Many Hawaiians will likely be looking for more vegan recipes and meatless meal ideas thanks to Tiffany Hervey’s informative article, “Meat: Less is More” (Nov. 21). By going vegan, readers can help combat climate change, conserve resources and save lives.

Each vegan saves more than 100 animals every year, and vegans are less likely to suffer from heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other common chronic illnesses. Plus, versatile vegan foods are inexpensive and delicious. PETA is always happy to provide people with free recipes, product suggestions, information on vegan-friendly restaurants and more.
