World Vegan Day

November 1 is World Vegan Day, an opportunity to reflect on and share the many benefits of a cruelty-free lifestyle.

Now in its 17th year, World Vegan Day returns today, commemorating the 67th anniversary of the term “vegan.” The word was coined by The Vegan Society in 1944, the year that the organization was founded. On this celebratory day and throughout the month of November, vegan organizations worldwide will offer festivals, fairs, and other events to raise awareness of the ethical and personal benefits of a plant-based diet and lifestyle. This year’s celebrations are taking place around the world, from the US to Switzerland to Brazil. The Vegan Society also offers tips for outreach on its website, including free posters, leaflets, and booklets to distribute in your community.
