As Kiwi breakfast show host Duncan Garner prepares to begin his new life as a vegan, making good on his promise to go vegan for a year if Labour won the 2020 election, PETA has sent him a hamper from The Cruelty Free Shop filled with vegan bacon, burgers, chocolate, mayonnaise, butter, and more!
More and more New Zealanders are going vegan for the sake of their health, the environment, and animals. The nation’s interest in vegan living has doubled in the last five years, and it now ranks fifth in the world for its interest in all things vegan.
Millions of animals endure unimaginable suffering and death every year in New Zealand for the meat, dairy, and egg industries. Meanwhile, the United Nations advises that a global shift towards a vegan lifestyle is necessary to combat climate change. According to a study by the Ministry for the Environment, almost half of New Zealanders say they now recognise that a change in diet can have an impact on the environment.
We congratulate Mr Garner on taking the most important step in any compassionate individual’s life. We’re sure the year ahead will bring great personal growth as he sheds the toxic ideology of speciesism – and realises that no one needs to exploit animals to live a healthy, happy life.
