Each and every one of them was an individual with needs, desires and personality. It is about their right to moral personhood. You don’t even have to care, it is about justice – Link

Thank You!

We appreciate you sparing a moment to think about how we view animals. Keep in mind that it isn’t up to the suppliers, the retailers, or the farmers to change the status quo of animals. It is up to us, the consumers. We hold all the power. We vote for the world we want by the purchases we make. Please use your power wisely and enhance the lives of animals through ethical decisions.

You are welcome to contact me to get more information about becoming an Elated Vegan.

Warm regards
