Why is choosing a vegan diet & lifestyle important?
"If you're an animal lover (as well as a dog lover), going vegan is one of the best things you can do to help end animal cruelty. By refusing to pay for animal products and by-products, you reduce demand for them, ensuring fewer animals are bred to suffer and die on farms and in slaughterhouses. We call ourselves a nation of animal lovers, yet every year in the UK alone, around 1,000 million animals are bred and killed for food. That’s around 2.7 million every single day. Most of them will have been reared in factory farms and slaughtered at just a few months or weeks old. (This staggering number doesn't include fish & marine life.)
Animals are treated by the farming and fishing industries as if they are unfeeling machines (commodities), alive only to generate maximum profit. But, each fish, chicken, lamb, cow or pig is a sentient being, capable of experiencing pain, fear, discomfort and distress." (Animal Aid)
We all make choices daily and one person really can make a huge difference in our world for the better.
