SPA Canada will be present at the Montreal Climate March

Montreal, September 17th, 2019 - SPA Canada is pleased to be part of the 2019 Montreal International Climate Walk, which will take place on Friday, September 27th.

Adopting a vegan lifestyle has considerable impacts on our planet. Every day, a person with a vegan diet saves :
- 1, 100 gallons of water
- 45 lbs of grain
- 30 square feet of forest
- 20 lbs of CO2 
- 1 animal life

Each individual who adopt a vegan lifestyle eliminates the CO2 equivalent of what 4 cars produced per year.

"We are looking forward to the day when the consumption of animal products will be illegal," explains Dominique Routhier, Acting Director General and Animal Biologist at SPA Canada.

The climate crisis is a problem that spares no one, it is time to take action! This will be an opportunity for us to relaunch our twelve years old awareness campaign on the positive impacts of veganism on the environment and the importance of adopting this only viable option.

"Becoming a vegan is the action that has the greatest positive impact to help the planet, animals and ourselves!” She adds.

"Knowing that animal base and by-products food is the single most damaging cause of environmental destruction according to the UN, making changes to our way of life is more urgent than ever". Says Ms. Routhier. "Whether for ecological reasons, health or animal ethics, becoming vegan is no longer a choice but a necessity for everyone! " Adds Ms. Routhier.

Do not hesitate to come and see us during the event!
