Last year a record breaking 250,000 people took part in “Veganuary”. Living without animal products during January, with daily recipes and shopping ideas from the wonderful team at Veganuary.
VeggieVision TV and Plant Powered Expo presenter Karin Ridgers was one of the first to know about Veganuary at the end of 2013 – before it was even a thing!
“We were so excited with the idea and it is inspirational how much Veganuary grows each year.”
However what happens after Veganuary achievement…….?
What will you do next to keep the momentum going?

“Here at Plant Based Expo we have everything you need whether you are vegan curious, a Veganuary participant, a big foodie or just simply would like to enjoy a great event.” founder Tim Barford says.
“Plant Powered Expo, is a brand-new festival focusing on the benefits of a plant-based way of life, and we are descending upon Olympia London on February 1st 2nd 2020, offering Veganuary participants as well as wannabe vegans and the plant-based curious further support to ensure a smooth transition to plant-based living after January.”
