What is Veganuary?

Veganuary is a global movement encouraging individuals to adopt a vegan lifestyle for January. Originating in the UK in 2014, the campaign promotes awareness about a plant-based diet’s ethical, environmental, and health benefits. Participants commit to a month-long journey of abstaining from animal products.

Veganuary aims to showcase the accessibility and enjoyment of a vegan lifestyle while demonstrating an understanding of its positive impact on animal welfare and the planet. 

The initiative has gained widespread participation, making it an annual event for individuals worldwide to explore plant-based alternatives and embrace the benefits of vegan living.
