If you have been searching for the opportunity to give the vegan diet a try, but have lacked the incentive to dive in, here is your chance! On March 20th, you can join the thousands across the world pledging to go vegan for a day. One day does not seem like much, but only 3 vegan meals can do tremendous good for the earth and the animals. Each day, a person who eats a vegan diet saves 1,100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 square feet of forested land, 20 pounds of CO2 equivalent, and one animal’s life!
The benefits of going vegan are not only amazing for the animals and environment, but also extend to your health. Choosing to eat vegan is an effortless way to go cholesterol free, cut down on fat, and eat more nutritious fruits and vegetables. But of course, there are plenty of indulgent vegan treats too, so you won’t be missing out on anything!
So whether you decide to go vegan all at once, or begin easing your way into the lifestyle a bit at a time, this is your chance to test out the waters. What are you waiting for? Pledge to go vegan on March 20th here!
Once you have pledged, check out PETA’s awesome vegan starter kit for all of the tips and tricks you will need to make your first day vegan a breeze.
