Go Vegan has one single purpose; to grow the vegan population of New Zealand.
Not free-range, not organic, not vegetarian – vegan.
We do this by providing vegan education, supporting those interested in veganism and by supplying free resources to vegan advocates.
We rely on sponsorship and your donations. We also offer a growing selection of printed material for you to download and print at home. Follow us on Facebook to keep in touch with projects and news.
Make use of this site by sharing your flyer artwork, adding events, or asking questions. You can also become a vegan advocate; we are seeking pro-active people in all regions and will supply banners, flyers and booklets free to successful applicants.
There are about 193 million vegans around the world.
A further 407 million are meat-free.
Now, more than ever before, we aware of our impact on the world around us. We have an urgent need to protect the environment and animals that suffer as products of industry. As science educates us on the human body, we’ve discovered eating animal products can inhibit wellness. Studies show veganism can satisfy the nutritional requirements of the whole family (including high-performance athletes, pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers). They also reveal that veganism can provide health benefits, particularly to diabetics and those with heart conditions.
There is a pragmatic solution to feed our booming population. Plant-based food can be produced in more sustainable, resource-efficient ways, while protecting the water, soil and air, and providing optimum nutrition to all. We can eat well and honour that like us animals also suffer and thrive here; they have just as much right to be free as we do. Unfortunately the problems with farming are inherent. Animals have no rights, and are traded and treated as property. Just as humans are harmed when they traded and treated as property, the same follows for animals.
