We’re proud to be supporting Veganuary again for 2022!

Veganuary is the global pledge to try vegan for 31 days. This year, Veganuary saw an even bigger increase than last year, with more than 580,000 people from 209 countries taking part in Veganuary 2021 by signing-up to give a vegan diet a try.

Veganuary predict even more numbers of people signing up and getting involved for 2022 and we are collectively encouraging everyone who cares about climate change to take part this January. Together, we can take climate action into our own hands.

Naturalist, Chris Packham, who took part in Veganuary in 2019, is encouraging everyone who cares about climate change to sign up this January in the charity’s new campaign video. He’s joined by Hollyoaks star Eva O’Hara, Emmerdale’s James Moore, TV presenter Jasmine Harman, Dirty Sanchez star Matt Pritchard and Writer and Poet, Benjamin Zephaniah, with heartfelt messages of encouragement.

If you sign up, you will receive a recipe cookbook, meal plans, guidance and more!

Veganuary Q&A

What is Veganuary?

Veganuary is a UK non-profit organization that promotes veganism by encouraging people to follow a vegan lifestyle for the month of January. It started in 2014 and has grown rapidly since then, with over 580,000 people from 209 countries taking part worldwide in 2021. Veganuary offer daily email support to participants, helping them to successfully complete a vegan month. Participants aim to only eat vegan food and also not to buy any non-vegan clothes, cosmetics or other items during the month. The Vegan Society became an official Veganuary partner in 2020 and is partnering with them again for the 2021 campaign.
