about why he is choosing meat-free foods for one week.
“Participating in VegWeek has been a really eye-opening experience. It was so easy to find vegetarian options for meals and I haven’t missed meat at all. Thank you for raising my awareness and giving me the opportunity to do my part for the planet!”
“I felt much better eating vegan this week. NO HEARTBURN! It was fun trying new foods that I may not have ever tried before. I will definitely be going vegan during the weekdays. I have already made the switch to almond and soy milk in my coffee.”
“Doing the 7-Day VegPledge showed me that it’s not hard at all to go vegan. Thank you so much for educating people about the wonderful lives everyone can live while helping animals and standing up for their rights.”
