Our vision is simple; we want a vegan world. A world without animal farms and slaughterhouses. A world where food production does not decimate forests, pollute rivers and oceans, exacerbate climate change, and drive wild animal populations to extinction.
“VEGANUARY!!! Yes! It’s done – and I loved it. Not a morsel of meat or fish or dairy passed my lips. It was so much easier than I expected, and gave me so much.”
“Veganuary’s mission is to make the world a kinder, safer, happier place for all, which makes their January campaign utterly irresistible.”
“Veganuary set to pass 2m milestone as more firms join movement.”
“It’s boomtime for Veganuary as retailers rush to join the trend. Thousands sign up to stick to a plant-based diet next month, while hundreds of vegan food launches are in pipeline.”
“‘Veganuary’ wants to be your new food resolution for 2020 — and beyond.”
“Veganuary, which asks people to ditch meat this month, has emerged as this year’s trendy resolution.”
“Retailers report huge demand for plant-based takeaway foods amid record Veganuary”
“The soaring popularity of Veganuary has led to a raft of shortages of the UK’s biggest plant-based brands.”
“Veganuary 2021: Record numbers go animal product-free for January”
“Veganuary “clearly affected” consumer behaviour…more than twice as many people purchased a product labelled “plant-based” from a supermarket in January 2020 than in December 2019.”
“If you look at the climate crisis or the violence of our food system and feel helpless, thinking ‘I wish there was something I could do’- you can. Right now. Sign up to try vegan this January.”
TV Personality & Influencer
“Loving animals and eating them too never made sense to me; that’s why I went veggie aged 6 and then later turned to veganism. It was the best decision I’ve ever made & I’ve enjoyed it so much more than I could have ever expected. It feels good to do the right thing. I know it can be a daunting prospect for some, Veganuary is here to help guide you.”
“I’ve been vegetarian for over 40 years and have stayed with it because I believe that every meat-free meal is a win for animals and the planet. This is why I started Meat Free Monday with my daughters Mary and Stella, and it’s also why I support Veganuary. We’re all trying to make the world a bit better, so why not sign up, take part, give it a go, and see how you feel? It could be the best thing you ever did.”
Wildlife TV Presenter
“As I’ve become more and more aware of our impact, the impact our diet has on the environment – and of course the species that live in it – I’ve become increasingly concerned to minimise the negative aspects of that impact.”
Author and Poet
“I originally went vegan at the age of 13 because of my love of animals. Then I realised how ethically sound veganism was. The world now knows that vegan is the way to go. It’s the one thing we can all do to help heal the world and ourselves. Veganuary is a great way to start the year, and it’s also a great way to start the future.”
“I’ve loved Veganuary’s work for a long time because I know, having been a vegetarian who was intimidated by veganism, that so many people just won’t start because they think it’s too hard and that they’re going to fail. And Veganuary presents you an opportunity to do it with other people, with a community, and it’s not saying it’s a lifelong commitment, it’s saying ‘try it for a month and see how you feel’.”
“I decided that I was going to do 100 days being vegan, and I was going to write it up and see how I felt. But within a week I felt so much better in my body that it then became ‘oh I am definitely going to do this forever.’ My digestion immediately improved, and that thing where you feel a little bit glowy, where people say you look well, and you say ‘well actually, I’m vegan.”
New York City Mayor
“No matter what your past habits or family traditions might have been, you always have the power to choose to eat healthier. You can incorporate foods that tie into your heritage while reinventing comfort food the way it was always intended: as healing for the mind, body, and soul. Try vegan this Veganuary!”
