Take the CHALLENGE – Try VEGANUARY!28/12/2021
Veganuary is a non-profit organisation that encourages people worldwide to try vegan for January and beyond. During the 2021 campaign, more than 500,000 people took our pledge to try a vegan diet, while more than 825 new vegan products and menu options were launched in our key campaign countries.
Throughout the year, Veganuary encourages and supports people and businesses alike to move to a plant-based diet as a way of protecting the environment, preventing animal suffering, and improving the health of millions of people.
Impact: we are committed to a vegan world; we will utilise research to evaluate how the highest number of lives can be spared and direct resources to that end.
Empowerment: we will optimise our outreach to support and encourage people on their vegan journey in a non-judgmental, positive, constructive, and easily accessible way.
Collaboration: by partnering with other mission-driven organisations and working closely with businesses, we will make a bigger difference.
Diversity and inclusion: we know that it takes people with different ideas, strengths, interests and backgrounds to achieve our vision; we appreciate the value of this and how it brings us closer to achieving our mission.
Respect and integrity: in all internal and external relationships, we will strive for genuine, honest, and transparent communication.
Resilience: we will continue to create a professional and sustainable (human, social, economic and environmental) organisation.
‘TAKE CLIMATE ACTION INTO YOUR OWN HANDS THIS JANUARY’
Veganuary’s Head of Communications, Toni Vernelli, says: “Climate change is at the forefront of everyone’s mind and one key solution is at everyone’s finger-tips – their fork.” She added: “Although changing our diets is crucial to cutting greenhouse gas emissions, it can seem daunting. Signing up to Veganuary makes it much easier as our free pledge is full of helpful tips and advice, including a seven-day low carbon meal plan highlighting simple swaps that slash the carbon footprint of classic British dishes.”
A recent survey* found that six months after completing their one-month Veganuary challenge, 82% of those participants who were not vegan when they signed-up had maintained a dramatic reduction in their animal product consumption. Thirty per cent were still eating a fully vegan diet, 38% were eating at least 75% less meat and other animal products than pre-Veganuary and 14% were eating at least 50% less.
Veganuary inspires people all over the world to try vegan for January and beyond. Millions of people have already taken part. Will you join them?
