Sat+Sun 5th+6th : Vegan Beer Festival at Sumac
Vegetarians don’t eat fish and they never have.
“ VEGETARIAN” – someone who doesn’t eat animals
“ FISH” – cold-blooded, water-dwelling animal
Fish may not appear as cute and cuddly as young lambs, however they do feel pain and they do suffer. The fishing industry is responsible for some of the most environmentally damaging practices affecting our seas and oceans today.
