People choose to become vegan for various reasons, including concerns about animal welfare, environmental sustainability, and health benefits. Some adopt a vegan lifestyle to reduce animal suffering and exploitation in the food industry, while others are motivated by the environmental impact of animal agriculture, such as deforestation, greenhouse gas emissions, and water usage. Additionally, many people transition to a vegan diet for potential health benefits, such as reduced risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.

Veganism contributes to environmental sustainability by reducing the demand for animal agriculture, which is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, habitat destruction, and water pollution. Plant-based diets generally require fewer natural resources, such as land, water, and energy, compared to diets that include animal products. Transitioning to a vegan lifestyle can help mitigate environmental issues and promote a more sustainable food system.
