Would you go vegan to save the planet?
With only a few days left until 2020, some people might be thinking about their new year’s resolutions already.
The non-profit organisation Veganuary is trying to get more and more people to ditch meat for the first 31 days of the next decade to help fight the climate crisis.
The UK-based charity – which lines up among their ambassadors the likes of artist Paul McCartney, actor Joaquin Phonenix and comedian Sarah Pascoe – has already involved 500,000 people from 178 different countries in the campaign since it started in 2014.
There are many reasons that push people to go for a vegan January, according to Veganuary.
One of the most common ones is the desire to protect animals and prevent them from being killed in “factory farms” and slaughterhouses.
Contributing to fight the climate crisis is also very important for those who go vegan, as animal farming is one of the main contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, according to Veganuary.
