Happy World Vegetarian Day

Hug a Tree with Me

Today, October 1, is World Vegetarian Day – a joyous day to consider the environmental and health benefits of vegetarianism. October 1st also marks the kickoff of Vegetarian Awareness Month, which ends on November 1st. It is common knowledge that the term vegetarianism means to follow a meat-free diet, most people recognize the extreme benefits of ditching meat but are simply intimidated by the prospect of eating outside of their norm.

There was a time when vegans were viewed as outliers – an extreme mutation of vegetarians gone too far. The term “vegetarian” has dominated internet searches since Google first started tracking such trends in 2004. In late 2011 that changed and there were as many searches for “vegan” as there were for “vegetarian.” While “vegetarian” has remained more or less constant since 2004, “vegan” has continued to grow consistently in number of searches.

My guess is that the proud photographer didn’t really put the picture there because it is his best wildlife shot ever (sorry, John…), but because he genuinely cares about those birds that are hatching in his garden.
