World Vegan Day

World Vegan Day

Are you looking for ways to simultaneously take care of the earth and your body as well as helpless animals? Look no further than World Vegan Day.

World Vegan Day was established on November 1, 1994 to commemorate the 50th anniversary the UK Vegan Society, and the origin of the term “Vegan”. Although the exact date of establishment of Vegan Society was not known, it was founded in November 1944. Although the Vegan Society and the term “vegan”, were created at this time, the idea of eating foods free from animal products has been around for a long time.

Veganism is believed to have been around since at least 2000 years ago. Vegetarianism (the abstinence from eating meat) may have existed for as long as 500 years before that. This was the time that Pythagoras of Samos (a Greek philosopher and mathematician) made it a part of his life’s work in order to encourage benevolence, care, and compassion for all animals. Many Buddhist followers are also advocates of vegetarianism, and do not believe that animals should be hurt.

However, veganism was not a lifestyle until 1806, when it really began to take shape. Percy Bysshe Shelley and Dr. William Lambe first made the case to Europeans against eating eggs and dairy for ethical reasons.

It took over 100 years before the Vegans united and formed the UK Vegan Society. Donald Watson coined the term “vegan” in that year. It is evident that it was derived from Vegetarian. The distinction was made at that time that Vegans didn’t consume dairy products.

Later, this was extended to eggs. By 1951, veganism was a movement that prohibits the exploiting of animals of any kind. This meant wearing furs, leather and other animal products. Just a few years later in 1960, the American Vegan Society was also formed.

In 1994, the President, UK Vegan Society, decided to designate the 1st November as World Vegan Day. This date is now recognised as the day on which Vegan Society was established and Vegan Day will be observed. It’s also a great day to kick off World Vegan Month, which is November.

World Vegan Day is about being kind to animals. A smaller number of animal products means less greenhouse gases, which is good for the earth and everyone. It’s also healthier for the human body. It’s a win/win situation!

Start the month of November off with World Vegan Day. Those who really enjoy it might find they want to celebrate the whole month! These are some ideas to honor this day:

Vegan Day celebrates the founding of the Vegan Society. It also offers an opportunity to spread the word about the many benefits of veganism and a vegan diet. This may sound complex, but it doesn’t have be. It’s easy to get started by having a green vegetable salad for lunch, instead of a burger. Coconut oil can be used instead of butter and you can substitute almond, soy, or oat milk for dairy milk. It is easier than you think!
