Lockdowns and quarantine, self-isolation, and the uncertainty of the past few months have taken its toll. With World Vegan Day, 2020, coming up, this is a good opportunity to find eco retreats and to put some time aside for your physical and mental health. Recuperate with some healthy meals in a quiet part of the world in a relaxing environment for a few days to mark World Vegan Day.
What is World Vegan Day?
An annual event first held in 1994 on November 1st, World Vegan Day is celebrated by vegans around the world. Various activities are planned each year, such as a variety of stalls, hosting potluck dinners, and planting memorial trees, but because of social distancing regulations in 2020, many events may not go ahead. Since these events might not take place, there are other ways to mark the day and to celebrate the benefits of veganism for both humans, and the good it does for the environment with a wellness retreat in some eco-friendly rentals. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite glamping retreats for an eco-friendly vacation, so keep reading, and find the perfect spot to celebrate World Vegan Day.
