At Vegan Street, we tell thought-provoking and inspirational stories and create beautiful and compelling images. We love to share great stories and pictures, but that's not why we do this. Frankly, we want to change the world. In fact, all our work is created to help usher in one of the most profound and essential cultural shifts the world has ever known.

Every year, more than 55 billion land animals are killed for food. Besides the horrendous brutality and waste of life, this diet is killing our planet and destroying our health. So we're trying to expand the vegan culture and community as well as shift the collective consciousness away from conceptualizing other animals as ours to use.

We feel the best way we can make this happen is to create practical but artistic and creative works that help people become and stay vegan, by nurturing, strengthening and promoting the vegan lifestyle and community. 

We do this by producing and posting our popular Vegan Street Memes, which are mini-posters that describe the various reasons to become and stay vegan. We also write essays on the Vegan Street Blog that explore various aspects of vegan life and thought, sometimes satirically, sometimes seriously. And to continue our community building tradition, we provide original and easy (and delicious!) recipes, eco-friendly home, personal care and vegan living tips, book, product and film reviews, interviews with a diversity of figures in the vegan movement and much more.

We put it all out there for for free so people can use and share it as they wish. Collectively, these works have been shared millions of times, and many people and organizations have used our memes, essays, recipes and other posts to help them articulate their own views to others and persuade their audiences to consider a shift towards veganism. These materials are used in everything from virtual outreach to presentations, public display to educational materials and more. 

By getting support from our community, we'll be able to devote even more of our attention to this important work, and even expand into more areas.

With your help, we can keep sending our compelling vegan messages into the world.

We create, produce and share a prodigious amount of effective and engaging content each week and have since 2013. This content we provide is free and it takes a lot of time - planning, researching, creating - to produce. This level of support would help to cover the time we spend on crafting our materials and allow us to keep producing work at the level we're going and perhaps even more.
