Thousands of people have signed up to take the Summer Vegan Pledge this year.

The pledge, created by UK animal rights organization Animal Aid, encourages non-vegans to try a plant-based diet for 30 days in June. It offers participants support, advice, and information throughout.

So far, more than 3,000 people have signed up, with more expected to follow. In 2018, 3,700 people took part, with 53 percent remaining vegan afterward.

Try vegan in June

“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,” Animal Aid Campaign Manager, Tod Bradbury, said.

“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.”

Those who sign up for the pledge will receive 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. They will also get details about vegan events and special offers and one-to-one help if need be.
