I was vegetarian since age 25 (40 years ago). My youngest daughter embraced veganism and helped me see the environmental impact of the dairy and egg industries of which I was unaware and how companies use words like "humanely raised" and "free range" to deceive the consumer (me) into thinking those animal products were not causing harm or suffering. After seeing a documentary about animal
sanctuaries and reading Will Tuttle's, The World Peace Diet, I embraced veganism in 2019 and it is now part of my spiritual practice. I started an ethical vegan group at my Unity spiritual center called Compassionate Choices which meets monthly and I do a weekly Face Book and e-newsletter post for the spiritual center.
