Veg for Animals Every year in the U.S., billions of farm animals suffer and die under factory conditions considered so cruel they have been banned in other countries.
Veg for Earth According to a report published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, raising animals for meat generates more greenhouse gas emissions than all cars, trucks, planes, and other forms of transportation combined.

Veg Friendly Restaurants
Mad Mex offers vegan options upon request including their delicious Angry Hippy burrito which features grilled portobello, spicy spinach, pico de gallo and black beans. Be sure to request Daiya cheese when ordering. Vegan Daiya cheese & sour cream available upon request. We recommend ordering one of the vegetarian items and requesting vegan cheese and sour cream instead of attempting to veganize their non-vegetarian items.
