All About VeganStart.org
Welcome to VeganStart.org, an exciting new vegan project! We came online on December 4th, 2014.
Our focus is two-fold:
To make is easy for people to try out vegan living.
To provide activists and advocates with an simple approach when encouraging people to give vegan eating a try.
As we build our website, you’ll find help with veganizing breakfast meals, recipes, tips for spicing up your common breakfast choices, plus PDF leaflets for activists to print and distribute, and an option to simply order leaflets. We’ll also direct you to further options when you’re ready to take the next step in veganism.
We’re looking forward to serving you, please show your interest and support by joining our social media options on the left!
