Vegan Ireland: The Vegan Society of Ireland

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Vegan Ireland: The Vegan Society of Ireland is a nonprofit and voluntary organisation formed by a group of vegans concerned with "the promotion of the vegan philosophy and ethics in Ireland".[1] It was formed in 2009.[2]

Inspired by the original Vegan Society (UK),[citation needed] Vegan Ireland published a mission statement[3] which aims to offer support and information to people interested in veganism; to promote and increase awareness of veganism as a just, healthy and environmentally beneficial lifestyle choice; raise awareness of the rights violations and exploitation involved with the production of animal based products; research information relevant to a vegan lifestyle and where appropriate to publish this information, lobby for manufacturers to use non-animal based materials in their products; support and promote real science and reject vivisection on moral and scientific grounds; promote respect towards all animals, human or nonhuman, and the environment by appropriate means; and develop and maintain positive relationships with organisations with compatible aims and objectives to Vegan Ireland.[citation needed]

In August 2012, press officer Roger Yates published an opinion and analysis piece in The Irish Times,[4] which led to a series of radio appearances.
