The Humane Being is a UK-based non-profit vegan advocacy group, run by dedicated volunteers, aiming to support people with raised awareness, information, ideas, and encouraging actions towards creating a kinder, truly humane world. We are privileged to have Jane Tredgett, the founder and director of Humane Being, and founder of Scrap Factory Farming, also David Finney, the spokesperson of Scrap Factory Farming, joining us on our show today. They start by sharing their vegan journeys.

“And I wanted to bring an organization forward that helped people to think about what was happening to the planet and their animals and to join the dots up of what the correlation was. There were a lot of organizations at the time that were helping animals. There were a lot of environmental organizations, but there were very few at the time that were actually aligning those two messages. So that's really how we started looking at bringing the messages forward. And we created a not-for-profit organization, called Humane Being.”

“The initial trigger for the whole legal aspect of what we're doing came from a book that I was given to read called ‘Chickens’ Lib’ by a lady called Clare Druce.” The book, “Chickens’ Lib” is a remarkable record of boldness and dedication detailing how these two brave women challenged the government, MAFF (Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food), and the poultry industry, by first bringing attention to the British public to the conditions in which chickens lived and then managing to get the law changed on battery farmed chickens.

“So, our key messages have always been people, animals, and the planet, because everyone is affected by factory farming.” “So, our aim is quite simple. We want to scrap factory farming and see it finished for the good of people, the good of the planet, and also to protect animals.” “And that's what needs to happen to protect the planet, to protect us all from pandemics, is that combination of legislation with awareness.”
