The Best Vegan Meats to Try This Veganuary
There are so many reasons to switch to a plant-based diet. In an age where we’re more informed than ever, we can no longer turn a blind eye to the cruelty of the animal agriculture industry and the damage it’s doing to the environment. A leading cause of climate change, air pollution, animal habitat loss and species extinction, our addiction to meat and dairy products is taking a toll on the planet and our health. That’s why hundreds of thousands of us are taking up the Veganuary pledge!
What is Veganuary?
Veganuary is simple. It’s the pledge to avoid all animal products (meat, dairy, seafood, honey etc.) for the month of January. Whether you’re concerned about animal rights, worried about the impact of animal agriculture on the planet or simply looking to eat a healthier diet, there are a multitude of reasons to give a plant-based lifestyle a try in 2020! And with so many awesome meat alternatives on the market, it’ll be a breeze making the change.
