Why vegan

Veganism is a social justice movement that is striving to bring about a world where animals are not exploited for food, clothing, entertainment or any other purpose.

While concern for animals is the foundation of veganism, there are many other benefits.  Plant based agriculture is a more efficient use of the world's scarce resources and can feed more people.  It is better for the environment.  And a vegan diet is good for our health.

If this all makes sense to you and you'd like to put this into practice in your own life, get started now!
