  1. Oh my goodness, I am so glad that I read that Luke and Lorelai article! Thank you for sharing!! As a devoted fan, I was devastated during the last season of Gilmore Girls. It feels comforting to know why the show took a turn the way that it did, and to know that the characters felt similarly let down by the ending. I’m not going to get my hopes up (wait, too late, they are already up) about a movie but I have my fingers crossed that it will happen because THAT WOULD BE AMAZING!! πŸ™‚

    Also, in regards to the Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream for climate change article — I can’t help but point out that while I totally love that companies are recognizing climate change, it does seem to me like it is hypocritical for Ben & Jerry’s to promote purchasing and consuming dairy as a means of combating climate change (in the same way that KFC donating a portion of their sales from fried chicken to breast cancer research is hypocritical, because meat consumption–especially meat that is high in saturated fat, as fried chicken is–is a risk factor for cancer). Animal agriculture is a primary contributor to climate change, even more than all transportation worldwide! If Ben & Jerry’s really wanted to promote sustainability and lessen environmental destruction, they could start transitioning toward offering non-dairy options such as ice creams made from coconut milk, almond milk, soymilk, rice milk, cashews, bananas, or all of the other plant-based options out there. These options are all delicious alternatives that are just as (or even more!) tasty, but without the same carbon footprint of dairy products πŸ™‚

    • Tara I agree with you 100% about the climate change ice cream!! I think this could be a way to appear environmentally aware and continue to boost the publics opinion of Ben & Jerrys. I WISH that Ben & Jerrys made soymilk or coconut milk ice cream…I would be in absolute heaven!! Ever since I watched those documentaries (as you suggested :p) and realized a few years back how bad dairy upsets my stomach/skin/etc. I have removed all dairy from my diet (except the occasional cheese!)! As always, you are so knowledgeable about this industry and I always appreciate your thoughts :)!
