ryanocok Blog

Happy New Year! As we rang in 2019, our resolution was to make 2019 the Year of the Vegan, and those efforts paid off in huge legal victories, groundbreaking investigations, and successful corporate campaigns. We’ve worked hard to make vegan eating easier than ever, so now it’s your turn to transform your 2020. 

Is your New Year’s resolution to go vegan, take control of your health, be kinder to the environment, or…to just continue doing all of those things? Either way, here are a few ways you can make an even bigger impact in 2020. 

1. Try veg!

This new year, resolve to leave animals off your plate. By making a simple switch to vegan foods, we can safeguard animals, our health, and the environment. To get started, check out all our free recipes and tips on TryVeg.com and sign up for TryVeg Tuesdays, COK’s weekly newsletter with vegan recipes, stories, calls to action, and more.

2. Share vegan eating with friends and family

You don’t have to do it alone. By sharing your new compassionate choices with others, you can help spread the message, and maybe even get some friends to join you on your new journey. Try mastering vegan baking to share with coworkers, or listen to the Vegan Family Podcast for tips on how to talk to your family about farmed animals.

3. Share the truth to fight factory farming

Why not use the powerful tool of social media to be a voice for animals? COK’s eye-opening undercover investigations reveal the truth behind the closed doors of animal agribusiness–but the truth can’t get out there without your help. To help us spread the word, share investigation footage or a thought-provoking piece from COK’s Voices of Compassion blog.

4. Follow COK for daily motivation

We’re here every day bringing you stories of farmed animals, groundbreaking investigations, and updates on what we’re doing for animals every day. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to keep up with it all and share exciting articles and recipes. 

5. Make your voice heard–sign and share a petition

Signing and sharing a COK petition is easy and quick–and it has a huge impact. Our petitions show just how many people are demanding more compassionate foods and policies. Sign and share one of our active petitions today to: urge Dunkin’ to offer a vegan donut, tell Martha Stewart to stop supporting cruel salmon farming, and ask the USDA to put a stop to high-speed slaughter once and for all.

6. Lend your support
