The 1st of November marks National Vegan Day and the start of vegan month. Did you know that around 2.7% of the world’s population is currently vegan? This lifestyle is rapidly growing more and more popular by the day and Coinadrink Limited, the vending company, can offer vegan products in our snack vending machines and fresh food vending machines, as well as our Micro Market’s through Express Refreshments. Keep reading to find out more… The history of Veganism. Before we get into World Vegan Day, let’s check out the history… People first began avoiding animal products over 2000 years ago, almost as early as 500BCE. This was around the same time that Pythagoras promoted benevolence among species as well as a vegetarian diet. Similarly, Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) also spoke about the vegetarian diet with his supporters at this time. In November 1944, Donald Watson called a meeting with five other non-dairy vegetarians, to discuss these lifestyles. Even though many held similar views, these six creators were the first to actively create a new movement, despite opposition. The group’s new name was ‘vegan’, a word that encompassed the first three and last two letters of ‘vegetarian’. Although the vegan diet was defined in 1944, it was as late as 1949 before Leslie J Cross pointed out that society lacked a definition of veganism, which is why something was done about it! For the record, someone who considers themselves to be a vegan does not eat any food derived from animals and does not use other animal products. What is World Vegan Day? Marking the 1st of November, World Vegan Month is celebrated globally to recognise how much has been achieved, as a reflection on vegan successes and an opportunity to highlight how beneficial and accessible the vegan lifestyle is nowadays. This event can be celebrated in various ways, whether it be committing to a collective challenge or task, sharing vegan recipes or taking a pledge. This helps to promote and raise awareness about the importance of veganism, and you can get involved too. If the world was to go vegan, it is believed around 8 million human lives could be saved by 2050! It’s certainly food for thought. Vegan products available in our vending machines and Micro Market. Coinadrink offers a collection of vegan based products in our vending machines and Micro Markets through Express Refreshments. These range from snacks to fresh food to cold drinks. We are happy to tailor our refreshments to suit your requirements, so get in touch with us to find out more. Email Alistair@coinadrink.co.uk or alternatively, check out our website!
