1. Saving Animals  

Farmed animals make up the vast majority of animals abused by humans. Going vegan spares the lives of about 30 farmed animals each year and countless wild animals, including endangered species
2. Protecting the Environment 


Animal agriculture produces more greenhouse gases than all forms of transportation in the world combined! Factory farms also pollute waterways and destroy air quality, making eating vegan one of the best ways to protect our planet
3. Saving Money 


Some of the most affordable foods on the planet are rice, beans, legumes, pasta, and all kinds of fruits and veggies, making eating vegan a great way to save money! Click here for a list of budget-friendly vegan recipes. 
4. Amazing Food 

For most people, eating vegan expands their palates and opens up a whole new world of flavors they might never have tried otherwise. BONUS: There are delicious vegan versions of all your favorite foods! 
5. Living Longer 

According to a large-scale study of 73,000 Americans, eating a vegetarian diet promotes longevity. Study participants who followed a plant-based diet had an early mortality rate 20 percent lower than study participants who consumed meat! 
6. Awesome People 

Vegans are some of the most talented, intelligent, and compassionate people alive. Join a vegan Meetup, go to a vegan potluck, or attend other veg events close to you and make new friends.
