Vegan: no meat, dairy, eggs, leather, fur, rodeo, circus, animal-tested products or anything else involving exploitation of or cruelty to animals.
Vegan! Animal agriculture is the No. 1 cause of world hunger, rainforest destruction, species extinction, air and water pollution, soil erosion, heart disease, climate change, murder of sentient beings, spiritual decay and a host of other atrocities. Sowing seeds of loving-kindness and compassion is the answer.
To meet vegans who understand that it is about compassion, not radiant health and environmental sustainability. Those are merely side benefits for doing the right thing.
I am a profoundly happy vegan of eight years. My utopian vision is a world of peace, justice and equality for humans and animals, and I believe that journey starts with the latter.
