Thousands Joining Celebrities by Pledging to Eat Green for Vegweek

April 3, 2018 — With inspiration from the stars, thousands of people are joining Compassion Over Killing’s VegWeek 2018 campaign, by pledging to eat plant-based from April 16-22.

VegWeek is celebrated annually in April, to coincide with Earth Day (April 22) and it aims to inspires pre-vegans to take the VegPledge as a fun and collective way to explore the many flavors and benefits of choosing plant-based foods, for our planet, animals, and our health.

VegWeek 2018 celebrity Endorsers include:

  • Alicia Silverstone, actress & author
  • Grey, vegan rapper
  • Mya, recording artist
  • Alexandra Paul, actor
  • Tia Blanco, surfer
  • Torre Washington, bodybuilder
  • Belinda Carlisle, recording artist
  • Lauren Toyota, founder, Hot for Food
  • and other stars

The power of protecting our planet through plant-based eating is clear: raising animals for food  is a leading cause of environmental degradation, and we can all fight climate change with our forks. Oxford University researchers found that a global shift to vegan eating could slash food-related emissions by 70%.

Leading up to and throughout VegWeek, pledgers receive loads of discounts on vegan food, tons of free recipes, and more for a deliciously successful week. Our Gold Sponsors A Well-Fed World, Follow Your Heart, The Jackfruit Company, Lady Freethinker, Miyoko’s Kitchen, Treeline Treenut Cheese, Veestro, and Vegan Essentials are offering special deals.

“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 & Lifestyle Coach.
