People often ask why I’m vegan, and I usually sum it up with a three part answer: I’m vegan for my health, the environment and the animals. I’ve found this is a common answer among many vegans because it’s a very succinct way in answering such a complex question.
We had a new member at our vegan book club this past month and she shared this wonderful video with me that encapsulates my three-prong answer. I love how there are no graphic images yet it still conveys a powerful message. Although I feel like the undercover videos are extremely important for animal rights, I think it’s also good to have videos like this one that can be shown to a wide audience.
I want to hear from you: if you’re vegan, how do you answer this question, “Why are you vegan?”
