Thousands of people have signed up to this year’s Summer Vegan Pledge, organised by animal rights organisation, Animal Aid.

The Summer Vegan Pledge is a 30-day pledge for non-vegans to try a vegan diet for the month of June. Last year, more than 3,700 people took part with 53% remaining vegan afterwards and an additional 44% reducing their consumption of animal products.

So far, more than 3,000 people have pledged to go vegan this June, with more expected to sign up.

Says Animal Aid Campaign Manager, Tod Bradbury: “We are so happy to see that so many people have pledged to go vegan this June. The Summer Vegan Pledge offers those who are curious or interested in trying veganism the opportunity to do so in a supportive and non-judgemental environment. Not only is a plant-based diet kinder to animals, but it is better for the planet and healthy, too. There really is no downside.”

There is still time to sign up for this year’s Summer Vegan Pledge. It is free to sign up and participants will get all of the help and advice that they need to stay vegan throughout the month, including:

• A free welcome pack full of recipes, advice about nutrition, tips on shopping and more.

• Regular updates throughout the month to keep them motivated and informed.

• Access to exclusive social media channels for sharing tips and advice.

• Details about vegan events and special offers.

• One-to-one help if need be.

This year’s Summer Vegan Pledge has been backed by celebrities and well-known faces, including Countdown star Rachel Riley, Host of A Place in the Sun Jasmine Harman and actor Peter Egan.
