$200 discount on your rent if you go vegan/vegetarian?

How much of a discount would it take you?

http://mashable.com/2015/10/17/seattle-landlord-gives-tenants-a-200-discount-for-being-vegetarian/#8jtkZbdybZqW

Jinesh Varia doesn't eat meat, and he's currently landlord for a (by all appearances) lovely townhouse he’s renting out in a Seattle suburb. According to a report by K5 News, Varia will be offering tenants a $200 monthly discount if they stick to a vegan or vegetarian diet. He believes that vegetarian diets are the right way to go “ethically and morally.”

“I really believe, just like the no smoking policy that all landlords have today, that we can promote this as a way to spread awareness. See if I can create a trend,” he told the station.

While Varia has no plans to look through anyone’s garbage, he’s hoping that people will leave their meat at the door — so he can reward them with a rent reduction. In a city where one bedrooms average around $1,615 a month (you don’t want to imagine what that’ll get you in Nebraska), big discounts can make a big difference.

I respect bruh's effort, but this isn't even worth trying. Too many people would take advantage and it would be way too easy.

Vegans put a lot of trust in others though. When I was vegetarian/vegan for almost 10 years I noticed how sensitive it made me to my surroundings. It really made give a **** about the feelings of others. Nature started feeling very real to me. I would imagine what a bird's day is like.

So from this landlord's perspective he is assuming the renter will honor the diet because he has that much faith in others. This way of eating instills an optimistic view of the world around you.

Yea but...you can save $2400 per year on rent just to pretend being a vegan.

This is 2015, bruh. No trustworthiness when it comes to saving $. laugh.gif

I stopped because I believe you can still eat a healthy diet with animal products. Sardines for example are very healthy for you. I never bought into the ethical side of it although I did notice it made me more compassionate. I think the food we eat affects our frequency level. If you're eating death all day long as opposed to living foods, who is going to have a brighter outlook on the world? Even if you're an angry vegan it's because of all the injustices you're aware of which the majority of people don't seem to care about.

Yeah the reactions are a trip. Never understood how something I'm NOT eating affects you. It just means more for you. People complain about preachy vegans but vegans only make up 1% of the population and not all of them are preachy. Even if a vegan tries to keep their diet a secret, it's only so long you can keep it from your friends, family, and coworkers. But when it comes out OH BOY does it send shockwaves! I used to envy someone in the breakroom eating a burger in peace meanwhile for months and months people would come up to my table and ask what I was eating that day, like it was a mystery of the world.

I find myself eating meat mostly on my workout days. Honestly, I mainly enjoy sides / carbs from meals. I can't tell you how long I haven't had a steak or a burger and just had a desire to eat one. I don't eat much fish. Only salmon. Pretty much I just eat chicken. I could be a vegetarian if I tried, but I'm not a believer in depriving oneself.

Couldn't be a vegan fam. Vegetarian? Could do that at least.

 

Fish is probably a hell of a lot better anyways, assuming its of quality.

A 5 month window that includes Thanksgiving must not be the greatest of timing on reflection :lol
