... IS NOT JUST A FOOD TREND!
There can be different reasons why choosing a vegan life.
Here we think is a perfect definition from "The Vegan Society":
"Veganism is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude - as far as is possible and practicable - all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals."
So be a part of our journey to a more compassionate and cruelty free live.
LET'S GO VEGAN FOR THE ANIMALS, OUR PLANET AND OUR HEALTH!
We've always loved the Ocean and being in the water. For us scuba diving was the stepping stone to new adventures.
When we came in contact with the beautiful underwater world, it was also the starting point for "discovering" more sustainable topics like veganism, low-waste, conservation in general, and especially the protection of marine life.
We already volunteered and worked with Sea Shepherd back in Austria, and together with the NGO Innoceana, we made a documentary about a whale rescue that took place here in the South Pacific of Costa Rica.

Living in the Southern Pacific side of Costa Rica means living between the Ocean and the mountains.
Did you know that Costa Rica contains almost 6% of the world's biodiversity? Not bad for a country smaller than Austria!
It is home to more than 900 different bird species and more than 500 species of mammals. 25% of the country is protected territory like national parks, marine parks, Nature Reserves and Wildlife Refuges.
One sanctuary that is close to us is the Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary who takes care of injured animals like monkeys, sloths, wild cats, birds, parrots, anteaters and many more species. The goal is - as far as possible - to rehabilitate and rewild all the rescued animals.
Together with them we had the chance to rewild a female anteater who is now roaming our land. Watch the video and read about it here.
We hope that we can help more animals in the future!
