Jane Land

Co-founder of Veganuary

Jane’s life as an English teacher changed the day she met a vegan (who’s now her husband!). She went from vegetarian to vegan and swapped her Shakespeare texts for the Animal Activist Handbook. On a mission to reduce animal suffering, they founded Veganuary – a charity that encourages 1000s of people to try vegan for January.
