Welcome to Planetary Vegan.

The aim of the site is to remove blinkers and blind spots concerning our treatment of animals and the planet that have resulted from social, cultural and commercial conditioning. It also considers human rights issues.

Planetary Vegan effectively replaced the Terrastendo site, and contains many links to it.

The articles section contains material going back to 2012, while the letters and papers go back to 2008. The most recent items shown here are from August and October 2019. We’re working on a new series of articles that will be launched before year end.

Some thoughts

“Truth is so rare that it is delightful to tell it.”
Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“. . . if we could recognise who we really are, rather than beings who were magically and separately created from the rest of nature, and if we could come to grips with that reality, then maybe we could be aroused from the stupor that we find ourselves in and begin to save ourselves.”
Ann Druyan

“Move from fear and survival to fascination and creation.”
Justine Damond Ruszczyk
