World Vegan Month is celebrated around the world, highlighting the easily accessible and beneficial lifestyle, and courage those curious, to get involved. The image of veganism is undergoing a radical change in history with its close association with health, fitness and wellbeing, as well as it ethical impact on animals and the environment. Veganism has expanded massively in the UK, with more people choosing to enjoy a plant-based diet. In the UK, 3.5 million people now identify as vegan (7%).
LBU now has its own Vegan & Vegetarian Society, find more information here:Vegetarian & Vegan Society.
"We aim to bring people together who are vegetarians or vegans or people who are interested in the lifestyle to socialise together in a fun and relaxing atmosphere! :)
All are welcome. We also aim to spread awareness and educate students about the ethical and environmental effects that we create when we make our food choices. We provide a supportive environment where anyone can come and try new foods and meet like-minded people."
