The Vegetarian Society is one of the oldest vegetarian societies in the world. It is based in Manchester in England and was formed in 1847.
The Vegetarian Society is an educational charity working to support, represent and increase the number of vegetarians in the UK. It’s a great organisation which I am proud to be a member of.
Why join the Vegetarian Society?
I joined the Vegetarian Society because I am passionate about vegetarianism. I want to support an organisation that helps people become vegetarian and support the lives of vegetarians in the UK and is an advocate for vegetarian issues.
