Inaugurated in 1977 by the North American Vegetarian Society October 1st is International Vegetarian Day and kicks off a month long celebration around the world. Governments, organizations and individuals are encouraged to observe the occasion through education, conferencing, festivals, social events or simply by coming together as friends and family to enjoy a vegetarian experience.
This year, our first observance since we began publishing in 2003, The Green Cutting Board has designed a poster and several new recipes to mark the occasion. Please feel free to download our Vegetarian Day Web Poster for your own event and try the recipes, we think you'll be pleased.
