    Why vegan – for other people’s well being

    Some of you might wonder how and in which way it benefits others if you stop eating animal products. It probably isn’t the first reason vegans list when they explain their chosen diet but definitely a strong aspect to think about!   We currently are growing enough food to feed 10 billion people and still can’t end hunger. To produce only one pound of cow flesh it requires 16 pounds (~ 7kg) of plant food and 5000 gallons (~18927L) of water, compared to 25 gallons (~95L) of water which it takes to produce one pound of wheat. UNICEF as well as the United Nations said that on average 25,000 people…

    Why vegan – for the environment & our planet

    The common believe that the main reason for the climate change and the huge carbon footprint is the waste gas of cars and other transportation has been stated wrong. According to United Nations Scientists, the meat industry is the leading cause of climate change, water depletion, soil erosion and most other environmental problems.   Greenhouse gas emission and waste The animal agriculture – livestock and their by products – is responsible for 51% (32000 million tons) of all greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, which is more than the combined exhaust from all transportation. If we all stopped using any types of transportation (car, train, plane and ships) today it still wouldn’t…

    Why vegan – for your health

    The health issue is a huge reason for people to ditch all animal products. Our whole lives we get told that animal products are necessary and healthy for our body. Someone actually told me that teenagers and young adults (people under 25) who stop consuming animal products harm their bodies. There are countless of those claims out there, and they all have one thing in common: they are all just stories somebody told and taught us. For someone in China it is totally normal to eat a dog whereas a US citizen couldn’t imagine eating what their culture considers a pet. It really matters in which part of the world…

    Why vegan – for the animals

      According to an APPA survey the estimated number of pet dogs and cats living in US households is 163.6 million, which means a lot of people actually do like animals. However, more than 56 billion animals are killed every year for flesh, dairy and eggs. The animals used for food are just as intelligent and able to suffer as those who share our homes. Dogs, cats, cows – what is the difference? Why do we love one and kill the other one? With one we share our home, sometimes even the bed and cry over their deaths; yet we stick forks and knives into the bodies of other animals…

    Why vegan

    Veganism is becoming bigger and bigger. Vegan restaurants seem to sprout up everywhere, vegan labelled products can be found in every supermarket and even on social media it is widely spread. Some people say it is just a trend and eventually fade away – I however don’t think so.   When I became vegan some of my friends told me I now officially turned into a weirdo, but the only thing I actually turned into was a more aware person. I have been vegetarian for over 6 years before I started to really dig into the reasons of adapting to a vegan lifestyle. For some reason I always liked the…
