Month of October Celebrates Vegetarian Lifestyle

Today is World Vegetarian Day and the kick-off of Vegetarian Awareness Month, a campaign aimed at showcasing the benefits of a plant-based diet.

Today, October 1, marks World Vegetarian Day and the launch of Vegetarian Awareness Month. The annual event, which was founded by the North American Vegetarian Society, aims to draw awareness to the health, animal-saving, and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet. Vegan and vegetarian lifestyles have garnered much attention in recent years, with an increasing number of recognizable names adopting the diet, including celebrities such as Ben Stiller, Rosie O’Donnell, and Dax Shepard, and athletes such as Texans running back Arian Foster and tennis champion Venus Williams. Additionally, many leading scientists have recommended the diet for its climate-saving properties, with the Stockholm International Water Institute recently revealing the world’s population may need to switch almost exclusively to a vegetarian diet by 2050 to avoid massive food shortages.
