As vegans living a plant-based lifestyle we are all on the same team spreading the same message. No matter your perspective or vantage point, we are all here to create good in this world. By choosing a plant-based diet you have identified something that you value you have declared you want to make changes that improve your life and/or the lives of others in some way. We admire each and every person that makes the commitment and declares they want more for themselves. 

Just like individuals, there are many organizations that have formed out there that are doing some amazing things for the plant-based community. These organizations are out there everyday fighting the good fight. they are fighting for a healthier, cleaner and better life. 

The efforts of these organizations should not go un-noticed. We want to highlight some of the organizations out there that are powerhouses in the plant-based spaces. Some of the ones that are doing such amazing things to make our world a better place. 

As always we do our best to support their efforts as much as possible but we also encourage you to get behind these organizations. We are all part of the same team and together we can change the world.
