A plant-based shift would be
transformative in so many ways.

 


Animal agriculture is driving a global water crises.

But it doesn't end there. To quote the Stanford Environmental Law Journal, farming animals for food is "destroying our planet and our ability to thrive on it." Our mission is help make connections and debunk common myths using unbiased, credible sources.

The radical truth is that people can be perfectly happy as vegans, but the dominant culture can’t or won’t acknowledge this. We aren’t talking about creating a world in which everyone is deprived. Being vegan is not a diet of deprivation that we are undergoing just to save the planet. Being vegan is an exciting, wonderful culinary experience and we probably don’t even know what’s possible because it’s still so new.”
— Carol J. Adams, iconic author, "The Sexual Politics of Meat"

Take a clear ethical stance against animal exploitation. 

It's important to understand and discuss animal agriculture's enormous environmental impacts – but we believe this should be done within a framework that acknowledges this damage is incidental to the great moral wrong of needlessly exploiting others (both human and non-human) in the first place. 

Although the vegan ethic is often positioned as "extreme," it's really just a logical extension of one's already-existing belief in fairness and justice. Veganism disrupts the social norm that insists animals should be used and killed by humans for reasons other than survival. When thoughtfully executed, veganism can allow us to take a more consistent stance against our culture’s relentless exploitation of people, planet, and animals.
