Come November 1, humanity will celebrate not only All Saints Day to honor the good human souls that gave more than they took, millions of people around the world will also observe World Vegan Day, in honor of a way of life that extends compassion beyond the human species and embraces all of sentient life.
The World Vegan Day began in 1994 when Louise Wallis, then Chair of The Vegan Society in the United Kingdom, commemorated the 50th anniversary of the founding of the organization and the coining of the terms “vegan” and “veganism”. In 2011, Wallis said: “We knew the Society had been founded in November 1944, but didn’t know the exact date, so I decided to go for November 1, partly because I liked the idea of this date coinciding with Samhain/Halloween and the Day of the Dead—traditional times for feasting and celebration, both apt and auspicious.”
TessDrive celebrates World Vegan Day in this special presentation of SustainabiliTalks with vegan and futurist Shiela R. Castillo. Here, she discusses the many ways in which veganism can benefit not only our personal health, but also bring back ecological balance to the Earth. Castillo also distinguishes between the terms “vegetarianism” and “veganism”, and explains how starting such an empowering vegan lifestyle can be best achieved by committing to a 100% plant-based diet.
