Veganuary 2020 – 14 vegan-friendly restaurants and cafés in Inverness
VEGANUARY is a non-profit organisation which started out in 2014.
Their aim is for as many people as possible to try a vegan diet for the entire month of January, with the hope you'll stick to, or at least take inspiration from and use fewer animal products.
