(NZ) World Vegetarian Day celebrates 30th anniversary (+photos)
- Today is World Vegetarian Day, a chance for vegetarians to celebrate
their lifestyle choice and raise awareness of the ethical,
environmental, health and humanitarian benefits of not eating meat.
But it's also an opportunity for those not familiar with vegetarianism
to learn about the movement and perhaps try some new recipes.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of World Vegetarian Day, which
was founded by the North American Vegetarian Society (NAVS) in 1977.
Celebrations in New Zealand were held over the weekend, with festivals
in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch drawing large crowds of
vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.
