It is our responsibility to learn how we, individually and as a human collective, impact the world in which we live, each other, and our fellow residents here on earth including wildlife, farmed animals, and all other domesticated animals.

What is Veganism?
The Vegan Society defines veganism as:
"a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose."
What does this mean? This means that vegans do not consume meat, dairy, eggs, or other products that come from animals; they do not wear fur, leather, wool, or other animal-derived textiles; and they do not use products that are tested on animals.
Why Go Vegan?
There are many reasons why 2.5 million people have adopted a vegan lifestyle. The three major reasons are: for the animals, for the environment, and for personal health. Read more below to learn some quick facts about how veganism helps these three areas.
VEGAN FOR THE ANIMALS
99% of the meat consumed in America comes from CAFOs, or factory farms. In these factory farms, there is intense confinement, abuse, and untimely deaths, as well as disease and filth.
Every day you live a vegan lifestyle, you save one animal's life.
VEGAN FOR THE EARTH
There is enough food in the world to feed every starving person, however, millions of pounds of grain and millions of gallons of water go to producing livestock for a small amount of food.
VEGAN FOR HEALTH
A plant-based diet has been proven healthy, and lowers/eliminates the risk of many common illnesses including heart disease and high cholesterol.
Products like cow's milk have been marketed as essential to the human diet. However, it has been proven that milk does not contribute to the production of healthy bones, and rather causes high cholesterol and reproductive cancers.
Online Resource Guide: Coming Soon
In order to fully appreciate where the residents of Tamerlaine have come from and to advocate for those still suffering, we must take a look at the different ways nonhuman animals are exploited for food, clothing, and entertainment. Our online resource guide for humane education is currently in development. Please check this page in spring 2019.
As we develop our resource guide, email us directly, anytime, with questions about our work, animal agriculture, veganism or any related topics. We are here to provide as many resources as possible.
