Take the Devon
Vegan Pledge 2013!
The Vegan Pledge
is back! After a successful launch last year, Exeter Friends For Animals is
running its popular scheme again this spring. The aim is to provide free help
and guidance to anyone thinking of trying an animal-free diet, for whatever
reason: whether to reduce animal suffering, improve their health or reduce
their carbon footprint - or indeed all three.
undertake to follow a vegan diet for one month, and attend a workshop at the
beginning and end of the month consisting of cookery demonstrations, talks,
discussions and nutritional advice from a registered dietician culminating in a
delicious "I Can't Believe It's Vegan!" lunch. They are also assigned
a vegan "buddy" who they can contact with any queries or problems,
and a programme of social events during the month offers a chance to get
together with fellow pledgers.
Over half of
last year's pledgers decided to remain vegan, and a large proportion said they
would eat more vegan food in future. Among the former was Honiton Green Party
councillor Sharon Pavey, who praised the initiative:
"I'm so happy being vegan now, over 9
months on. It was the right decision and I'm really pleased with it all and
thank you to EFFA for organising the Go Vegan month".
