Tranmere Rovers team up with VIVA! for Veganuary

7 January 2022

Earlier this month Tranmere Rovers ,following the the 2021 COP summit, realised their plans on how to make the Club more environmentally friendly, and to lessen our carbon footprint. 

In line with the Club’s current work Rovers have joined forces with vegan charity Viva! In a bid to raise awareness of the environmental benefits of a vegan based diet.

If the world went vegan by 2050 it could save 8 million lives, reduce greenhouse gas emissions by two thirds, and could lead to health-care related savings and avoided climate damages of $1.5 trillion.

Health benefits of a vegan diet can include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and improved kidney function, as well as protecting against some cancers and lowering the risk of heart disease.

Veganuary 2020 saw a sharp increase in supporters, with 400,000 pledging to ditch meat and dairy, up from 3,300 when it first began in 2014.

The Club will be sharing content on their social media channels throughout the month of January to educate fans of the benefits of a vegan based diet and encouraging them to take part in the January campaign.

The partnership will also see Tranmere’s players and staff given access to Viva!’s Sports ResourcesWhile  football fans are being given access to Kicking Off Veganism Properly
