World Veg Day

Time to celebrate veg pride! October 1 is World Vegetarian Day.

Today is World Vegetarian Day, so let your veg flag fly. Founded in 1977 by the North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS), World Veg Day kicks off Vegetarian Awareness Month, an educational campaign designed to spread the word about the ethical, environmental, and health benefits of a veg lifestyle. October 1 marks the beginning of a 30-day celebration, full of lectures, parties, potlucks, and festivals in North America and around the globe. Need some incentive to get involved? Anyone who has organized a fabulous event or outreach program can let NAVS know about it and win some amazing prizes.
