Vegetarianism

Going veggie is probably the single most effective thing anyone can do to help stop animal suffering. It’s simple – if you don’t eat them, then they don’t suffer and die.

The great thing is it’s really easy to change to an animal-friendly diet. It’s also a great way to help save the environment, help feed people around the world and last but not least, it’s healthier for you!
