Veganism is a diet and lifestyle that seeks to exclude the use of animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose.


  • "There is injustice; you can challenge it. There is a way to live a life of integrity, of trying to do the least harm possible, of integrating political beliefs with what you eat and how you treat others. Welcome to a feminist-vegan vision for the world."
  • My best performances were when I was 30 years old, and I was a vegan.
    • Carl Lewis, retired American track and field olympic athlete [1]
  • If the entire world decided to become vegan tomorrow, a whole host of the world's problems would disappear overnight. Climate change would decrease by 25 percent, deforestation would cease, rainforests would be preserved, our water- and air-quality would increase, life-expectancy rates would increase, and our rates of cancer would plummet, so certainly, with that one action of becoming vegan you are quite effectively making the world a better place.
  • The contemporary vegan movement is founded on loving-kindness and mindfulness of our effects on others. It is revolutionary because it transcends and renounces the violent core of the herding culture in which we live.
  • Veganism denotes a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practical—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment.
