With Veganuary in full swing, this year’s challenge has already drawn the biggest response since the pledge began in 2014.
More than 440,000 people have already signed up for the 31-day vegan challenge – surpassing 2020’s total of 400,000 – and sign-ups are continuing.
Whether you are embracing Veganuary for animal welfare, to help the planet or as a health choice, there’s no need to make sacrifices on luxury when it comes to choosing vegan products.
