I have to admit… I love social media!… I love how easy it is to spread the word to like-minded folks! I just got word from the people at Fix that we are currently entering into Vegetarian Awareness Month! So cool!
You know what else?… World Vegan Month starts in November!!… November 1st marks the day that Donald Watson, his wife, and four of his friends founded The Vegan Society back in 1944. You can read the first issue of their Vegan News HERE. While some people think that veganism is a direct rejection of current factory farming methods of animals, the vegan ideology was actually started long before the industrialization of animal agriculture. The slaughtering of animals has always been dirty, and messy, and brutal regardless of the type of farming methods (small farm vs. factory farm).
So, I just want to say that I went vegetarian almost 20 years ago (vegan 3 years)… and while I’m just learning about the importance of October and November.. I am so excited to be sharing with you that we are entering two months devoted to meat-free living! ♥
