Introducing...
WE CHEWS VEGAN
Together, Eat the Change

VEGANUARY is almost here and with good news! Coordinators of this timely mission are excited to break records for signups! The registrations to dish up a vegan/plant-based journey for one month have increased from 12,800 people (2015) to over 582,000 (2021)! The environmental impact alone - of thousands of people eating less meat - is astounding.

But, hey! What about our dog's daily dinner? Here are the two questions we ask at Virchew: "What if we added our dog's diet to this impact? " + "What if together, with our dogs, we can EAT the change?"

 

So we decided it's high time to raise our paws for Veganuary! During the month of January, we're super excited to highlight some of our furiends and their hoomans as they share their "Why We Chews Vegan" stories.

 

Chew on this - a revealing study suggests that meaty pet foods are a significant contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions. In the USA alone, up to 70 million tons of carbon are released annually from the production and consumption of pet food. Did you know that according to UCLA Professor Gregory Okin, meat-eating dogs and cats account for 25% - 30% of the environmental impact of meat consumption in the USA? (Bow. Wow.)

 

More to chew facts: Based on the vegan calculator if you eschew animal-based products for one month you would save: the lives of 30 animals, 913 square feet of forest, and 33,481 gallons of water - that's just for starters! Then, imagine if even 20% of the environmental impact was reduced just by choosing plant-based food for your dog's dinner for a month - what a massive difference it would make! And, that's just the climate impact. 

By living vegan or at least more plant-based with your dogs (and families) there are so many benefits, both tangible and intangible, words can hardly describe them. 

Watch our newsletters and social media posts during the month to be pooch and plant-based inspired!

Not only because of all the hoomans that attended but for the love and energy that the doggos brought to the Virchew HQ.

 

It has always been our dream for the HQ to be 'the' place for dog (and animal-lovers) to gather as a community, be comfy, be informed, and be welcomed with open arms and tasty treats. It felt so right to finally be able to open the doors and welcome all the love in!

 

Everyone had a barkin' blast and while our 'Get Your Wings' photo booths had puppers queueing for their turn to become Virchew Angels, the hoomans talked plant-based food, achieving perfect poops, and what the future holds for our dogs, our planet, and the growth of Virchew.

 

We would like to extend an invitation to all those who just couldn't fit our event into their calendars, to book a time to visit Virchew HQ before the holidays and turn their furry friends into Virchew Angels! And, while you're there, enjoy tasty plant-based snacks, grab a cuppa of warm tea or latte, and sign-up for a FREE Sample of Virchew's Love Bowl (especially if you're fur love has not had a chance to go mutts over Virchew, yet.
