The Very Veggie Movement aims to unite society around the cause of animal rights, environmental protection, and public health. We believe that if together we can make the transition to a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, we can…
- save millions of animals every year
- reduce the environmental impact of animal farming
- minimize the outbreak of the next animal-borne disease*
- … and so much more!
*The origin of COVID-19 is believed to be connected to an open-air wet market, where live animals are killed and sold for food.
The Very Veggie Movement is an initiative of Tzu Chi USA, a humanitarian and disaster relief organization that abides by the principles of its founder, Dharma Master Cheng Yen. Her guidance urges each of us to live a life rooted in compassion, mindfulness, and love for one another and the magnificent earth on which we live.
Transform your diet into a vegetarian or vegan one with the help of the Very Veggie Movement.
THE CHOICE IS YOURS
Our movement lets you decide for how long you’ll commit to a vegetarian diet.
