People are choosing a vegan or plant-based diet for many reasons: it’s good for your health, it’s good for the environment, and it’s good for the animals.

Why plant-based? Why now?

People choose a plant-based or fully vegan diet for many reasons. It’s better for your health, it’s better for the environment, and most importantly for many, it’s better for the animals.

The link between what’s on our plates and how it actually got there hasn’t just been blurred; it’s been buried. But people are waking up and uncovering the truth and we’re in the midst of a plant-based revolution of sorts. With increasingly more people waking up to the fact that animal agriculture isn’t sustainable, there’s also an influx of people who just don’t know how to change their habits. How do we educate them, while also assisting them in living a plant-based, sustainable, eco and animal-friendly lifestyle? Enter PlantX.

OK, I’m going plant-based. Now what?

So, you’ve chosen to live a plant-based lifestyle for the animals, for the environment, and also for your health. Now, imagine the frustration of having to scrutinize every single ingredient on every package of every product that you buy, constantly worrying that you’ll find some animal-based ingredient tucked away in the fine print. It’s a concern for every single person living a plant-based and vegan lifestyle, and though it has spawned countless memes that circulate in the vegan and plant-based community, it’s a pain point nonetheless.
