Thanks to Vegans, Baby (a comprehensive online guide to vegan life in Las Vegas), Las Vegas is taking a huge step in the name of veganism this January. (You can join the movement too, wherever you are, by signing up here.)
Vegans, Baby said their initiative is “to make being vegan in Las Vegas more accessible — we’ve curated partnerships with some of our favorite restaurants in Las Vegas with vegan offerings to bring you dynamic, delicious and diverse dining options across the Valley for the entire month.“
A press release from Vegans, Baby stated “Acknowledging the exploding vegan dining scene in Las Vegas, Vegans, Baby, the guide to all things vegan in Las Vegas, is organizing a monthlong celebration of vegan dining and living in January 2018. In synergy with a worldwide campaign, January will be renamed “Veganuary” for this valley-wide event incorporating many notable restaurants.”
If going vegan to save lives, improve health and fight climate change isn’t enough motivation to take the leap – all participating companies have agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds from every dish ordered as part of Vegans, Baby’s scheme with Veganuary in Las Vegas towards the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The Veganuary organization will also benefit from the meals purchased, which funds their continued efforts to promote veganism around the world (both of which are life-saving efforts).
This ultimate celebration of vegan dining, aimed at non-vegans and veg-curious will last the whole month of January, with the intention of raising awareness about plant-based eating and encouraging participants to make permanent changes to a vegan lifestyle, after the 31-day challenge ends.
“[W]e want to showcase Las Vegas’ movement towards the upper echelons in the vegan dining scene in the US, as well as show other restaurants in town there is a demand for vegan dishes — and a big one.” – Vegans, Baby.
“Restaurants across the valley will offer two or more special vegan items to their menus to appeal to both practicing vegans and those curious about including more plant-based food in their lives. Confirmed participants include Go Vegan, Panacea, The Pasta Shop Ristorante and Art Gallery, Violette’s Vegan Organic Cafe & Juice Bar, HUMMUS Bowls & Wraps, Hussong’s Cantina, and Pancho’s Kitchen, with more to be announced. The full list can be found at vegansbaby.com.“.
Considering the American Diabetes Association has recently endorsed the vegan diet, there is potential for an influx of many more to hop on board the vegan movement.
