Why vegan?

When you transition to a vegan lifestyle, you make the world a more peaceful place! For the ANIMALS Love animals? Don't eat them! According to PETA, 198 are saved each year, per vegan person. According to Cowspiracy, 2.7 trillion animals are pulled from the ocean each year and 70 billion farmed animals are raised annually, worldwide. More than 6 million animals killed every hour for food. For the PLANET Eating a vegan diet could be the “single biggest way” to reduce your environmental impact on earth. Researchers at the University of Oxford found that cutting meat and dairy products from your diet could reduce an individual's carbon footprint from food by up to 73 percent.
