Veganuary is more than a mouthful, it’s a month of culinary adventure that comes to you and it’s taking over South Africa.
Every January, people all over the world start the new year with a plant-based diet for a month or more in a campaign called “Veganuary”. Vegan lifestyle is a commitment to yourself, animals, and the earth and the Veganuary campaign’s glowing supporters include well-known personalities like actor Joaquin Phoenix, who thinks global and personal issues are no joke.
“If you look at the climate crisis or the violence of our food system,” he says, “and feel helpless, thinking ‘I wish there was something I could do’– you can. Right now. Sign up to try vegan this January.”
