Food awareness organization ProVeg International has created a new initiative to help people reduce or completely cut out the consumption of animal products.
The Veggie Challenge, which has already garnered more than 160,000 sign-ups, allows participants to choose their own month-long goal.
In a statement sent to Plant Based News, Director at ProVeg South Africa Donovan Will said: “One of the main things that differentiate our challenge from other vegan challenges is participants can sign up for 30 days of veganism, vegetarianism, or even just a few meat-free days a week – so it’s very accessible, even for people who think trying vegan is way too much.”
ProVeg’s website reads: “Join the ProVeg Veggie Challenge and try eating more plant-based for 30 days.
“It’s better for your health, better for the planet and better for animals. Get a healthy start with your personal Challenge. We’ll help you along the way with free tips, recipes and support.”
The announcement follows the re-launch of the industry campaign ‘Meaty March‘ – which aims to replicate Veganuary’s record-breaking success.
The pro-animal product initiative has already been ‘hijacked‘ by vegan company Meatless Farm who recently handed out plant-based burgers to members of the public, before revealing that the meaty patties were actually made from plants.
