Vegan Party Positively Impacts Thousands of Lives
"I've been vegan for 8 years and started my journey for ethical reasons. Animals hold a near and dear place in my life. After such a long time being plant-based, I realized we are perfectly able to thrive on plants." Ariel Levin, the founder of Vegan Block Party, shared with us.
A vegan diet isn't just a trendy diet; it's a revolutionary lifestyle that can positively impact our health, the environment, and underprivileged communities.
Our investigations discovered that after just one day of avoiding animal foods, one can save; 1 animal's life, 1,100 gallons of water, 40 lbs of grain, 30 sq ft of deforested land, and 20 lbs of CO2. These findings reveal to us that no wonder there is a growing movement advocating for a better future for the planet. And thanks to Levin, she is paving the way toward bringing more awareness through her annual Festival, Vegan Block Party.
We asked Levin why she decided to take on such a big undertaking and plan a vast festival; she shares, "I felt the vegan community lacked in vegan events after attending Eat Drink Vegan in LA. That ultimately inspired me to plan an event in Miami our community would love and appreciate."
Over the years, Levin has done a phenomenal job creating a welcoming atmosphere for vegans and non-vegans alike. She aspires to bring together people from all walks of life to experience delicious vegan food, cruelty-free products, phenomenal music, wellness workshops, and learn about the various benefits of adopting a vegan lifestyle.
Vegan Block Party revolves around bringing together vegan businesses to showcase the wide variety of products that can easily substitute animal products and byproducts.
Non-vegans can benefit from attending this Festival by expanding their minds and opening up to all vegan businesses in our community. Levin expressed, "people think vegans just eat lettuce and carrot sticks, but most people don't know we have vegan burgers, pizzas, and donuts. Even though they are not healthy, there is comfort in knowing that it exists. Everything that exists in the non-vegan world also exists in the vegan world."
For Levin, the primary benefit she sees in going vegan is having a huge weight lifted off one's shoulders for not partaking in unnecessary cruelty in innocent beings. Going vegan can also tremendously benefiting one's health. Not to say you can't be an unhealthy vegan, but when you choose plant-based foods, you will feel so much better than eating processed meat and cheese.
