173: Sweet Ritual & Cool School

173: Sweet Ritual & Cool School

 

Amelia Raley grew up in Northwest Arkansas, the capital of Tyson Foods, where it was a regular occurrence to see chickens on the side of the road, who had fallen from transport trucks. She was also nearby the University of Arkansas' animal experimental farms, where she witnessed cattle testing techniques and had first-had exposure to the animal agriculture industry.

After a period of time, Amelia was exposed to veganism by accident, while attending the University of Oregon, and today runs one of Austin's coolest shops, Sweet Ritual. She is also the founder of an all vegan ice cream school, Cool School, which is a 5-day course about commercial ice cream production and has hosted a total of over 50 alumni so far!

127: Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

127: Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

Renee King-Sonnen went from rancher's wife to vegan highly because of a special calf she calls Rowdy Girl. Renee's husband Tommy wanted her to care for the calf, hoping that she would become a better Rancher's Wife.

Renee quickly realized the cows were sentient beings as she watched the mothers and babies cry for each other when they were separated. She bought Rowdy Girl for $300, which gave her the official title as a "Rancher", having no idea that this was to be the beginning of her journey towards veganism.

Today, Renee and Tommy's ranch that was once called "Sonnen Ranch" is a sanctuary named after her calf, Rowdy Girl. Rowdy Girl Sanctuary is recognized as a 501C-3 (Non-Profit) and houses 107 animals, 62 of which are cows!
