Thousands of compassionate and eco-conscious people are pledging to eat only plant-based foods for the week of April 16-22, joining a growing list of celebrities who have made the promise to go vegetarian for VegWeek 2018.

Celebrated every year in April, and tying in with Earth Day on April 22nd, VegWeek is a fun way to educate the public about the benefits of a plant-based diet.

Some of this year’s celebrity endorsers include actress and author Alicia Silverstone, recording artists Mya and Belinda Carlisle, body builder Torre Washington and surfer Tia Blanco, along with many more high profile animal lovers.

“When you go veg, you not only help animals and the planet, but you are aligning your diet with your values of kindness and non-violence. Please try eating animal-free by taking the 7-Day VegPledge,” says actress, activist and health coach Alexandra Paul.

Launched by animal rights group Compassion Over Killing (COK) in 2009, the initiative has grown in popularity every year, encouraging people to “make kinder, greener, and healthier food choices.”

Every person who takes the VegPledge will have access to discounts on delicious vegan food and free recipes and be in with a chance to win some awesome prizes.

“VegWeek is a fun way to show how delicious and accessible plant-based eating can be! From the moment you take the VegPledge, we’re here for you to ensure your week is a sweet and savory success,” said Jessica Carter, Compassion Over Killing’s vegan food and lifestyle coach.

Whether it’s for the health of ourselves, our planet or our fellow beings, LFT in supporting this amazing initiative. We are proud to be Gold Sponsors of VegWeek and encourage everybody to take the VegPledge this month and fight climate change with every meal you eat.
