Vegan Collective is for anyone who wants to eat a balanced and healthy diet that is focussed on plant-based food. Established vegans avoid eating all foods of animal origin: meat, fish, dairy products, eggs, and honey. Veganism was originally defined purely as a dietary choice, but many vegans extend this ethic to shun animal testing and ingredients from all things they consume or wear, including clothing, shoes, personal care items, cosmetics, and medicine. At Vegan Collective we uphold the traditional approach to veganism but are keen to appeal to people who want to realise in whole or part the benefits of eating a plant-based diet without feeling freakishly looked down upon by the uninitiated mainstream.
There are many reasons why people become vegan so we have summarised the popular beliefs below as we feel it is likely that you as the reader may be considering using Vegan Collective for one or a combination of the following reasons:
1) Prevention of Animal Suffering
Most farm animals are raised on factory farms and experience appalling cruelties throughout their lives. Animal slaughter is invariably gory and disturbing to witness, and often the animals are clearly frightened and seem to know their death is imminent.
2) Health Benefits
A vegan diet can eliminate many of your diet’s most unhealthful foods, replacing them with delicious, nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, and nuts. In the excellent book How Not to Die by Michael Greger, M.D. just about all known chronic diseases can be reversed or treated by eating a plant-based diet.
3) Environmental Advantages
Given the staggering amounts of methane produced by livestock, a vegan diet may offer the easiest and most effective way to reduce our contribution to climate change. Vegan diets can also dramatically reduce the land that must be devoted to crops and to pasture, since raising farm animals is extraordinarily wasteful compared to growing crops directly for people.
We have researched all our products to the best of our knowledge by researching and contacting suppliers for products to be completely vegan-friendly before submitting to our website. Not all of the brands offer completely vegan products and we encourage you to check the ingredients and allergen information so that you are fully informed of any purchasing decisions.
