VEGGIE & VEGAN
Every March, Animal Aid concentrates on its annual promotion of vegetarianism, known as Veggie Month.
The reason we push the ‘go veggie’ message so passionately is because it really is the quickest, easiest and most immediate way that an individual can demonstrate opposition to animal suffering. The idea is simple: stop eating animals and you save their lives. And we are talking about millions and millions of lives. In the UK alone, around 1,000 million animals are slaughtered for food annually. That's 2.7 million a day, 112,500 an hour, 1,875 a minute, 31 per second.
