The Year of the Vegan: Changing your Habits for a Better You and a Better World
Closely following the arrival of the New Year, now is the time many make resolutions to carry out throughout the remainder of the year. But this year, thousands of people are pledging to do something new — Veganism.
20,000 people pledged to go vegan and abandon all animal food products for the month of January, in an effort to create tremendous positive change in their health and the planet. We here at Revived Staples recently released a new Vegan Tee designed to support Veganuary, as well as a way to continually be fashionable, positive and eco-friendly.
The campaign founded by Veganuary aims to reduce the suffering of billions of animals, help our planet and help you discover exciting and delicious food. Veganuary aims to reduce the suffering of animals by inspiring and supporting people across the globe to go vegan for the month of January. Jane Fond, the founder of Veganuary, an international initiative, says, “It’s not just about a healthier lifestyle. Going vegan also has benefits for the environment and helps reduce cruelty to for animals.”
Among Veganuary supporters are several celebrities, such as fashion designer Vivienne Westwood; actors Martin Shaw, Peter Egan and Kellie Bright; and the poet Benjamin Zephaniah. Zephaniah said:
“Embracing the month of Veganuary is a great way to start the year; it could even be the way to start a new life. You’ll be feeling much better for it.”
One of the best things about assimilating into a Vegan lifestyle is that it does not just transcend into what you consume or let into your body. You can experiment with your fashion choices as well. Vegan fashion brands are not uncommon and you might be surprised to know that some of your favorite labels, like Three Leaves, Olsen Haus, NOAH, and Della, are actually Vegan.
Some mainstream brands that also include animal-friendly lines from time-to-time include; American Apparel, H&M, Helly Hansen, Mango, Topshop and Free People. An extensive list can be found here.
