WHY VEGAN?

for the animals

Many of us say we love animals and claim to be against animal cruelty, while often our actions reflect the exact opposite. When we go vegan, and no longer support the  exploitation and suffering of animals, we begin to live up to our values of love and respect for all beings.

FOR OUR PLANET

Did you know that animal agriculture is the leading cause of nearly every environmental issue?

It’s important we take care of our environment for all the people and animals who inhabit it. Fortunately, many of us really do care and want to help protect our planet. 

FOR YOUR HEALTH

More and more people are turning to a plant-based diet for the various health benefits. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics stated that “appropriately planned vegetarian, including vegan, diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.”

“Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose.”
