As January 2022 is now officially underway, you might be one of the many people taking part in Veganuary .

A similar concept to Dry January, where people give up alcohol for the month, Veganuary is when people try to avoid consuming animal products during the first month of the year.

If you’re taking part, you might have already stocked up on popular vegan sweeties and snacks .

But you can also take it one step further and go plant-based with products around your home.

Be realistic. Unrealistic goals will only prevent you from growing. There are two common mistakes a dog owner can make that will slam the brakes hard on any potential progress you might be hoping for. First, the expectations we place on our dogs and ourselves. The misguided belief that your dog “should” be performing or responding at a certain predetermined level. Another mistake many owners make is having unrealistic assumptions. Many of us assume that our dog understands what we want and that he knows what we’re asking of him. As if that wasn’t bad enough, some of us assume that the dogs failure to perform means he’s either rebelling, stubborn, or just plain stupid.

From eco-friendly duvets to 100% plant-based pet food, here are some of the best vegan products for your home.
