While striving to change the laws and systems which allow farmed animals to suffer in factory farms, we’ve come to learn that choosing to leave animals off our plates is one of the most powerful ways to help shape the kinder world for animals that we dream of.
In our current food system – which we inherited from those before us – certain animals are valued only in terms of what they produce for us, instead of who they are. Farmed animals are sensitive, social animals with personalities as unique as the companion animals in our lives. They think and feel, and as I’m sure you would agree, they deserve to be spared from the suffering of legalised cruelty and slaughter.
As such, Animals Australia is the official Australian partner of Veganuary – an initiative inspiring people to opt for plant-based food for the month of January, and beyond, to create a better future for everyone.
