PETA is excited to announce that our brand-new vegetarian/vegan starter kit is now available to help make the move to a plant-based diet even easier. Full of tips for making the transition, quotes from animal-loving celebrities and yummy recipes, the vegetarian/vegan starter kit is a useful tool for anyone making the switch to a cruelty-free diet.
A vegan diet doesn’t just prevent cruelty to animals – it’s better for your health and the environment, too.
Vegan foods are free from cholesterol and tend to be low in saturated fat and high in fibre, complex carbohydrates and vitamins. And it takes around one-third less land and water – and 10 times fewer fossil fuels – to produce plant-based foods than animal-based ones. The United Nations has stated that a global shift towards a vegan diet is necessary to combat against the worst effects of climate change.
Factory farms pack tens of thousands of animals into areas so cramped that they have little room to move and routinely mutilate them without any anaesthetics. Pigs, chickens and turkeys are kept in massive sheds for their whole lives. The first time that they feel sunlight on their backs is when they are loaded onto a truck bound for the slaughterhouse.
Each vegan spares more than 100 animals every year. So order your free copy of the PETA vegetarian/vegan starter kit and find out how to make delicious, nutritious and cruelty-free vegan food today.
