Make April the kindest month!
Be kind to yourself, to animals, and to the planet: go vegan for the month.

The Sugar Beet Vegan Committee invites you to take the Vegan Challenge!

Have you been thinking about embracing a more healthful, more humane, more sustainable way of eating? The Sugar Beet Vegan Committee is asking people to commit to eating a plant-based diet for the month of April. We'll be here to support you with information, food suggestions, resources, and personal experience.

Why try vegan?
A plant-based diet is better for your health. In fact, many of the most pernicious diseases of modern life, including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are associated with the consumption of animal products.

A plant-based diet is better for the planet. Climate change, CO2 emissions, rain forest destruction, pollution of land and water, ocean death, and species extinction are among the negative effects of animal agriculture.

A plant-based diet is better for the developing world. Rich nations consume more than their fair share of planetary resources to support their meat and dairy consumption, and native habitats in the developing world are destroyed to produce meat and dairy for wealthy consumers, not indigenous peoples. 

A plant-based diet is better for animals. Billions of animals live and die in horrifying circumstances to feed people's meat and dairy habits.
