Episode 357: Marc Ching of the Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation, and Ben Freedland of ZINK

By Jasmin and Mariann — November 12, 2016

Welcome to the 357th episode of Our Hen House!

marc-with-lionMariann welcomes Marc Ching, founder of the Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation, whose mission, when it started out, was to rescue and rehabilitate severely abused animals in the Los Angeles area. Marc has recently expanded this mission to include documenting the cruelty and rescuing dogs from the dog meat trade in Asia, at great personal, financial, and emotional risk. His willingness to bear witness to the suffering of those who cannot speak for themselves is the reason he received one of the 2016 Lisa Shapiro Awards for Unsung Vegan Heroes from our good friends at The Pollination Project. You’ll be profoundly moved by his work to change the world for animals. 

benfreedlandJasmin showcases Ben Freedland, founder of the vegan company ZINK, whose Fair Trade Jute Collection brings quality to both producer and consumer. From material to maker, ZINK is committed to timeless, artisan goods that are 100% vegan and 100% ethically made. Some great gift ideas here, too!

And of course, Mariann covers News and Rising Anxieties!

As always, the award-winning, weekly Our Hen House podcast is hosted by Mariann Sullivan and Jasmin Singer.

This episode is sponsored by A Well-Fed World. A Well-Fed World is a hunger relief and animal protection organization chipping away at two of the world’s most immense, unnecessary and unconscionable forms of suffering… the suffering of people hungry from lack of food, and the suffering of animals used and abused for food. Mending our unjust food system is a critical part of solving the world’s most destructive and persistent problems. Fortunately, the plant-based foods that promote health and well-being are the same foods that conserve resources to better feed the world, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting the environment. A Well-Fed World provides the means for change by empowering individuals, social justice organizations, and political decision makers to embrace the benefits of plant-based foods and farming.
