Summary
Berlin Reed is "The Ethical Butcher, " a former self-described militant vegan punk who grudgingly took a job as a butcher's apprentice in Brooklyn when he could find no other work. Shockingly, he fell in love with the art of butchering, and a food revolution was born. Along the way he saw how corporate greed, unsustainable food practices, and outright misinformation gave birth to such falsities as the USDA label 'organic' and the conglomerate of eco-friendly supermarkets. Most people, even those that try to be healthy and green, are not really eating what they think they are eating. "The Ethical Butcher" will shine a light on these untruths and show a better way towards food justice and the sustainable living of a mindful omnivore. Through the lens of Berlin's personal story, "The Ethical Butcher" educates readers about how they can improve the meat industry by participating in it
Summary
