Each year, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg sets himself a challenge. Last year, it was to learn Chinese. This year, Zuckerberg says he will only eat meat that comes from animals he’s personally killed, in an endeavor to understand the morality of eating meat.
“I’m eating a lot healthier foods. And I’ve learned a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals,” he told Fortune in an email. “It’s easy to take the food we eat for granted when we can eat good things every day.” Reducing one’s meat consumption is also a way to reduce one’s impact on the environment, as is eating locally raised animals.
Zuckerberg made the announcement via his private Facebook page, saying he’d just killed a pig and a goat. He is getting help in his endeavor from Palo Alto restaurateur Jesse Cool, who has introduced Zuckerberg to farmers. After Zuckerberg kills each animal, it is then sent to a professional butcher, who cuts the animal apart. Zuckerberg and his girlfriend, who is also helping him with the project, are also making an effort to eat all of the animals’ parts, including the organs.
Beginning last Friday in honor of Earth Day, O.N.E. Coconut Water launched a new fund raising campaign to help children around the world live healthier, more sustainable lives. O.N.E. is partnering with Healthy Child Healthy World, a nonprofit that’s dedicated to raising awareness about harmful chemicals that may exist in children’s everyday environments and further works towards getting these chemicals and pollutants banned from household products.
“We are very proud of our relationship with Healthy Child Healthy World and will continue to join them in efforts to further educate families about the importance of protecting children from the environmental hazards found in common household products and food,” said O.N.E. Founder and CEO Rodrigo Veloso in a press release. “With this campaign, our goal is to obtain the funding that will allow for continued educational programming about ways consumers can eliminate exposure to toxins in home products.”

Last week we introduced you to the Weight Watchers Lose For Good program – a weight loss campaign that will donate a pound of food for each pound of weight lost by its members. The donations, up to $1 million, are being contributed to Action Against Hunger and Share Our Strength, two organizations actively working against hunger.
Next Tuesday, September 15, Weight Watchers is upping its ante, by offering to contribute up to an additional $25,000 in its Lose-A-Palooza one-day social media event. And it’s up to each of us to help them reach that goal!

You can also follow each of these two organizations (@acfusa or @sharestrength) for an additional $1 donation. (more…)
