World Health Day is celebrated each year on April 7th, to draw attention to specific health concerns affecting people all over the world. This year’s theme is one that is extremely close to our hearts; “Building a fairer, healthier world”. We can’t wait to celebrate with all our amazing fans and show everyone that the Vinny family is always here to help.
COVID-19 has highlighted many pertinent and concerning topics, one of the main ones being the lack of access many have to healthier lives and effective health services.
Put your health first: Our Vinny snacks are 100% plant based with 0% of the guilt. The brands we work with are all about bringing you treats that are good for your health and that avoid those nasty sugar crashes you get elsewhere. Swap your old habits for healthier ones this Wednesday and snack Vinny.
Protect the environment: World Health Day is not only about creating healthier options for everyone, it is also an opportunity for us to create a better world for us to live in. Low and behold, our colourful packaging is completely recyclable and the brands we support promote sustainability above all else. Going plant based not only benefits your health but can also look out for the environment in ways you might not have imagined. A plant-based diet reduces your carbon footprint up to 73%, saves 1,100 gallons of water each day, and contributes to a significant drop in greenhouse gas emissions. Promote more than just healthier living, promote a more sustainable and fair world for all its inhabitants.
Giving back to brands: This pandemic has proved a difficult time for brands and small businesses everywhere. That’s why we have made sure to choose independent, local brands to feature in our Vinny Boxes. Supporting local with us can help you curb those cravings and can help small businesses, like us and the businesses we support, thrive during this difficult time.
Choose to support the less fortunate than you: World Health Day is a chance to put a smile on someone’s face, so why not send a Vinny box to someone who might not be able to afford one, or who would never purchase one for themselves and show them that swapping old habits for healthier ones should be an option open to everyone. If you’re considering this, remember we’re here to help so get in touch and let’s spread that Vinny smile together!
The 7th April is an opportunity for us all to take a step back and see the privileged position we are in. It is a chance to spread some joy and allow others to have access to the health options we do. Happy World Health Day from Team Vinny.
