The idea behind the event is to encourage restaurants to make vegetarian food more “fun”, and offer more variety rather than just salads or steamed veggies, which tend to put off people from having vegetarian food. By making it more accessible, fun and tasty, people are more incentivized to increase vegetarian food in their diet and reduce their carbon footprint, while choosing a healthier lifestyle at the same time.
