Seeking a Sense of Community & Belonging (Stage 6 of What Happens When You Stop Eating Animals)

Share this:

According to recent studies, the majority of people who become vegetarian / vegan go back to eating meat and animal products after a short time. One reason seems to be the lack of support or community. In today’s episode, we return to our 10 Stages of What Happens When You Stop Eating Animals / Become Vegan and focus on what I think is the make-or-break stage for people: Stage 6: Finding a Sense of Community and Belonging.
