Interest, excitement and understanding of veganism is at an all-time high amongst young people.
That’s why The Vegan Society has relaunched its Youth Membership offer for a second year running. Aimed at those aged under 26, the Youth Membership costs just £5 for 12 months* and help us create a more compassionate and sustainable world.
It’s currently estimated that around 25% of all vegans in the UK are aged between 15-24. Meanwhile a new survey published by BBC Good Food last month found that 8% of children aged five to 16 are already following a vegan diet, while 15% said they would like to be vegan.
Stephen Sanders, Supporters Services Coordinator at The Vegan Society, said: “Whether it’s using TikTok to educate others on animal rights and welfare, peaceful school strikes to demonstrate the damage we’re causing the planet or just a general concern over health and wellbeing - there’s no denying that children are leading the charge when it comes to important social issues. That’s why we are so excited to relaunch our Youth Membership.”
“The Youth Membership is not only accessible financially but unlocks access to resources that will provide inspiration and guidance for young people on the vegan way of life. Fully vegan, almost-vegan or just vegan curious; wherever you are on your vegan journey, The Vegan Society is here to help.”
There are great benefits to joining too.
Like full membership, signing up for Youth Membership means you will get access to 10% off our multivitamin, VEG 1, and over 100 third party discounts such as 10% off at Brave Foods, ETHCS Clothing and Holland and Barrett and 20% off at Green Box Botanicals and Raw Halo Chocolate. Our discounts are there to help with every aspect of living a vegan lifestyle, from clothing to wear, cosmetics to use and even places to go on holiday.
As part of being a member you will also get a subscription to the digital version of The Vegan magazine. This is published every quarter and features essential updates on all of our recent work as well as interviews with influential vegans, recipes, competitions, advice, shopping and more.
Our dietitians Heather and Andrea are here to answer your queries. At The Vegan Society, we have extensive nutritional resources. However, if you have something on your mind that isn't covered in our resources, you can contact our dietitians through our Nutrition Hub in the Members' Area.
