Vegan cakes delivered for Veganuary 2022

Veganuary. What’s it all about?

Veganuary was established in 2014 and takes place in January each year. Run by a UK nonprofit organisation, it aims to promote and educate about veganism. Participants are expected to follow a vegan diet for the month of January.

Participation has increased year on year, as more people lean towards a plant based diet.

  • 2015 – 12,800 people
  • 2016 – 23,000 people
  • 2017 – 50,000 people
  • 2018 – 168,000 people
  • 2019 – 250,000 people
  • 2020 – 400,000 people
  • 2021 – 582,538 people

In 2020 the Veganuary campaign represented the carbon dioxide equivalent of 450,000 flights and the lives of more than a million animals.

Almost half of the UK population (47%) are unaware that going vegan would reduce their carbon footprint by almost half.

How veganism helps the planet

A shift towards a more plant based diet will improve human health and the health of our planet.

This is how veganism can help:

Reduces the impact of climate change
Food production is responsible for up to 30% of total greenhouse gas emissions. Animal products account for about 3/4 of this. Feeding, killing, processing and transporting animals is incredibly energy-intensive. Forests are being destroyed to supply land for agriculture. Consequently, absorption of greenhouse gases is reduced across the globe. Animals and the waste they produce contribute to the damage by releasing more greenhouse gasses into the environment.

Improves health
Eating more plants and fewer animal products could help prevent death from diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illness. In addition, a plant based diet will lower blood pressure and cholesterol, therefore improving your health.

Saves water
Agriculture accounts for about 70% of fresh water use. Producing 1lb of beef requires 1,800 gallons of water. That’s a lot of water! In contrast, a considerably lower quantity of water is required to sustain a vegan diet.

Minimises agricultural land use – less deforestation
Agriculture occupies 50% of the worlds habitable land for growing crops, growing feed for animals, rearing/grazing livestock and dairy farming. However, as the human population grows, more land is needed. A plant-based diet requires only one third of the land.

Reduces hunger
Approximately 820 million people around the world lack sufficient food to lead an active and healthy life.
Two thirds of all soybeans, maize & barley are used for animal feed. If these grains were used to feed the developing world, positive change would emerge.
