Going Vegan for 1 Day will:

John Merryfield and Phoenix at Farm Sanctuary, Orland, CA. Larger.
  • Save 2 BILLION animals globally (land and ocean)

  • 100 billion gallons of water, enough to supply all the homes in New England for almost 4 months

  • 70 million gallons of gas, enough to fuel all the cars of Canada and Mexico combined

  • 3 million acres, an area twice the size of Delaware

  • 4.5 million tons of animal excrement

  • 33 tons of antibiotics

  • Greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 1.2 million tons of CO2—as much as is produced by all of France in a single day.

For us, living vegan is a celebration of life. It's a joy to learn about and search for healthy, cruelty-free foods. Eating consciously is one of the greatest gifts we've given ourselves and the world around us. Whatever challenges you may encounter while going vegan (or even vegan-ish), if they are met with an adventurous spirit and a compassionate heart, they can easily be overcome. Know that you're not alone. We are with you and we are for you every step of the way!

Our food choices play a significant role, helping to solve some of our societies most urgent problems, like marine ecosystem collapse, climate change, poor human health and global violence.

Eating animal foods is the elephant in our living room that we all pretend not to see when discussing how we can change the world for the better.
