How many animals have you saved?

Post by miniboes » Thu Apr 20, 2017 4:45 am

There's a calculator on the vegan society's website that estimates how many animals you've saved by being vegan so far.

Having been vegan for about three years now, it estimates I've saved 110 animals, of which 2 pigs, 48 fish, 3 laying hens and 57 birds. Mine are probably highly skewed because I never ate fish or eggs and pretty much only liked pig meat.

I've been at least Vegetarian for 5 years. I went Vegan in the Spring of 2012 originally and stayed so for a year before receeding to Vegetarianism. I went Vegan for the second go around in mid-2014, so I've consistently been Vegan for about 2 3/4 years. In total that's three years and nine months Vegan, which equals (in NA)...


2 pigs, 41 fish, 5 laying hens, and 131 birds.

We were discussing this on the other thread (below). I'm not sure if you posted this after seeing the other thread, or maybe it's coincidence.

It's a coincidence; I skimmed over that thread.

Fun little calculator, but I wish it asked more about diet preferences before going vegan. That would make the results much more interesting.
