1. Saving Animals
Farmed animals make up the vast majority of animals abused by humans. Going vegan spares the lives of about 30 farmed animals each year and countless wild animals, including endangered species!
2. Protecting the Environment
Animal agriculture produces more greenhouse gases than all forms of transportation in the world combined! Factory farms also pollute waterways and destroy air quality, making eating vegan one of the best ways to protect our planet.
