Ecotricity: “As Consumers We all Have the Power to Make a Difference”
A little known fact, even to most vegans, is that in over 50 percent of homes in the UK, millions of consumers are unwittingly powering their homes with electricity made with animal waste – even body parts from the meat and dairy industry. The practice is labelled “recycling” – and is in fact the use of animal parts to create gas or electric power. Ecotricity the “renewable energy pioneers” are the first in the UK to introduce an ethical counterpart – vegan electricity.
