The easiest way to show compassion for animals is through food. We get to choose compassion every day when we eat. Food has the power to create a happier and healthier world. That’s why we’ve curated a fully vegan store to make your vegan lifestyle easier. More than the products in the store, we should all play a part in creating a better world for the animals, to care for our planet and our health in equal measure.
Here are some of the reasons you should consider veganism (peta.org)
It’s the Best Way to Help Animals
Did you know that every vegan saves nearly 200 animals per year? There is simply no easier way to help animals and prevent suffering than by choosing plant-based foods over meat, eggs, and dairy “products.”
Healthier and Happier
Being vegan is great for your health! According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, vegans are less likely to develop heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure than meat-eaters are. Vegans get all the nutrients that they need to be healthy, such as plant protein, fiber, and minerals, without all the nasty stuff in meat that may slow you down and make you sick, such as cholesterol and saturated animal fat
Help Feed the World
Eating meat doesn’t just hurt animals—it hurts people, too. It takes tons of crops and water to raise farmed animals. In fact, it takes up to 13 pounds of grain to produce just 1 pound of animal flesh! All that plant food could be used much more efficiently if people just ate it directly. The more people who go vegan, the better able we’ll be to feed the hungry.
Save the Planet
Meat is not environmentally friendly. Consuming it is actually one of the worst things that you can do for the Earth. Meat production is wasteful and causes enormous amounts of pollution, and the industry is also one of the biggest causes of climate change. In the Amazon, rainforests are being clear-cut at a rate of over 47 acres a minute to create pastures for cattle. Destruction of the world’s forests on this scale is not only unsustainable but also incredibly inefficient. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, cattle pastures make up 70 percent of the world’s agricultural land, but yield only 6 to 11 percent of our food.
