NYC Students Launch Veg Month

New York City area students announce February as “Veguary” in order to promote veganism.

A group of high school students from New York City are asking people around the country to pledge to reduce or eliminate their meat intake for the month of February. Veguary, or “Vegetarian February,” began in 2010 when three classmates realized that eliminating meat consumption is an effective way to give individuals the power to “confront several prevalent problems in our world” such as obesity, global warming, and inhumane treatment of animals. Veguary’s website offers tips, recipes, and an “Ask a Veg” column for those who sign the Veguary pledge. People from more than 30 states have signed up to participate in Veguary 2011; the organizers are hoping to reach all 50 by the time Veguary begins on February 1.
