Earth911 Podcast: Making Meat Sustainable & Humane with Paul Shapiro

Earth911.com: Sustainability In Your Ear

Author, Business for Good Podcast host and The Better Meat Co. CEO Paul Shapiro joins Earth911 to explain prospects for clean meat made from fungi, animal cell cultures and plant-based proteins. The future of meat will involve far fewer animals raised on inhumane industrial farms, which are known as Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, or “CAFOs.” In a CAFO, animals are packed into small spaces polluted by their own waste; it’s a horrible life that ends in terror. Better Meat has developed fungi-based protein, called Rhiza, that can augment beef, chicken, pork, turkey, fish and shellfish in recipes, lowering our own environmental impact and reducing the cruel treatment of animals. But the story only starts there, he explains how cultured meats grown from animals cells, known as clean meat, is more sanitary -- it is not exposed to viscera and fecal matter during slaughter, because there is no slaughter -- and can be produced at large scale within the decade.Paul argues that we need to stop subsidizing meat production and fund more research into meat alternatives. Like Big Oil, Big Meat has an unfair advantage that can be turned toward incentives for clean meat. Meat consumption is on the rise globally and in the U.S. we consume 9 billion chickens, 32.2 million cattle, 241.7 million turkeys and 121 million hogs annually, according to the North American Meat Institute. That’s about 100 billion pounds of meat annually. By contrast, clean meat alternatives still account for less than 1% of the meat sold in the U.S. There's a long road ahead, and this interview is an opportunity to meet an early leader is the post-industrial meat movement.

Paul Shapiro: Better Meat

Species Unite

“It's kind of like light… you flick a light switch on in the room and when you flip that switch, what you want is the experience of a lit room. You're not thinking about whether it comes from renewable energy or fossil fuels. You just want light. Well, I think most people just want meat. They don't care if animals are slaughtered. In fact, they probably would prefer that they not be slaughtered for it.” – Paul Shapiro Paul is the founder and CEO of the Better Meat Co., an alternative protein company that is replacing animals in our food supply. He’s also the author of, Clean Meat: How Growing Meat Without Animals Will Revolutionize Dinner and the World. Paul spent the first two-plus decades of his career in animal protection. First, he founded and ran the animal protection organization, Compassion Over Killing, which is now called Animal Outlook, and then he spent 13 years at the Humane Society of the United States, working to give farmed animals better lives. He changed laws and the world for massive amounts of animals across this county. And then he had a realization… that food technology would save far more lives than anything else possibly ever could.

078: 30-Year Vegan Inspired by World's Fastest Runner with Paul Shapiro

Plant Based Eating for Health

Long before people knew how to pronounce the word vegan, Paul Shapiro was inspired to not consume animal or dairy. His decision was based on being compassionate to animals. Although Paul didn’t have anywhere near the knowledge he has today, he knew the animals were not being treated well. This was when the seeds of activism were planted. Paul’s activism began by writing letters to animal welfare organizations. This was back in the day that there was no email, Internet, or social media. Yet, even though Paul was committed to learning more about being vegan, he didn’t realize he could be healthy by eliminating all meat. He felt it was like holding his breath. There is only so long you can hold your breath and he felt there was only so long he could go without meat. Yet, nearly 30 years later, he has been 100% without meat and dairy and performs at an incredibly high physical and emotional level. Life as a vegan is made easier by the fact that his wife, Toni Okamoto, a highly successful social media influencer, is also vegan. The author of three very successful vegan/plant-based cookbooks, Toni is most well known for her branding and highly successful book, Plant Based on a Budget. Both Toni and Paul were vegan before meeting one another yet having this in common was a huge plus to their attraction to one another. As the author of the highly successful book, Clean Meat; How Growing Meat Without Animals Will Revolutionize Dinner and the World and founder/CEO of the Better Meat Co., Paul is quick to say he lives in his wife’s shadow. www.bettermeat.co   http://www.paul-shapiro.com
