“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being.”
– Mahatma Gandhi

Today is World Vegetarian Day, the annual kick-off of Vegetarian Awareness Month.

QNET is a company built on compassion and a mission to bring change in the world. In line with this, we strongly uphold vegetarian principles and encourage others to adopt the same lifestyle. Why? Because being a vegetarian is great! Not only for the people who are, but for the rest of the world as well.

Being vegetarian is a wise choice for us, individually, because it helps prevent diseases and promote longer lives. And because a vegetarian lifestyle helps you stay healthy, it helps you stay away from the hospital and having to take medication which could cost you a lot of money.

But an even more awesome thing about vegetarianism is how it follows the principle of RYTHM as well. Because when you live a vegetarian lifestyle, you also help reduce global warming (livestock has been reported to generate more greenhouse gases than all the cars and trucks in the world combined), promote animal rights and respect for the environment, and even aid in alleviating world hunger! How? Watch this video.

Our Founders, Dato’ Sri Vijay Eswaran and Mr Joseph T Bismark are proud vegetarians, and we follow their example by serving strictly vegetarian meals during our corporate functions. They have our deep admiration for being staunch advocates of respect for life.
