What is Sustainable September 2020? | Our 5 Key Commitments

Welcome to Sustainable September 2020! 

We are thrilled to be bringing you a month jam-packed full of educational and engaging content surrounding many environmental and sustainabilityfocused hot topics 

We understand that the environment and sustainability are two integral parts of veganism and extremely important in why many people choose to go vegan. This is why we have dedicated a whole month to provide educational content in this area, opening up important conversations and learning together. 

What is Sustainable September?  

During Sustainable September, we will be providing a large variety of content across all of our channels, ranging from educational pieces, videos to DIY upcycling ideas. We are also bringing you our first virtual Sustainability Summit, where we have found the best influential speakers to share stories and discuss important topics.  

More information surrounding the content this month will be visible on our social media platforms and in emails – keep an eye out for what is to come. You don’t want to miss out! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for exciting updates: @myvegan / myvegan.

Why is being vegan sustainable? 

Since the late 1960s, the human population has doubled – not to mention meat production has almost quadrupled.1 Plant-based dietary living only requires one-third of the land needed compared to meat and dairy diets,2 making veganism a more sustainable option by reducing the strain on our planet’s resources. 

Let’s make a difference this Sustainable September, one bite at a time.
