POLL: Should Vegans promote the REDUCETARIAN approach?

POLL: Should Vegans promote the REDUCETARIAN approach?

2015-11-23 
| by Editor | Posted in Polls

The reducetarian approach – namely a reduction of animal products from one’s diet – has gained plenty of publicity recently with founder Brian Kateman setting up this website www.reducetarian.com on the subject and a number of key individuals (vegans and pre-vegans alike) getting behind the whole concept.

 

 

Those not yet vegan find the reducetarian approach easy to relate to and advocate to others as a first step towards veganism. The reducetarian approach is also beneficial for individual health, the environment and food production too.

However, those already vegan who are advocating the reducetarian concept have drawn criticism for watering down the vegan ethos and further encouraging speciesism against non-human animals.

 

Should vegans be promoting reducetarian as an option for pre-vegans?

Or should vegans make it loud and clear without compromise that 100% veganism is a moral imperative, and anything less implies supporting continued animal exploitation?

 

Vote now in our new poll below (closing Friday Dec 11th at 6pm):

 

Make sure to join in The Big Discussion on the same subject at Vegfest Scotland – to be hosted on Sunday Dec 6th at 4pm at the Activists Summit.
