LAST UPDATED: 14 January 2016

A new year is the perfect time for new beginnings. This January, people across the world are discovering how they can eat well whilst saving animals and protecting the planet. It's called 'Veganuary'.

The idea is simple: eat vegan food for the month of January. Thousands took part last year and we wanted to know what people love most about eating vegan. So we asked. Here's how people responded ...

If you've ever wanted to try cruelty-free living, now is the time. The Veganuary team have everything you need to make your month simple, fun and tasty. Click here to join the movement.

Try vegan for January!

Need some extra motivation? Here's our top 5 reasons for taking animals of your plate in January (or any time):

Because dairy calves aren't 'waste products'

Every year, hundreds of thousands of calves like this little guy are sent to slaughter as 'waste products' of the dairy industry. Born only to keep his mum producing milk for human consumption, his 'job' is over the day he is born. When you try vegan for January you'll be standing up for calves like him.

Because male chicks shouldn't be disposable

By taking part in Veganuary, you'll be saving day-old male chicks from being gassed or tossed live into meat grinders by the egg industry. Since male chicks can't produce eggs and don't grow fast enough to be raised for meat, they are killed on their first day of life. But your month of cruelty-free living will ensure no chicks are harmed for your food.

Because we can live happy, healthy lives without harming others

Eating plant-based foods has been found to reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and some types of cancer. The Veganuary team have a wealth of resources to help you make the switch and kick off 2016 in a healthy, delicious way!

Because we only have one planet

Livestock production is one of the leading causes of all the most serious environmental problems facing our planet today. And with one third of the world's cereal harvest being used to fatten up farmed animals rather than to feed the world's hungry, your choice to try vegan for January will have a positive impact on people and our planet.

Because it's delicious!

Meat-free options in restaurants and supermarkets have taken off in recent years, and for good reason. People want to eat them! Cruelty-free food is not only better for you but it tastes great. We've got tried and tested recipes, plus everything else you need in our FREE starter kit. Order your copy today in preparation for Veganuary.
