Eugene Veg Education Network (EVEN) – Resources

“What does a person need to know about veganism/vegetarianism—the environment—the humane treatment of animals—to make it part of their life?

The 2nd thing we need to know then is how to go veg. EVEN has tried to address both these issues on this site several times over in different categories. It’s important enough that it bears repeating in order to bring clarity to a new frame of reference.
