An agreegan is someone who agrees with veganism but has looser rules for themselves, so they are technically not vegan. An agreegan will have a mostly plant-based diet, preferring vegan food when available but have their own exceptions unique to life style, social dynamics, availability and avoiding food waste. Agreegans tend to admire the dedication of vegans and support the vegan movement but are less strict on themselves and may disagree with some minor aspects of veganism.
Agreeganism is a philosophy that acknowledges that now that we are in the 21st century, vegan principles are extremely important and ethically correct. This is primarily due to the atrocious conditions of factory farms and the environmental cost and destruction animal products cause compared to plant-based products. Agreegans value awareness and personal responsibility over the ignorance is bliss mentality of the masses and the standard American diet.
What we buy and eat has the biggest influence on the world than anything else we do. It is the single most important way we influence our health, the environment, other sentient beings and our spirituality. Therefore what we choose to eat should be in alignment with our personal belief of what kind of world we want to live in. Agreegans and vegans share their beliefs with others because we are all in this together. Consuming animal products is such a destructive act with victims, so it's something that effects us all.
This is an important movement of our time because of the devastating health, environmental and ethical destruction caused by the ignorance of eating a standard American diet known as carnism. Now that we live in the 21st century where we have access to scientifically research nutritional information stating that a plant-based vegan diet is more healthy than a carnist diet, an agreegan diet provides a way to escape the ignorance and mental cage known as the Meatrix, without the level of sacrifice and strictness required to be vegan. The animal agriculture industry has spent billions to create a false image of meat and dairy that plagues our society. Agreeganism is the declaration that the individual is aware of this and is taking steps to reject carnism and animal agriculture. By doing so an agreegan makes a positive stand for their health, society, the animals, the environment and the world.
