Vegan is the buzzword on everyone’s lips this month, as January 2020 has become known as ‘Veganuary’…
In a cause similar to Movember or Sober October, this means people worldwide are pledging to ditch meat and dairy for the entirety of the month, while also giving their beauty wardrobes a vegan overhaul.
