A recent survey conducted by Voucher Codes on over 2000 people discovered that 2,662,900 Brits will be aiming to avoid eating and using animal products as part of Veganuary in the New Year. Indeed, 1 in 20 (5%) will not consume meat or dairy products in January – making Veganuary as popular as those attempting Dry January (6%).
It seems as though young adults (18-24 years) are most interested in Veganuary as a tenth opt to try the month long Vegan lifestyle.
The question is, is Veganuary taking over Dry January? Will people opt to do one rather than both? Will people drown their cheese withdrawl symptoms in (vegan) wine?
The survey also discussed New Years resolutions and the reasoning behind making them. A third of Brits (37%) say they undertake a New Year’s resolution to improve their health and well-being, while a quarter (27%) do it to challenge themselves. For some, however, it is an opportunity to prove they can achieve something they have previously failed to do (15%).
Included in the top New Years Resolutions are:
– Save More Money (44%)
– Exercise More (44%)
– Eat More Healthily (40%)
– Read more books (23%)
– Learn a new skill (18%)
Did you make any New Years Resolutions for 2019?
