A modern tradition: World Vegan Month is here!
One of our favorite modern traditions is the celebration of World Vegan Month during November. Activists and organizations use it to spread information about plant-based diets, the consequences of consuming animal lives, the cruelty they face every day, and the impact that industrial production has on the planet. It is a month to reflect on our habits and what is behind them, and what we can do to contribute to our own health and our planet.
When did World Vegan Month start?
The history of World Vegan Month dates back to 1944 with the creation of The Vegan Society movement. In 1994, commemorating their 50th anniversary, they celebrated the first World Vegan Day on November 1st, soon it was extended to a week becoming World Vegan Week, to finally settle for the whole month due to the good response.
How can I commemorate it?

New supermarket adventures!
