World Vegan Month has been an annual celebration running since 1994 as a time for recognising how far the vegan movement has come, and how accessible living plant-based and vegan can be. It's also the perfect time to encourage veg-curious to adopt or explore veganism further, whilst considering how beneficial this lifestyle can be to the environment, our communities, and the animals.
During World Vegan Month, people come together worldwide to share their top vegan tips, recipes and accomplishments, as well as raise awareness on the treatment of animals, environmental issues, and so on. There are so many reasons why one individual would choose to go vegan, and World Vegan Day is all about encouraging and inspiring others to take action, for both ourselves and future generations.
Although both vegan diets and vegetarian diets are considered “plant-based," there are subtle differences between the two. While veganism is completely devoid of any animal products, vegetarianism includes by products from animals, like dairy, eggs, and honey.
Contrary to popular belief, vegan and plant-based are two different things. A vegan omits animal products in all aspects of their lifestyle for ethical reasons. Whereas, a plant-based is more flexible - and you can modify it to your liking, as long as plants are at the forefront.
What we eat is the part of life that holds the most significant opportunity to make a difference in our journey towards a more sustainable future. Did you know that if the entire world went vegan by 2050, food-related greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced by 75%? Not only this, vegan diets help to protect marine wildlife, keep waterways cleaner, require less deforestation, and so much more. Discover more benefits, here.
