Veganuary

What is Veganuary?

Veganuary is both a vegan lifestyle challenge held each year in January and a UK-based charity. The purpose of Veganuary is to encourage and motivate individuals to experience veganism. Last year, Veganuary inspired 629,000 people in 228 countries to participate and follow-up survey results showed 83% of official challenge participants who weren’t vegan had significantly reduced their meat consumption immediately after the event. In 2023, Veganuary reveals 1 person is signing up to take the vegan challenge every 2.4 seconds!


Why veganism?

Participants from previous years who remained on the vegan diet after the 31 days of January, reported having better skin, more energy, and being happier overall. Diets that are entirely or primarily plant-based are often healthier and better for the planet compared to meat-based diets. A vegan diet can allow more calories to be burned after meals and can offer health benefits such as weight reduction, blood sugar control, and cardiovascular health. The benefits of veganism are evident and it’s never too late to join the cause!


How to get involved and succeed this Veganuary!

Planning early and utilizing available resources can help you succeed. It's easy to sign up on the Veganuary website to access free meal plans, nutrition tips, and celebrity chef-curated cookbooks. With many food destinations now including animal-free menu items, going vegan doesn't mean sacrificing eating at your favorite restaurants. If you are on the road and need to find vegan food, downloading the HappyCow application can help locate and filter through local vegan options in various countries. Lastly, encouraging family and friends to join you this Veganuary can help you stay motivated.
