Vegan Australia partner charity Vegan Easy has created an entertaining new video series (featured below). These are great resources to share with new vegans and plant-curious friends and family. The videos were released to coincide with the June Vegan Easy Challenge. You can try vegan anytime with the free, recipe-packed and dietitian-approved 30 Day Challenge here..
The June Challenge
The June 30 Day Vegan Easy Challenge saw hundreds of Aussies signing up for a fun-filled, supportive and productive month. Plenty of recipes were exchanged and insightful questions asked by Challengers in the Facebook support group, where seasoned vegan mentors provided encouragement, tips and resources to help people stay on track. Thousands of dollars of fabulous prizes were generously donated by vegan businesses and organisations, and given away via the Vegan Easy and Vegan Australia socials.
Some interesting June Challenge stats:
- Just over 50% of the people who signed up to take the Challenge did so for animal rights. Other reasons included health and fitness and the environment.
- 87% of Challengers identified as female, 11% male, and 2% preferred not to reveal their gender. This breakdown is similar to that reflected overall each year in the Challenge with around 80% female to 20% male participants on average.
- 75% of those who completed the Challenge survey said they would continue being vegan, while others are now more open to implementing a kinder way of living into the future.
Each of the new videos ties into one of the daily emails received by Challenge participants. Sign up to join the Challenge and get the emails.
