About VSA Utrecht

-

VSA Utrecht was started July 2020 with one goal: to build a supportive community for vegan-minded students. We never expected the overwhelmingly positive response we received! VSA Utrecht is now an association with more than 90 members and four committees. We are very proud to call ourselves an inclusive and welcoming community to everyone, no matter your current lifestyle!

Why Veganism?

You can eat plant-based for many different reasons, the ones we stand for are for the environment and the animals. The environment: The meat, diary and egg industry is responsible for more green house gases emissions than all transportation combined. Switching to a plant-based diet is the single best thing you can do for the environment. The animals: We can all agree that killing and harming another being is bad, but we somewhere along the way lost that connecting with the animals we consume. When it comes to milk, cows just like any other mammal produces milk for her baby, for us humans to be able to drink her milk, we take away her baby after he or she is born. A bit of a Dumbo situation. Okay but what's wrong with eggs? Hens lay eggs to get babies. When humans started taking away her eggs, her body had no choice than to produce more since she of course want to have her babies. Hens naturally lays around 12 eggs a year, now, after years and years of humans stealing her eggs, they lay around 300 a year and their natural system is now fully corrupt.  

We have weekly events in and around Utrecht. Our events are centered around veganism, vegan food, sustainability, animal rights and equality.
