#VeggieChallenge: the challenge to be vegetarian or vegan for 30 days that some Mexican influencers accepted to take care of the environment
Actress Marianna Burelli and nutritionist Cristina Velasco are talents who joined the Fundación Vegetarianos Hoy digital challenge, which aims to guide people to transition to a diet without animal products for a month and thus counteract the effects of climate change.
In the framework of World Environment Day, it is increasingly necessary to find ways to reduce global warming, which has wreaked havoc around the world. At the same time, more and more people are aware that a change in diet is the greatest contribution that we can make individually to take care of the planet. So if you've been wondering if an animal-free diet is for you for a while, #VeggieChallenge may be the answer. The totally free challenge of Fundación Vegetarianos Hoy invites you to switch to a vegetarian or vegan diet for 30 days, with the possibility of starting on the date you prefer.
Taking advantage of the culinary possibilities during the quarantine period, the actress Marianna Brunelli, the nutritionist Cristina Velasco and the actress Maria Gallenos, have already joined the challenge and will be doing it during the month of June.
How does it work? Very easy, you just have to register through the website www.VeggieChallenge.org, and every day you will receive new recipes, information and useful tips for the transition to a healthier and more sustainable diet. Each person who joins the challenge saves 100,000 liters of water every month –the equivalent of 1,000 showers- and 420 Kgs of CO2, the same as an average car emits walking 3,000 kilometers, the distance between the states of Baja California and Chiapas.
“This is the perfect time to change our eating habits. Because being at home we can be more aware of what we eat, and because we cannot forget that we are living this pandemic because of eating animals. Reports from various international organizations indicate that if we continue to raise animals on a large scale, we are getting closer to the next pandemic. Today this change is not only about saving the world we live in, but also about protecting those we love the most ”, says Ignacia Uribe, CEO and founder of Vegetarianos Hoy.
In addition to receiving information daily, #VeggieChallenge invites you to share your experience with friends through social networks, uploading photos of your food to Instagram with the campaign's hashtag and tagging @Vegetarianos_hoy.
