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".

The workshops

take place on Saturday 2 March and Saturday 13 April at the St

Sidwell's Centre, Sidwell Street,

Exeter. To take part, contact Kim on 07810

898440 or see our website www.effa-uk.org for more details. Now also on
