s subordinates get for free (yes, that’s three meals a day), we’ve come to the conclusion that knife-wielding Santa gives good little vegs all they ask for year round.

Employees may start the day with vegan breakfast waffles.

Social Network’s Jesse Eisenberg Almost Throws Punches Over Vegetarianism

Written by Vegetarian Star on Friday, September 24th, 2010 in Actors, Food & Drink, Videos.

Don’t let the baby face fool you. Jesse Eisenberg would have thrown a few punches in the name of vegetarianism if some paranoid, unsocial suspecting vegetarian would’ve kept up his attitude about being asked questions about the meatless lifestyle.

The actor who plays Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network said he almost got into a fight with someone on the subway just because the guy said vegetariansim was a personal question.

“I got in a fight with somebody on the subway once because I asked if they were a vegetarian, and he said that was too personal, and I got angry,” Eisenberg told Popeater.
