Veganuary: Great vegan options at Penarth cafes and bars

VEGANUARY is back for its ninth year, encouraging people to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

The annual movement challenges people to go vegan throughout January, with more than half a million people from more than 200 parts of the world getting involved last year.

Launched in 2014, Veganuary has grown over the years with people getting involved for many reasons including: health, dietary needs, environment, and for animals.
