THE CHOICE IS YOURS

Let’s unite to inspire mindful, vegetarian and vegan lifestyle choices.

OUR VISION

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Very Veggie Movement aims to unite people around the causes of animal rights and environmental protection through gentle, shared lifestyle changes.

To do so, we’re developing partnerships with outstanding organizations that share our hopes of inspiring a better, healthier future, and developing ways to make vegetarianism easy, accessible, and fun. We are also working at the grassroots level through in-person events as well as online and social media discussions to raise awareness, create an open dialogue regarding vegetarianism, and provide information and support.

The Very Veggie Movement, an initiative of Tzu Chi USA, adheres to the teachings of our founder, the venerable Dharma Master Cheng Yen, who guides us to live in harmony with the Earth. One way we do so is through the adoption of a mindful, vegetarian diet, showing sincere love and reverence for not only Mother Earth, but all who share this magnificent planet with us.
