Are Manchester students doing Vegan January 2020?

Share This Property:

I have always thought about becoming a vegetarian as I have held the belief that I could never kill an animal in order to eat it. Could you?

Ive been listening to Joey Carbstrong podcasts -and he put it simply. His message is, if you care about animal welfare you shouldn’t consume animals. I have always considered myself an ‘animal lover’ and after listening to this message and watching the “the land of hope and glory’ film, I have found that eating meat and animal products a very perplexing and uncomfortable issue for myself.

According to

“In the UK alone we slaughter around one billion land animals every year for meat, dairy and eggs.”

I am shocked to learn of that high number. I have not eaten meat since the 3rd January ( so only 5 days). I am still consuming  dairy and eggs but will try and faze these two food groups at some stage. I do hope to become fully vegan, but for me I will try with vegetarianism and progress from there.

If you are considering becoming vegan, please visit the PETA website and Joey Carbstrong website – they both contain some confronting content but both a good source of information. &
