When we first tell people we are Vegan and live a sustainable life, the first question we always get is, WHY? The question should not be why we are but, why are you not! Our journey all started with chronic headaches. We started doing researching on how natural ways to get rid of headaches. Article after article we discovered that eating habits had a huge part of this. So, we switched out diet to a Vegan diet. As our journey and research continued, we realized how bad it was for the environment to eat meat (and honestly just horrible to learn how farms are raising and producing our meat). That turned into learning about the plastic issue in our oceans, to the climate issue, to waste issues. We saw the problem and decided we were not going to be part of the problem but, part of the change!
