From a consumer’s perspective

Why do consumers consider buying veganic produce?


Protecting animals

Monday 25 February 2008

While many organic farms use animals products like manure and blood meal as fertilizers, veganic farms do not include any animal products in their growing practices. For those who are concerned about animal protection, choosing veganic food is one more way to express this ethic.



Protecting the environment

Monday 25 February 2008

A report by the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation concludes that the world’s livestock industry generates 18% of greenhouse gas emissions, which is even more than the transportation sector. The use of animals in agriculture, as a whole, also leads to water contamination, topsoil loss, and decreased biodiversity. Veganic agriculture uses animal-free techniques, greatly reducing CO2 emissions and environmental contaminants.



Think global, eat local veganic

Tuesday 22 April 2008

Supporting local veganic farmers not only helps to reduce your ecological footprint, it also creates a viable livelihood for the farmers, and it responds to the problems surrounding globalized agriculture.



Eating 100% organic food

Sunday 1 June 2008

Organic food is frequently grown using animal waste, but these animals have often been exposed to pesticides, chemicals, antibiotics, and hormones (except for a small number of farmers who source their manure from organically-raised animals or raise animals on their own farm). With veganic agriculture, it is possible for the farmer to keep the cycle of agriculture 100% organic, by growing food with organic plant-based techniques.
