Veganuary – level 2

04-02-2021 07:00

Veganuary is a campaign that started in 2014, and its idea is to inform people about veganism and make them eat vegan food for the whole January.

In January 2021, 500,000 people joined Veganuary, and they did it for many reasons. Some people wanted to become healthier or they wanted to help the environment. Many people cared about the animals and how they lived on farms.

Many professional sportspeople supported Veganuary, and they said that their lives changed when they became vegan. They had more energy, they felt stronger, and they could train harder. Their friends and teammates could not believe that plants could give people so much energy.

Some people try very hard to become vegan, but they do not enjoy it. Sometimes it is better to simply eat better and think about where food comes from.

Difficult words: campaign (an organized activity that wants to change something), veganism (when people do not eat anything that comes from animals), vegan (a person who does not eat anything that comes from animals; food that does not come from animals), teammate (a person who belongs to the same team).
