The mythical creature joins more than a million worldwide who have tried a vegan diet

New Delhi (India), December 27: Veganuary, the global pledge to try vegan for 31 days, has a new supporter- Bigfoot. A video of the mythical creature – voiced by Hollywood actor James Cromwell – surfaced yesterday where he was seen signing up to Veganuary to cut his carbon Bigfoot print.

Living alone in the woods, hardly seen by anyone, Bigfoot felt disconnected from the world and the scenes of climate chaos he saw on social media. But when his best friend Snowman melted to the ground, Bigfoot realised he IS connected to the rest of the world and must do his part to save it. So, he decided to change his diet with the help of Veganuary.

James, star of Succession, Six Feet Under and the Christmas classic Babe, says: “Do the planet and yourself a favour. Take the Veganuary challenge. Make a difference with little or no effort.”

 The cheeky, fun video premieres worldwide on December 27th, as Veganuary aims to reach 2 million participants this year, since its launch in 2014. The ambitious target is powered by massive growth in interest towards plant-based eating in India. A 2019 study reported that 63% of Indians were keen to replace meat with plant-based options. Additionally, there is a growing realization that a vegan diet has multiple benefits. Almost half of the Veganuary 2021 participants said they did it for the animals. 22% participated for personal health and 21% for the environment.

India had the third highest Veganuary participants in 2021, with Bengaluru the top city in the country. Euromonitor International has noted that the ongoing pandemic has exposed the health, safety, and supply chain vulnerabilities of animal meat and that Indian companies selling vegan products are seeing a 40-60% jump in demand since the onset of the pandemic. The Good Food Institute India projects that over the next five to seven years, the smart protein market in India may touch $1 billion.

Veganuary India head, Prashanth Vishwanath, says: Bigfoot may be mythical, but the need for urgent climate action is real. Changing our diets is crucial for this – and taking part in Veganuary is the perfect place to start!”

 More than 582,000 people from 209 countries and territories officially took part in Veganuary in 2021, and this year is set to be even bigger as the campaign has officially launched in India for 2022. With campaign hubs now in the UK, US, Germany, Argentina, Chile, Brazil and India, Veganuary is truly a global phenomenon.

  9. Thanks for the tips about credit repair on your blog. The thing I would tell people will be to give up the mentality they will buy now and pay back later. Like a society many of us tend to make this happen for many factors. This includes vacation trips, furniture, and also items we really want to have. However, you have to separate the wants out of the needs. While you’re working to boost your credit score you really have to make some trade-offs. For example you are able to shop online to save money or you can look at second hand outlets instead of highly-priced department stores regarding clothing.
