30-Day Vegan Pledge!

What's a Vegan?
A vegan is someone who doesn't eat any animal-derived products whatsoever. This includes meat, fish, poultry, dairy products, eggs, honey, and animal byproducts such as gelatin and whey. Vegans also don't wear any clothing that comes from animals—this means anything made of fur, wool, silk, or leather.

You love animals, right? Well, did you know that the best way to save animals is by going vegan? By cutting meat and dairy products from your diet, you'll be saving the lives of more than 100 animals a year.

Ever wonder where that meat on your plate comes from? The answer is factory farms. Animals on factory farms suffer terribly before they show up in neat, tidy packages at the grocery store, your favorite restaurant, or a fast-food joint. They live in extremely crowded, filthy conditions and suffer through painful procedures such as branding, dehorning, debeaking, and having their tails cut off and their teeth sawed off—all without being given any painkillers. Animals are also given drugs to make them grow quickly, but often they grow so quickly that their hearts and legs cannot keep up—they have heart attacks, or their legs become painfully deformed. When factory-farmed animals are carted off to slaughter, they're crammed onto trucks. After animals arrive at the slaughterhouse, they're hung upside down and their throats are cut, often while they're still conscious.

More than 27 billion animals are slaughtered for food each year in the U.S. alone. That's hard to believe considering that the world's human population is just under 7 billion.

Animals value their lives as much as you value yours. So do your best not to eat them. Make the switch to a compassionate, healthy lifestyle today by taking this 30-day vegan pledge. After 30 days of living meat- and dairy-free, you'll feel so great that you just might turn 30 days into a lifetime. (Animals have their fingers crossed.)

This can be use for playing a single video on PV2.

When you're done taking your pledge, be sure to pass this on to your friends and family members and ask them to go vegan too.
