Why Moby is all about veganism and the animals

In 2016 Moby opened up the fully vegan restaurant ‘Little Pines’ in Los Angeles and said that 100% of profits will be going towards helping animals. Last year he also set up the world’s first and only vegan festival ‘Circle V’ which returned by popular demand this November.

Moby told Rolling Stone Magazine: “I don’t want to be involved in anything that leads to or contributes to their {animals} suffering. At first this led me to give up beef and chicken. Then fish (if you’ve ever spent time with fish you realize pretty quickly that they feel pain and are much happier not being hooked or speared or netted).”

“Then I thought, “I don’t want to contribute to animal suffering. But the cows and chickens in commercial dairy and egg farms are pretty miserable, so why am I still eating milk and eggs?” So in 1987 I gave up all animal products and became a vegan.” He continued.
