"Vegetarian – We believe that the single most important thing an individual can do for their health, for the environment, and for the sake of the innocent animals, is to adopt a vegetarian diet. We do not sell meat, fish, poultry, eggs, or their by-products."
All the products sold in Down to Earth stores are 100% vegetarian. Our products contain no ingredients from slaughtered animals or that are tested on animals. Down to Earth sells no meat, poultry, fish, eggs, or their by-products such as animal rennet contained in cheese, dietary supplements in gelatin capsules, etc.
We sell certain animal products such as milk, cheese and honey, which can be obtained without harming animals. And we sell a wide variety of vegan foods.

The simplest, easiest thing we can do to increase the health and sustainability of our planet and of all its inhabitants, is to adopt a vegetarian diet. If everyone did it, this is the one thing that could help reduce climate change due to a reduction global-warming methane and carbon dioxide gases that comes from the livestock industry—mostly manure. The practices of the meat industry create topsoil loss, deforestation, water pollution from barnyard runoff, and they cause billions of innocent animals to suffer as we raise them for food.
In contrast, vegetarian food requires significantly less cost, resources, and energy to produce than animal-based foods--which would make it possible to feed more people and free resources for other needs.
For all these reasons, a vegetarian diet could help increase the long-term sustainability of our planet. And, most importantly, a vegetarian diet is healthier.
Vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes and dairy products provide all nutrition we need for good health. Scientific studies support the health benefits of a vegetarian diet.
