If we save the living environment, the biodiversity that we have left today, then we will also automatically save the physical environment. If we only save the physical environment, then we will ultimately lose both.
— E. O. Wilson

Our core guiding principle:

Compassion for all creation is infinitely sustainable...


A global adoption of a simple, vegan lifestyle...


exemplifies compassion for all creation in all our actions...


A global transition to a simple, vegan lifestyle allows for massive carbon sequestration through rewilding of the planet


Through an Earth Systems Model (ESM), the Integrated Science Assessment Model (ISAM), we estimate that 265 GtC can be sequestered on just the 41% of grasslands that used to be forests prior to human intervention for livestock production. That is more carbon than the 240 GtC that were added to the atmosphere since the industrial era began in 1750!

A truly compassionate lifestyle leads to conscious simplicity...


and restores equity in human societies.


To live a simple vegan lifestyle is to live sustainably

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
