Turnip the beet, it’s World Vegan Day!
Since 1994, the 1st of November has marked the annual celebration of veganism across the globe, providing an opportunity to bring light to the diet’s nutritional, ethical and environmental benefits.
For those not familiar, the vegan diet eliminates all animal products, including meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, and dairy.
Why go vegan?
Many of us know the environmental and ethical benefits to minimising or eliminating animal-based foods. Animal agriculture is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and land clearing; while industrial farming has commodified livestock leading to increased animal cruelty. Even the term livestock relates to living stock, a testament to their commodification. Beyond that, our typical Western diet is one of excess, with animal product consumption being no exception. Most of us can afford to reduce our intake of animal products, for the betterment of ourselves and the planet.
Morlife stock a bunch of vegan-friendly products that help support nutrition and minimise the risk of deficiency for those committed to a vegan diet. Even for those who aren’t, these products still make a great addition to everyday meals.
