“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
You may or may not be aware that this week beginning the 18th May 2015 is National Vegetarian Week.
I know, I know… It’s now Wednesday and I’m a little bit behind, but better late than never eh!?
So what is National Vegetarian week all about?
In my eyes it’s all about raising awareness and spreading the message of vegetarian living.
It’s about gently showing those who are receptive that we could probably all benefit a little by including more plants in our lives. Whether we’re coming from a health perspective, an environmental outlook, or from an ethical point of view.
What National Vegetarian Week is not about is shaming people. It’s not about taking the high road or making people feel bad about their habits. That doesn’t really get us anywhere…
I know that many of you readers fall somewhere on the vegetarian spectrum, whether it’s fully vegan or just a little plant curious.
You may be wondering how you can get involved with National Vegetarian Week, so you can do your bit for the movement, however big or small.
With that in mind, I thought I would collect together a few ideas that you could run with. Everyone has different personalities and different talents, so take what resonates with you, and go for it.
Let me know in the comments section below what you’ll be doing this week, or hit me up on Twitter.
