The organization Animal Friends Croatia has been educating and providing advice for years to help people interested in making positive changes in their lives. They are happy to be able to help you make the best and healthy decisions in your life, in favor of the animals, our planet, as well as other peoples’ and our own health, by switching to a compassionate vegan lifestyle.

Vegan food is intended for everyone, independent of their lifestyle. There is no need to say goodbye to your favorite flavors, traditions, and meals, because there is a healthier and compassionate version for every meal, in the wide range of tasty and delicious vegan products. The main advice for vegan beginners is to enjoy all vegetables, fruits, cereals, legumes, and nuts, and to start their journey in veganism with vegan versions of your favorite popular meals.
The Veganuary campaign started in 2014, with the goal of changing the community's point of view on the vegan lifestyle, and it has been a success ever since. The organizers have published that 500 000 people have subscribed to Veganuary in 2021, which is the highest number ever since its first launch, which has been increasing every year.
This year's Veganuary was highly active in Latin America with around 150 000 subscribers, together with 80 000 in the USA and 50 000 in Germany. New researches made by the investment bank UBS about plant-based alternatives to meat, such as vegan burgers and sausages, has shown that an increasing number of people are trying these products. The percentage of people that have tried alternative products has increased from 48% to 53%, between March and November 2020. The research also shows that half of the people that tried plant-based alternatives have continued eating them at least once a week.
Some people choose a vegan lifestyle for their love towards the animals, others for a more vital life, or for helping the planet. On the other side, some people choose this lifestyle because the bird flu, COVID-19, or other negative side effects of animal farming for meat, dairy products and eggs. Nevertheless of the reasons, the Vege and Veganuary challenges provide information and support to the public, so that everyone can obtain responses to all the questions, and discover an adventurous life of new tastes.
