January can be rather a strange month. The festive period is over and as we enter a New Year, people often look for ways to get off to a good start with healthier living habits and new years resolutions. Veganuary has become a popular challenge in January with people following a vegan diet for the month. A great way to wind down after all of the indulgences from Christmas and a way to test out veganism for yourself.
Veganuary is a campaign that promotes and supports veganism, encouraging people to follow a vegan lifestyle for the month of January. It has become increasingly popular since it began back in 2014 and participants across the world join in. Anyone taking part in Veganuary aims to eat only vegan food (products that are not derived from animals) and where possible buy and use only vegan-friendly clothes, cosmetics and other household items.
Veganism is not just about diet. As mentioned above, vegans often avoid all animal products which is often driven by their compassion for the animals. There are a vast array of items including clothing, accessories, makeup and bathroom items that often contain animal products or are tested on animals. However, today there is much wider availability of alternative products. For those attempting Veganuary for the first time, you may like to start slow and focus on your diet but if you are up for the challenge then it’s worth considering any household products and everyday items you use also.
It may sound a little daunting and like a huge commitment, but trying out Veganuary can help you to start the New Year a little healthier and, following a vegan diet even just for a short period of time, offers a range of various benefits.
