The time to go vegan is NOW!
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the vegan movement is more important than ever to help our beautiful Mother Earth thrive. Veganism is not only healthy for your mind and body, but it’s just as important to save our planet.
So what exactly does vegan mean?
According to the Vegan Society, veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.
The vegan movement is all about compassion for ourselves, our friends (both mankind and animal-kind), and our planet Earth.
No matter what your reasons are, adopting veganism is one of the single best decisions you can make for the animals, your health, and for our environment which in turn allows us all to reap the rewards of this positive lifestyle.
Eating plants for your health and wellbeing is a great step in the right direction. Taking the vegan leap is a no brainer and actors, athletes, and entertainers are all jumping on board the vegan bandwagon for all of the right reasons.
“It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal”, said by the famous, animal rights activist and of course, legendary movie star, Joaquin Phoenix. If you haven’t seen him in the news lately, you haven’t been paying attention. His advocacy is helping the vegan movement with his influence and passion for all living things.

Vegan athletes are all the rage and entire teams are going vegan for strength, endurance, and recovery benefits.
- Colin Kaepernick is a vegan NFL Football League player who is known to kneel against police brutality of black men, but he is also known for so much more. In 2017 he appeared on the cover (again) of GQ magazine, this time named Citizen of the Year. He’s a proud vegan for the animals and fighting not only for human rights, but everyone’s (animals included) rights. He started the Colin Kaepernick Foundation, a nonprofit organization to fight oppression of all kinds globally through education and social activism.
- Lewis Hamilton is a vegan Formula 1 race car driver for Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team. A six time world champion, Hamilton took up the vegan lifestyle to improve energy dips, get healthy, and help his environment. He’s spoke publicly on the pollution contribution and cruelty of animal agriculture, wanting to be a part of the change that we all need to make.
- Venus Williams, a tennis professional, is a vegan advocate, champion of Wimbledon Grand Slam titles, and even has a few Olympic gold medals to boot. Her equally famous rival, pro athlete, and sister, Serena Williams is a vegan also. These two rock the worldwide professional tennis circuit and have for years.

Shop at vegan owned websites and stores. Stop purchasing leather and furs. Make the ethical and worthwhile difference. The vegan alternative leather and fur industry is booming.

Truth Belts is launching a new vegan belt on Kickstarter (June 22 to July 16, 2020) that is virtually indestructible and nickel-free (for those of you who have allergies).

And, it lasts a long time.”
Cruelty free and environmentally viable, what more could you ask for?
Vegan fashion is on the rise and becoming more popular, once again promoted by famous celebrities. Singer, song writer, actress, and hardcore vegan activist Miley Cyrus promotes her compassion everywhere she can. “I want to bring a message, which is veganism and that there doesn’t have to be torture in fabulous fashion.”
By the wise words of Woody Harrelson, “In this world that is spinning madly out of control, we have to realize that we’re all related. We have to try to live harmoniously.”
