Vegan Month marks the formation of the Vegan Society in November 1944.

The special day commemorates the anniversary of the founding of The Vegan Society in 1944 by Donald Watson and friends, who defined the word 'vegan' and started modern veganism.

Watson said shortly before he died at the ripe age of 95 in 2005: "It is not every day a movement is born which in its general application could revolutionise mankind."
