Veganuary encourages people around the world to try going vegan for January. There are many reasons why you might choose to go vegan, but this year the organisation behind Veganuary is throwing the spotlight on how a vegan lifestyle can reduce your environmental impact with an advert featuring Bigfoot.

According to a recent YouGov survey of just over 2,000 British people, a record 34% were interested in trying a vegan diet. “As more people become aware of the incredible impact our food choices have on the health of our planet, attitudes towards eating vegan are changing,” says Toni Vernelli, Veganuary’s head of communications. “It is incredibly exciting to see one-third of Brits are interested in trying a plant-based diet, something that would have been inconceivable just a few years ago.”

Going vegan – even for a month – brings a new set of challenges. How do you keep your diet varied, nutritious and interesting? Sign up to join the free Veganuary challenge (opens in new tab) and you’ll have access to plenty of free recipes, resources, inspiring daily emails and support from others undertaking the challenge.
