Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude as much as possible all forms of exploitation and cruelty towards animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. It has been around for decades, but has recently seen a huge surge in popularity and we’re here to give you a few reasons to go vegan yourself.
To Help Animals
Avoiding animal products is one of the most obvious ways you can take a stand against animal cruelty and animal exploitation everywhere. By going vegan, you alone will save over 100 animals per year!
For The Environment
One of the biggest causes of global warming is meat consumption. Cattle farming alone emits huge levels of methane and requires very high water and food consumptions. So, if you’re looking to lower your carbon footprint, avoiding all animal products is much more efficient that switching to an automatic car for example.
For your Health
Going vegan has many health benefits. The plant-based sources of protein, iron, calcium and other essential vitamins and minerals tend to be low in saturated fat, high in fibre and packed with antioxidants which have all been proven to prevent many serious diseases such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
For you Figure
Going vegan is a healthy way to slim down you figure as well, as you get rid of many bad sources of fat on a long term basis. This way of eating is much healthier and more efficient than the many fad-diets you may have heard of these days.
Because it’s delicious!
One of the main things holding people back from going vegan is usually the fear of giving up foods like cheese, ice-cream and burgers. Luckily, there exist many delicious vegan alternatives that’ll leave you feeling just as satisfied and with a better conscience!
Because all the coolest people are
Brad Pitt, Ellen DeGeneres, Natalie Portman, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway, Ellie Goudling, Jenifer Lopez and even Jared Leto have gone vegan so you know what to do to join the club!
