Why Vegan?

Why Vegan?


There are as many reasons to become vegan as there are vegans! But most of them fall into one of three groups: vegan for the animals, vegan for health, and vegan for the planet. All motivations are equally valid and when you make the transition, your body will love you and so will the animals.

With both the World Health Organization and the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognizing that a plant-based diet is appropriate for people at every stage of their lives, we think that it’s time more of us reclaimed our health. And the animals would agree! To learn more or just stay up-to-speed with news from the vegan/plant-based community, here is a selection of our favorite resources.
