Vegan For Environment | Ask Vegans Anything | Totally Vegan Buzz
Ask Vegans AnythingCategory: QuestionsI consider myself vegan, but my main motivation is the environmental impacts of animal agriculture, such as pollution, deforestation, and greenhouse gases. I understand that when people avoid animal products for health reasons it’s considered plant based rather than vegan, but what about environmental motivations? I still consider myself vegan because for me it is an ethical stance, but I’m curious about others opinions on this. Personally, animal cruelty is my secondary reason for being vegan, but if I didn’t care about that and my only reason was the environment would I still be considered vegan?

Animals – health – environment. All these reasons are equally important. Be vegan and stay that way. If you dont really believe in the animal rights issues, you will never become a fully fledged vegan activist…which would be a shame. Best wishes with your love and kindness!

Why do you ‘need’ to be considered anything ??? Do what you feel is right, do what you want to. Does it matter ‘how’ you do it or for what reason ?? Does it matter how you ‘label’ yourself. I guarantee you are doing more good than you think, feel proud about that and dont overthink the labels.
