History of World Vegan Month

The month starts with World Vegan Day on 1 November to celebrate the founding of the world’s first Vegan Society on that day in November 1944. The word ‘vegan’ was chosen founder by Donald Watson and his ‘non-dairy vegetarians’ to describe their diet.  Watson took the first and last two letters of ‘vegetarian’ to create this new word.

Here’s a first edition of The Vegan News from 1944
