The goal of both events is to bring veganism closer to visitors as a compassionate way of life with which we do not give up anything (especially not delicious food) but gain a lot. Namely, the vegan movement is also connected with sustainable living, care for our planet, ecology and animal protection.
„Veganism, in many ways, benefits the animals, the environment and our health as it implies a healthier diet and lifestyle. It has been proven that a diet with whole and varied foods of exclusively plant origin helps the gut microbiome, reduces inflammations, lowers higher cholesterol and high blood pressure, enhances the immune system and reduces the risk for many chronic diseases such as coronary and heart diseases, diabetes type 2, strokes and certain types of cancer. It is no wonder that more and more people choose to remove animal original products from their diet and cosmetics. Increase of vegan products is also visible to everyone and we are very happy that we will be able to present all of this turning the European Square into a real small green, compassionate and healthy oasis”, Animal Friends Croatia state.
