Veggie Pledge Plus

Who's making it happen


Veggie pledge is an ever popular competition by which members of colleges pledge to go vegetation or vegan in the month of November. Last year veggie pledge saw 1,500 students participate, saves thousands of animal lives and 50 tones of carbon. This year we are expanding veggie pledge to acknowledge that there may be better ways for some people to reduce their carbon foot print. Included in this year pledge season are opportunities to commit to stop flying (the number one biggest personal emission) and to go plastic or coffee cup free. This decision also creates a more inclusive competition for those with climate or food anxiety among any other dietary restrictions. This year veggie pledge will start the 25th of October. Stay tuned and check on the Facebook group to get updates and recipes!
