International Day of Vegan (01/11)

World Vegan Day is a holiday that appeared on November 1, 1994, when the Vegan Society celebrated its 50th anniversary.

The word vegan was formed by Donald Watson from the first three and last two letters of the English word "vegetarian" (Russian "vegetarian", "vegetarian"). The term began to be used by the Vegan Society founded by Watson on November 1, 1944 in London.

Veganism (veganism) is a lifestyle characterized, in particular, by strict vegetarianism. Vegans - adherents of veganism - eat and use only plant products, that is, completely excluding in their composition components of animal origin.
