7 Day or 30 Day Pledge?
Are you ready to feel healthier, lighter and more vibrant? Do you wish to live knowing you're reducing your effect on the environment and doing what you can for animals around the world? There is a simple action you can take that will have a positive effect not just on you but on many other lives.
The Vegan Society's 7 Day Pledge or 30 Day Pledge are simple steps you can take as you investigate and learn more about the benefits of a plant-based diet. You’ll receive hints & tips and links & advice to help you begin your journey - allowing you to really sink your teeth into this plant-based diet and lifestyle!
Q: Do I need to be vegan to take the pledge?
A: The pledge is intended for people who aren’t vegan but are curious about veganism; or those who may have attempted it before and wish to try again in a more determined manner. If you’re already a vegan why not head over to our Take action pages to discover other ways to become involved.
Q: I ate cake that had dairy in it – do I have to start at the beginning again?
A: Not at all – sometimes even the most careful vegans get tripped up by something. We all do the best we can and just by making a conscious decision to try being vegan for a week or a month you have shown that you are already thinking about your choices differently.
Q: I have a specific question – where can I get help?
A: Our Resources section is full of lifestyle information, nutrition advice, recipes and answers to frequently asked questions. Yet if you feel you have a question that only a human can answer, then why not contact your local Vegan Society representative, or pop over to our Facebook and Twitter channels?
Over the many years we’ve been running the vegan pledge we’ve received many emails from people telling us how much easier they found it than expected, and that they wish they’d known about or had made the decision to give the vegan lifestyle a try years ago. Many people say it’s a change that makes them feel healthier, happier and more content. They tell us that knowing they are doing the best they can for themselves, for the planet and for animals everywhere was the best thing they ever did.
They have – will you?
