World Vegetarian Day This Wednesday

October 1 marks the annual celebration of a meat-free lifestyle.


This Wednesday marks the annual World Vegetarian Day, when organizations and meat-free eaters around the world celebrate a plant-based diet with lectures, parties, potlucks, and festivals. 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 the veg lifestyle.
