April 1 to Be First Vegan T-shirt Day in the Virgin Islands

To raise awareness about veganism, the Vegan Society is asking all vegans to wear any vegan/animal rights message T-shirt (button, sticker, necklace, etc.) to raise awareness for the rights of animals.

After you wearing such an item on Saturday, April 1, please e-mail a picture of yourself in the message shirt (or button, sticker, etc.) to veganpeacevi@gmail.com. Saturday, April 1, is the first Vegan T-shirt Day in the Virgin Islands.

If you like this idea and want to raise awareness to help the animals, please share it (and wear it!).

What is a Vegan?

A vegan is a type of diet that excludes beef, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients.  While vegans follow an animal-free diet, they also do not wear animals or use them for entertainment or any other purpose.

Why Vegan?

A vegan diet offers an incredibly effective way to protect animals, the environment and a person’s health.
