Be a Part of Veganuary 2024 - Try Vegan this January!

Are you ready to kickstart your new year with a positive change? Veganuary, the global movement that encourages people to embrace a vegan lifestyle for the month of January, is back, and this time, it's making waves in India! 🇮🇳✨

The Rise of Veganuary in India

India, known for its diverse cuisine and cultural heritage, is increasingly joining the Veganuary movement. In 2023, the number of Indian participants surged, showcasing the growing interest in plant-based living in the country.

Veganuary India is expecting a record number of participants in its 2024 campaign after a YouGov survey revealed that 59% of Indians are likely to consider a vegan diet in the near future.

74% of respondents believed a vegan diet was healthy, 72% said it was good for the environment, and 73% thought that it helped to stop animal exploitation. 62% said they thought the vegan lifestyle was easy to maintain, while 61% believed there were enough vegan food choices. 55% said that the diet does not mean compromising on taste.

“The reasons for a vegan diet being popular among Indian youth are interesting,” said Prashanth Vishwanath, Country Director at Veganuary India. “While 6 out of 10 people attribute it to increased health consciousness, specific reasons such as achieving an ideal body weight are more among flexitarians. This shows that a vegan diet is for everyone, regardless of age, gender, motivation, and previous diets. The Indian public has voted for change, and helped by Veganuary’s range of free resources and guidance, they can exercise their choice to transition into a healthier plant-based lifestyle.”  (Source: vegconomist)
