Vegetarians and omnivores alike can admit that the topic of eating meat is complex, often spurring discussions about the environmental, societal and moral impacts of a meat-based diet.
Enter Meatpaper, a quarterly journal that covers all things meaty, from the ethics of confined animal feeding operations to personal stories of ranchers and fishermen to profiles of musicians who harmonize over the virtues of beef. The magazine presents the viewpoints of sustainable meat advocates, vegetarians, unapologetic carnivores and more.
Past issues of Meatpaper have reported on meat glue, eating endangered species, and the consequences of the global rise of meat consumption. Meatpaper even offers advice for relationships between vegetarians and meat eaters.
