International Vegetarian Week begins

World Vegetarian Day raises awareness about the benefits of vegetarianism including health advantages, saving animals’ lives, and preserving the Earth. The day exists to increase the knowledge on the ethical, health and humanitarian implications of a vegetarian lifestyle. The North American Vegetarian Society created this day in 1997 “to promote the joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism”. World Vegetarian Day is celebrated globally by Vegetarians and Vegans across the planet.
