Veganism Is A Way Of Life

Find everything you need to embrace the lifestyle.

Veganism is more than what we eat. It’s who we are and how we care for others. It’s about compassion and justice. It’s about kindness and peace. It’s about treading lightly.

It’s about the animals.

Veganism Explained

From food to fashion, there’s a lot to know.

We use animals in millions of ways, and some are more obvious than others. Removing animal products from your life isn’t impossible, but it does take some knowledge and practice.

You are going to have questions. We have the answers. We’ll show you how to live a compassionate life through vegan living.

Let us inspire you.

The Pearl-spotted Owlet

The Pearl-spotted Owlet is a tiny bird with a rounded head and no ear-tufts who lives in Africa, south of the Sahara. The name comes from the two pearl-like spots above the shoulders. This distinctive pattern is often described as “eye-spots” or “false-eyes” and helps the owlet escape predators by appearing larger than it really is.

Right now, the Pearl-spotted owlet is widespread and not threatened by the usual degradation of habitat and deforestation. However, the western populations are less abundant and appear more vulnerable to changes in habitat and food resources. You can help this and other species of owls by planting trees, saving old-growth trees from being cut down, not using chemical treatments on your property, and living vegan.
