Animal Aid

Veggie & Vegan

If you really care about animals, the best way you can help is to stop eating them! Each year in the UK alone approximately 1,000 million animals are farmed and killed for food - and that figure doesn't include fish.

Campaign Resources

The average meat-eater consumes around 11,000 animals in their lifetime (including fish and shellfish). Think of all the lives YOU will save simply by turning vegetarian or vegan! As well as being more humane, an animal-free diet is healthy, environmentally friendly and a better way to use the world's precious resources. By cutting out animal products you'll be doing so much good - for animals, your health, the planet and for other people, too.
