How cool would it be to have a pro-vegetarian postage stamp in India, which, by the way, is considered to be the birthplace of vegetarianism? PETA India has sent an application to the philately division of the Department of Posts urging the agency to issue a national stamp honouring the country’s strong vegetarian heritage just in time for World Vegetarian Day (Oct 1), Gandhi Jayanti and Vegetarian Awareness Month (October).
India has the highest population of vegetarians of any country in the world. In a letter accompanying the application for the proposed postage stamp, we have reminded the government that adopting a vegetarian diet is the best way to protect one’s health, animals and the environment.
The lady behind our vegan campaigns, Bhuvaneshwari Gupta, who also happens be a nutritionist, says, “This stamp would remind people every day that they can help stop animal abuse, slow the production of gases that cause climate change and keep themselves fit and trim by simply going vegetarian”.
