Nature Rising is a non-political sustainability advocacy group that is part of an International Movement. They are bringing together individuals, experts, and organisations across Ireland concerned about the environment, health, and animal rights to put pressure on the government to stop the multi-billion euro subsidies that go to animal agriculture.
We all recognize the catastrophic, irreversible damage animal agriculture is already having on the planet and its inhabitants, but it’s unlikely that any one of us can force the government to stop funding it on our own. This is why Nature Rising exists – to unite us all in a single realistic achievable goal that has the potential for a major positive impact for people, animals and nature. To change everything we need everyone involved. Sign the Nature Rising petition and visit their website at http://naturerising.ie/.

No chemicals, no GMO and no animal by products in any part of the chain. The Vegan Organic Network is the only organisation in the UK solely working for food to be grown the veganic way.
