What you need to know
Veganism is not just a diet. It's a lifestyle that seeks to reduce animal harm by refusing to contribute to systems that profit from exploitation.
What is veganism?
The term "Vegan" was created in 1944 by the Vegan Society founder, Donald Watson, in order to compellingly advocate for the most intelligent and ethical forms of consumption. Since its inception, veganism has been spread and supported in many countries around the world. Vegans will avoid foods of animal origin such as meat, eggs, milk, honey, as well as skin, wool, feathers, bones, and pearls. In addition to this vegans also refrain from attending circuses and similar events that are inherently cruel.
Why should you be vegan?
For the animals
Do you believe that all sentient beings deserve the right to live and to be free? If so, you are aligned with the core principle of veganism. Simply by avoiding animal products and reducing demand, you alone can help to save hundreds of animals from abuse and exploitation every year.
For your health
your own
From greater energy to more youthful skin, numerous health benefits have been scientifically attributed to the vegan diet. When planned properly, a vegan diet is rich in protein, iron, calcium, and essential vitamins and minerals for your body.
In addition, plant nutrition is generally lower in saturated fat and richer in fiber and antioxidants, all while lowering your risk of obesity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. To learn more about healthy eating, please refer to our nutrition section.
For the environment
We are at a critical junction in global history where the necessity for climate action is acutely urgent and imperative for the very survival of humankind. Among many others, an Oxford University study has concluded that a vegan diet is the “single biggest way” an individual can reduce their environmental impact. Non-vegan food sources are responsible for a colossal 75% of global farmland - not to mention greenhouse gas emissions from cow flatulence and feces, as well as the serious pollution production and resource consumption caused by factory farming.
For humanity
A highly understated benefit of veganism is its contribution towards creating a world where the human population will be fed much more abundantly and equitably. A vegan diet requires only one-third of the land area required by the conventional omnivorous diet. There is also an alarming, growing number of food and water shortages occurring in the world, which inordinately impacts the world's poor and is resulting in dire environmental, economic and social problems. Now is the time to adopt a more lifestyle that is more sustainable and compassionate not just for other animals but also for our fellow humans. The simplest way to do this is to adopt a vegan diet.
production harmful to the environment?
Why are meat, egg and dairy
From livestock feed to clean water, transportation to supply chain processes, there is an incredible number of environmental consequences that are directly tied to what we choose to eat as consumers. The huge amounts of grain used to feed cattle leads to serious deforestation, the loss of natural habitats and biodiversity, and the irreversible extinction of many different species.
In Brazil alone, about 2.3 million hectares of land are being used to grow soybeans to feed livestock in Europe. Many do not realise that this directly contributes to global human hunger and malnutrition, as the poor are being pushed to grow crops to feed livestock instead of for themselves. A vegan diet will help ensure that our limited clean water, plant and land resources are much more efficiently used and preserved, effectively minimising the human impact on the natural environment.
Is vegetarianism enough?
Many people make the sound ethical choice to eschew meat products to help to end unnecessary animal cruelty. Unfortunately, the connection between dairy, eggs and animal cruelty is less obvious.
