Are you looking for a New Year’s resolution that will benefit your health, the planet, and animals?

You may be surprised to learn that by making one change, you can achieve these win-win-win results. That change is veganism.

As people become more aware of the devastating effects animal-based diets have on our bodies and the environment, and the underlying cruelty of eating animals, they are finding veganism an effective and meaningful solution. Veganism doesn’t require legislation, capital investments or personal sacrifices. It only takes a decision to start, a little planning, and some relatively simple changes to develop new and better habits.

If you’re open to the idea but not sure where to start, this article offers some tips and suggestions.

January offers a great time to dip your toes in veganism, particularly through the Veganuary challenge. Veganuary started in 2014 in the United Kingdom and has expanded to more than 200 countries and territories.
