Veganism:

Making the choice to sustain life without the need or use of animal products.


Why VEgan?

millions of people have CHOSEn to switch to a plant-based lifestyle for many different reasons. For some, it comes from learning the harsh truths of how animals are treated in the animal AGRICULTURE industry. For others, it comes through learning the truth of how damaging a meat based diet can be to human health. For others still, there is the truth of how the meat INDUSTRY is the single largest contributor to the destruction of our planet and the animals we share our home with.
