Happy World Vegan Day, everyone! This year, hundreds of people curious about a more compassionate diet have signed our World Vegan Month Pledge and are about to embark on their first 30 days of plant-based eating. It’s an exciting moment because with every single meat-free meal – every single mouthful, even – they’ll be helping animals.

It’s not too late to join them – take the pledge here. Then, whether you’re a veteran vegan or an eager newbie, check out some ways to celebrate today:

  1. Join the World Vegan Month event on Facebook to connect with other vegan pledgers and swap tips.Facebook
  2. Snack on a scrumptious vegan sandwich. Here are some ideas.

  3. Educate yourself about the cruelty inflicted on animals in the food industry. From rape racks to macerated day-old chicks, the truth isn’t pretty – but it’s definitely a good motivator.

  4. Feel good about the fact that you’re not eating arsenic, pink slime or any of these other stomach-turning ingredients found in meat.
