World Vegan Day

Date When Celebrated : Always November 1

On World Vegan Day we celebrate  those who practice veganism. It is also a great opportunity to learn and appreciate the benefits of veganism for humans, non-human animals, and the environment.

 Veganism is the practice of consuming a plant based diet and not eating animals. For a true vegan this includes not eating fish, as well as milk, eggs and anything made with these products. Imagine all the foods that have milk or eggs in them! A significant number of people who are "Vegan", will not eat meat, but will consume milk or eggs. 

Today we celebrate the benefits of veganism to:

  • Humans - It's a healthier, plant based diet, and results in a healthier you. This diet is higher in fiber and lower in cholesterol. It helps to lower the risk of heart disease, lowers blood pressure and obesity risk.
  • Animals - Animals and animal rights groups will just love you. It means the lives of many animals will be spared.
  •  Environment - Plants are lower on the food chain and require much less resources to feed you than animal meats.

Vegan organizations celebrate this day, by raising awareness of veganism. They offer educational programs and workshops to the general public. They also sometimes hold a feast, loaded with plant based goodies. If you are new to the world of veganism, you can become a vegan, if only for a day.
