Has Februdairy been a success? - Media Credit:

Februdairy – The Dairy Industry’s Failing Fight Against Vegans

1 Minutes Read

Februdairy – a campaign aimed at promoting the dairy industry – is drawing to a close, with less than a week to go.

The plan aimed to emulate the success of Veganuary – which encourages people to try a vegan diet throughout January – but did it succeed?

The last few weeks has seen the campaign hit a few snags along the way.

Hijack

First of all, vegans hijacked the Februdairy hashtag. At the time of writing, none of the top 20 tweets boasting the hashtag were pro-dairy.

In addition, the campaign’s self-appointed spokeswoman, Livestock Sustainability Expert Dr. Jude Capper, broke one of her own suggestions, and started blocking vegans – including some who hadn’t even engaged with her.

According to Dr. Capper, it is better not to block social media users, lest you appear ‘rattled’.
