Hug A Vegetarian Day is celebrated annually on September 23rd. It turns out there are a huge number of people in the world who adhere to vegetarianism. This theory has not been scientifically confirmed, but there is strong evidence in favor of vegetarianism.
Hug A Vegetarian Day introduces the vegetarian lifestyle. This is a whole philosophy, which involves not only the rejection of meat, but also any animal food, natural fur and leather. The holiday was founded by the organization “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals”. The founder of the organization, Ingrid Newkirk, was unhappy with the conditions in which animals were kept in shelters, and she sincerely wanted to help. Today, PETA is a symbol of the fight against animal abuse.
