World Vegetarian Day

World Vegetarian Day is observed annually around the planet on October 1. This day was established in 1977 by the North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS) and was endorsed by the International Vegetarian Union in 1978. 


World Vegetarian Day initiates the month of October as Vegetarian Awareness Month, which ends with November 1, World Vegan Day, as the end of that month of celebration. 


The celebration of World Vegetarian Day and the entire Vegetarian Awareness Month is to bring awareness to the ethical, environmental, health, and humanitarian benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle. 


There are many proven health benefits and environmental benefits of vegetarian diets, some of those are: 


  • Reduce the risk of major killers such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer while cutting exposure to foodborne pathogens
  • Provide a viable answer to feeding the world’s hungry through more efficient use of grains and other crops
  • Save animals from suffering in factory-farm conditions and from the pain and terror of slaughter
  • Conserve vital but limited freshwater, fertile topsoil, and other precious resources
  • Preserve irreplaceable ecosystems such as rainforests and other wildlife habitats
  • Decrease greenhouse gases that are accelerating global warming
  • Mitigate the ever-expanding environmental pollution of animal agriculture


However, the utmost important reason that we’re sharing about this observance is to remind everyone to respect others’ diet habits and diet choices. 


People practice various diet preferences, some are due to religious or cultural beliefs, some are due to their health concerns, some are just based on their own likings. We must remember not to judge and comment on other’s diet habits because it is a very personal choice. 


If you’re a meat lover, do not try to persuade your vegan friends to taste your plate of juicy beef by telling them the benefits of consuming meat proteins. On the other hand, if you’re practicing vegetarianism, please do not guilt your friends by telling them they are causing animals to suffer. 


Let’s select a diet choice that is most suitable for yourself, eat moderately and happily!
