As an animal rights advocate for 15 years, I hear you, but don't believe the environmental motivation is very powerful to most people. I live in Port Townsend, WA, a town full of very self-righteous "greenies." Whenever I mention the words vegan or vegetarian, the typical reaction is a blank stare. . ., then maybe some lame self-justification about protein or free-range.

Makes me want to scream! (I do it silently, of course.) BTW, did you read the lastest breaking news at Huffington Post? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kathy-freston/help-stop-cruelty-to-anim_b_127967.html

If you or anyone is interested in going vegan, here are some good vegan starter kits:

Great links Jean and Elaine.

I'm willing to make all the arguments there are: health, humane behavior, environment, whatever works.
