The 7-Day Vegan Challenge is exactly what it says on the tin – by signing up and pledging to go vegan for one week, you’ll receive all the help and support you need to go and stay vegan.
Perhaps you’ve been wanting to go vegan for a while, or you’re curious about what veganism is, or maybe you want to reduce your consumption of animal products. Whatever your reason, the 7-Day Vegan Challenge is the perfect place for you to start.
There are many reasons to go vegan – here are 5!
1) It’s kinder to animals
Being vegan is the best thing you can do to help animals. Animals farmed for food have short and miserable lives, before being sent to the slaughterhouse to face a terrifying death. By being vegan you’ll be rejecting these horrific industries.
2) It’s better for the planet
The farming of animals for ‘food’ is one of the biggest causes of greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, land use, fresh water use and water pollution around the world. In comparison, the production of plant-based foods requires less land, fewer resources, and produces vastly fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Research shows that the carbon footprint of a vegan diet can be as much as 60% smaller than a meat-based one.
3) It’s healthy
There isn’t a single nutrient that cannot be obtained from vegan sources. In fact, every major dietetic organisation in the world agrees that a balanced vegan diet provides all the nutrients one needs to live a healthy life. In addition, research shows that those following a plant-based diet have a reduced risk of type-2 diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer.
4) It’s never been easier
These days there are vegan options available in almost every restaurant, café, coffee shop and eatery – in addition to every major supermarket having extensive vegan options.
5) It’s delicious
There are now plant-based versions of all your favourite foods, so going vegan doesn’t mean going without! As well as this, these days there are so many vegan recipe books and recipes available online.
It is free to sign up and you’ll get all the support you need! So why not give it a go? You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
