Vegan Woman Angry Over The Nationwide Bunnings Sausage Sizzle For Bushfire Victims

Vegan Woman Angry Over The Nationwide Bunnings Sausage Sizzle For Bushfire Victims

Bunnings has announced a massive nationwide sausage sizzle next week, with all proceeds going to help people affected by bushfires across Australia.

The news has been met with praise and support from Aussies who want to do their bit to help out those who are doing it tough.

However, one vegan has hit out at the DIY and hardware company for promoting meat eating.

The unnamed woman posted to a vegan Facebook group saying: "Why oh why are people selling sausages to raise money when it's known that meat is a contributing factor to climate change? Which is a contributing factor to these fires.

"It honestly baffles my mind and makes me so sad. It's a heartbreaking vicious cycle."

According to Yahoo News, the woman's post was met with support from other vegans.

"Just throw some thoughts and prayers and ignore the actual problem," one person said in reaction to the woman's post.

"I agree, to be honest," said a second.

But the woman was also met with scorn by other followers of the Facebook group, with some telling the vegan her message was ill-timed.

"As a part of those local communities who have been affected, we want to help," Bunnings chief operating officer Debbie Poole said in a statement.

"Many of our regional teams have already been assisting impacted communities on a local level but we had team members from all over Australia also wanting to lend a hand for these two important causes."

Bunnings is partnering with GIVEIT, an organisation that works with charities, community groups and councils during times like this.

GIVIT chief executive officer Sarah Tennant said: "We guarantee 100 per cent of all funds raised through Bunnings will be used to purchase essential items for those affected.

"We are also committed to purchasing locally wherever possible to support the economic recovery of these affected areas."
