Vegan pledge

    Phoenixville resident Allison Memmo Geiger is already a vegan. But she’s encouraging others to adopt the lifestyle as part of the Vegan Pledge — a 30-day period during which time 30 people embrace a vegan lifestyle through s support network.

     

    Geiger will host a support group, assist with grocery shopping and create care packages to help participants get through the 30 days, after which time they’re free to choose their own diet, the Phoenix reports.

    The Pledge, which began in the UK and landed in Philadelphia last year, gives people a taste of a lifestyle they might not have normally tried.
