Student Vegans United

Student Vegans United promotes a plant-based diet to help end deforestation and protect the environment, feed starving people in other countries, end cruelty to animals, and encourage people to be as happy and healthy as possible. Vegan or not, all allies are welcome. We are simply trying to make the world a more sustainable place so we can continue to live on our little blue planet!
