Well it’s January, which means one thing: Veganuary is underway!
This year is set to be the biggest and baddest year yet, with a predicted 150,000 people taking part in vegan for January!
Veganuary is in it’s 5th year and has seen a huge drive in vegan converts over the last few years. The move to veganism has been clear throughout 2017 with chain restaurants such as Zizzi’s, Pret, Nandos, ASK, All bar One, Las Iguanas, Prezzo and Carluccios all releasing vegan options and menus, while supermarkets have been stocking their shelves with more and more vegan products than ever before.
It is a predominately youth led move, with increasing numbers of under 35 year olds making the shift to a vegan lifestyle. This is so important as the more people going vegan from a younger age will have more of an impact on the environment as veganism moves through the generations.
I’m so excited to be part of this movement, and couldn’t recommend trying Veganuary enough! It doesn’t matter if you’ve missed the beginning of the month, you can start anytime and your body, the animals and planet with thank you for it!
