If you're looking to learn more about animal rights or the vegan lifestyle, there are excellent resources available online. Here are a few of my favorite sites.
VEGAN STARTER KIT
This comprehensive site includes a lot of background information and philosophical arguments against any uses of animals. Some of it is opinionated, but thought-provoking nevertheless.
The Green PLate
Once you've decided to try the vegan lifestyle, this site has your back! It explores all aspects in a fun and interactive way, and is a great resource for food options.
Free from harm
If there was a vegan equivalent of Huffington Post, this would be it. In addition to excellent educational materials, it is frequently updated with current news items and issues of the day.
