Each year on October 1st, we get to celebrate World Vegetarian Day! The North American Vegetarian Society created this day back in 1977, and we’ve been promoting the joy, compassion, and life-enhancing benefits of vegetarianism ever since. Vegetarianism has grown in popularity over the years, and for good reason. The health, environmental, and ethical benefits are proven.
Every second roughly 1,800 animals, both land and sea, lose their lives in order to feed people. That adds up to over 55 billion animals killed to support the U.S. food supply every year.
If you think going green simply means environmental responsibility, consider thinking outside the box. At Down to Earth, we strongly believe that the single most important thing an individual can do for their health and for the sake of the innocent animals—as well as the environment—is to adopt a vegetarian diet.
