Today is World Vegan Day. Every year on 1st November people around the world celebrate and champion veganism. Some people may go vegan for the day to celebrate, but others make life choices every day of their lives in honour of veganism.
More and more people are changing their lifestyle and purchasing decisions to reflect a vegan lifestyle. We have seen a huge surge in people becoming vegan’s as it is credited to a healthier lifestyle, as well as protecting the planets animals as well as loads of environmental benefits.
A vegan is someone who does not eat or use anything that has originated in any way from an animal. As well as not eating meat or fish, vegan’s also avoid all animal products like eggs, milk, wool and silk along with much more such as honey.
So why are more and more people making the decision to go vegan? The rise in figures is closely linked to the surge in focus that the environment has got in recent times thanks to shows such as Blue Planet. The production of meat and other animal products places a heavy burden on the environment, therefore making the switch to veganism is one of the easiest and most effective ways to reduce our impact on the environment.
A vegan diet can also be one of the healthiest ways to live for your own health, a healthy vegan diet is abundant with healthy goodness, vitamins and reduced saturated fats thanks to the heavy focus on plant-based products. Finally, and possibly the biggest motivation for vegans, is protecting the animals on our planet. Most vegans feel that changing to a vegan lifestyle takes a stand against animal cruelty and exploitation.
To celebrate and support this amazing lifestyle choice made by many people around the world, and to honour World Vegan Day 2019, we have bought together all of our favourite vegan leather changing bags. Changing bags are the ultimate parenting essential to help make parenting on the move that little bit easier.
