We are a non-profit organization dedicated to improving life on our planet by educating the public about the benefits of adopting a plant-based lifestyle. We promote compassion toward animals, the environment, and humanity by choosing to live cruelty-free. Adopting a plant-based diet makes perfect sense for many reasons. Vegetarians and Vegans enjoy great health, inner peace, and a strong connection with the earth and the environment. We come from all walks of life and all areas of the world. We are all ages, colors, and cultures. Regardless of your reason for your interest in vegetarianism, we invite you to explore our site, contact us, attend our dinners and meet nationally and internationally known vegetarians, get involved and join our society. See for yourself how going vegetarian or vegan truly is the best thing you can do for yourself, the animals, and the earth.
From the Prez,
As Spring approaches we begin to venture outside and appreciate our environment – flowers bloom, birds return, and gardens are planted. These days, the flowers are blooming earlier in many parts of the world, bird migration is being affected and the habitats the birds migrate to are being impacted, and gardens are being planted earlier, … all by increasing average temperatures worldwide. In other words, by climate change.
Because our dietary habits have played such a large role in destabilizing our climate, learning and understanding more about the connections between our daily dietary choices and their environmental impacts is becoming more and more important. As vegetarians, we can be thankful that we have taken a major step towards stabilizing climate…simply by not contributing to climate destabilization via our diets. But not enough of us are on the veggie bandwagon to slow down climate change.
