Go Vegan! Stall for World Vegan Day

World Vegan Day in Dublin!

World Vegan Day is an international vegan holiday, celebrated since 1994 on the 1st of November.

Becoming vegan is the most important step a person can take to make this world a better place. And it’s something that everyone can do. It’s good for the humans and nonhumans, good for our health, and good for the environment.

According to a report published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the livestock sector generates more greenhouse gas emissions as measured in CO2 equivalent – 18 percent – than transport.

In Dublin we decided to celebrate this day by handing out free

vegan cakes. This is always a good way to get peoples attention and also inform them about the fact that you don’t need any eggs to make a wonderful muffin.

We had a table full of information for curious people who passed by and stopped to sign our petitions or get a leaflet with some nice vegan recipes. Because it was World Vegan Day most leaflets at the table were about veganism:
How the meat, egg and milk industries waste our world’s recourses.
How animals in these industries are being bred and kept under horrible conditions.
How healthy it is living on a vegan diet.
But we also had our information on vivisection and fur out for people to take home with them.
We handed out close to 50 Cupcakes, or Fairy Cakes if you like, and there were three different flavors: chocolate with
a bit of orange, golden vanilla, and peanut butter. The recipes for these were taken from the brilliant book “Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World”.

Some people that stopped had never heard about veganism before and it felt great to share the information with them and answer their questions.

But there were also vegans stopping by that couldn’t believe their luck, being able to, for once, get free vegan cakes!

It was a positive day. Not even the weather failed us and the rain was absent all day. And needless to say, we were all quite stuffed when it was time to pack up…
