The World Vegan Month was first created in 1994 by Louise Wallis, the then President of The Vegan Society. She was looking for a way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Vegan Society. She knew the society was founded sometime in November 1944, but not the exact date. So, she decided for November 1st.

Since then, World Vegan Day initiates a month celebrating plant-based diets and the vegan movement across the globe. World Vegan Month was initiated to spread the vegan message of avoiding all animal products and living a cruelty-free lifestyle.

World Vegan Month follows October’s Vegetarian Awareness Month or World Vegetarian Month, and both movements share practically the same messages. Nowadays every year there are numerous events the world over, promoting plant-based diets and vegan lifestyle.

Water is Life!

Fresh water is necessary for the survival of all living organisms on Earth. Our bodies are made up of about 60% water and we cannot survive more than a few days without it.

On average, a vegan, a person who doesn't eat meat or dairy, indirectly consumes nearly 600 gallons of water per day less than a person who eats the average American diet.
