Being a vegan is a philosophy and a way of life

Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. Vegans avoid as much as possible products like leather and any tested on animals.

Our Diet for Health

Vegans eat a plant-based diet avoiding all animal foods such as meat, fish, shellfish, insects, dairy, eggs and honey. From 'junk food vegans' to raw food vegans, there's a version of veganism to suit everyone. But we vegans have discovered that eating a whole foods plant based diet free of animal products is conducive to excellent health. This diet has been scientifically demonstrated to be extremely resource and energy efficient. It is the only viable method in providing a healthy diet for the world population.

The Movement for Compassion

The vegan movement was founded in England in the 1940s by Donald Watson, Elsie Shrigley, and others who believed that it was wrong to use and kill animals for human purposes, and that people of conscience were therefore morally obliged not to take part in harming animals. Vegans resolve not to use and consume animal products for food, clothing, or any other purpose. To practice veganism, as Watson understood it, was to become a conscientious objector to the violence and injustice done to billions of animals every day all over the world.
