Making Sustainable Food Choices
We, at HappyCow, are dedicated to promoting a sustainble lifestyle and fostering a supportive space for people from all walks of life to come together and discuss about subjects that matter (Eco-Vegan): health, happiness, community, open exchange, food, the environment.
On the subject of environment and climate change, does what we eat make a difference? To that we say, "Absolutely!" Because our ecosystem is so inter-connected, the everyday food choices we make matter. Learn more about how you too can become a good steward for our earth planet; read about what our members are doing to make an impact.
