The start of a new year is a time for folks to start making resolutions and changing their lives. They often have great plans and schemes that revolve around new jobs, adventures, being more ecofriendly or what might be the most common: getting healthy.

At Orange Orchard, we get it. Some of us are coming up with resolutions, too. As a vegan public relations agency, we’re constantly on the lookout for opportunities to improve our own well-being and that of those around us. If you’re looking to be healthier — and friendlier to the planet — we know of a great way for you to kickstart 2020.

Take the pledge

Have you heard of Veganuary? It’s a really cool organization that encourages folks to try vegan during the month of January. The ultimate goal is that those who try it will continue on once the month ends. In 2019, more than a quarter of a million people took the Veganuary pledge, and more than 500 brands, restaurants and grocery stores promoted the campaign.

Veganuary’s website offers helpful recipes, eating guides and other information to help you make it through the month. All of the meals are covered, from breakfast to dessert. There are even snacks! And with so many companies offering plant-based and meat alternatives, it’s easier than you think to stick to a vegan diet. Veganuary helps you take the first step to a healthier you as well as a healthier planet.
