A Sneak Peek at Jon and Tracey Stewart's Animal Rescue Farm

After months of rumors, it was confirmed this past weekend that Jon and Tracey Stewart are turning their 12-acre farm in Middleton, New Jersey into a Farm Sanctuary site. It will be the fourth such Farm Sanctuary with other locations in upstate New York, and Northern and Southern California.

The Stewart's have worked with Farm Sanctuary for years, especially Tracey, who is a vegan and the editor-in-chief of the online parenting magazine Moomah. Her book, Do Unto Animals, was published a week ago. Last April, Jon hosted Farm Sanctuary president and co-founder Gene Baur on The Daily Show.

Gayle King of CBS This Morning visited the Stewart's last week at their farm for the couple's first interview.

On the afternoon of Jan. 15, activist Diane Wilson kicked off a San Antonio Estuary Waterkeeper meeting on the side of the road across from a Formosa plastics manufacturing plant in Point Comfort, Texas.

After Wilson and the waterkeeper successfully sued Formosa, the company agreed to no longer release even one of the tiny plastic pellets known as nurdles into the region's waterways. The group of volunteers had assembled that day to check whether the plant was still discharging these raw materials of plastics manufacturing.
