The most important thing you can do to help farmed animals, like those who reside at Animal Place, is to switch to a strict vegetarian (vegan) diet. By going vegan, you empower yourself as a consumer not to support, or benefit from, the cruel practices of factory farming.
Consider this: For every one person that switches to a vegetarian lifestyle more than1,500 animals are saved –the average number of animals consumed by just one person in their lifetime!
And, by adopting a vegan diet you not only help the animals, you also help yourself. Numerous nutritional studies have proven that vegan diets are typically more healthful than those that include meat and dairy.
Going vegan is also a powerful way to help the environment. Animal agriculture pollutes our land and air, is one of the leading causes of deforestation worldwide, and is an incredibly inefficient use of our planet’s precious resources.
