Vegan Society of Australia

People & Community | Engagement

The Vegan Society of Australia exists to support and encourage vegans in Australia. A Vegan is one who strives to live through the Active Ethics of consumption of products from vegetable and mineral sources only. This means an absence of any products that are derived from animals or animal by-products. There is one exception to this rule, and that is when a human actively donates a product to another human, as in breast-feeding. Vegans exclude from their lifestyle: meat, fish, chicken, fowl, eggs, milk, cheese, ice cream, yoghurt, gelatine, honey, whey, wool, silk, leather or other animal derivatives. Think of any aspect of life that uses animals and the Vegan is seeking a way to avoid that exploitation. Some do so for health reasons, others due to concerns over the environment, while still others ponder how our inhumanity to animals affects us spiritually and emotionally. There are Vegans for social justice reasons and also to equalize global resource allocation.
