CELEBRATING VEGAN DAY?
Here are some facts that will
help you decide
your way to veganism.
Most people still convict veganism as vegetarianism. While vegetarianism is the practice of not consuming any meat and avoiding eating any leftovers from animal slaughter, veganism, on the other hand, is the rigorous form of vegetarianism. Vegans share a plant-based diet in which they abstain from all animal products, including all meat, dairy, eggs, honey, cheese, etc. They also avoid materials derived from animals like leather, goods that have been tested on animals, and establishments that use animals for entertainment.
Have you ever wondered how the concept of veganism started and where it come from?
Although the phrase “flesh-avoidance” was primarily used in 1944 by the Vegan society, the idea dates back to ancient Indian and eastern mediterranean communities. World Vegan Day was established on November 1, 1994, by Louise Wallis, an animal rights activist and the then President of the Vegan Society, to mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Vegan Society and the term “vegan”. The main objective of marking the occasion was to create awareness about the benefits of a vegan diet and to promote animal sentiments in the world.
