The American Vegan Society is a nonprofit educational membership
organization teaching a compassionate way of living that includes
Together we explore and apply compassionate living concepts, and
reflect on them and ourselves. We learn how to revere the Earth,
how to save the animals, and how to care for ourselves. People follow
a vegan lifestyle for ethical reasons, for health, for the environment.
The vegan diet excludes flesh, fish, fowl, dairy products (animal
milk, butter, cheese, yogurt, etc.), eggs, honey, animal gelatin,
and all other foods of animal origin. It is an adventure in taste;
and displays an amazing variety, the fundamentals of which are vegetables,
grains, fruits, legumes, nuts and seeds. Foods from plants best
provide for all people in the world.
Vegans exclude products of cruelty such as leather, wool, fur,
and silk, in clothing, upholstery, etc. They dress with care. Fashion
with compassion is the style.
The society motto is: Ahimsa lights the way.
Introductory package ($3.00) includes sample copy of American Vegan
(our quarterly magazine) and Veganism: Getting Started (an 8½x11,
28 page primer in Veganism).
