January Key Dates

As we begin the new year, it's important to organise your business calendar and start preparing for those all important key dates throughout 2023.

Why Observe Key Dates as a Business?

  • To celebrate relevant events with your customers and followers
  • To build and grow your business community
  • To create urgency within your community around annual or limited time events
  • For exposure and discoverability (don’t forget to use relevant and trending hashtags when posting about the event on social media!)

Here are some key dates to add to your business calendar this January:

1st - 31st January - Veganuary #Veganuary #Veganuary2023 #VeganuaryEats

What is Veganuary?
Veganuary is an annual challenge that encourages people to try out a vegan lifestyle throughout the month of January.

Ways to observe:

  • Challenge yourself and your co-workers to go vegan for the month
  • Organise a team lunch at a local vegan restaurant
  • Share your favourite vegan recipes online with your followers

1st - 31st January - Regenuary #Regenuary

What is Regenuary?
Not sold on veganism? You can still do your bit for the planet, thanks to Regenuary. Regenuary encourages people to engage in discussions surrounding food production and consumption, no matter what diet you choose to follow.

Ways to observe:

  • Source your food from regenerative producers throughout the month of January
  • Purchase from local suppliers (to reduce transportation) and support small producers
  • Share tips and ideas with your followers on how they can get involved with Regenuary too!
