Why Vegan?
There are many good reasons to adopt a plant-based diet. We believe there is no wrong reason to go vegan! Here are a few good reasons why to inspire you to choose a vegan diet.

FOR YOUR HEALTH

The science is in. A vegan diet is one of the most healthy options for optimal health. From curing obesity, to reversing heart disease, following a plant-based diet is one of the smartest (and kindest) things you can do for your health.

FOR THE ANIMALS

Animals are sentient beings who are treated abominably by our current food system. There is a place for all of us on this earth and all play an important part in a healthy ecosystem. Animals should be treated with the respect and compassion they deserve.

FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

The meat and fishing industries have a detrimental impact on our land, air, and water--contributing to climate change, mass extinction, and environmental destruction. By choosing a vegan diet you take direct action against the industries and practices that harm our environment.

FOR HUMANITY

Do you know where your food comes from? From the farms, to the slaughter houses to the fishing boats, people are being exploited, abused and sometimes enslaved to bring more meat and fish into your diet. If your spirit cries out for social justice in our world, it's time to go vegan!
