The Vegan Marketing Calendar for 2021 - 250 Days You Can Get Publicity On


Well, this list became a bit larger than I was anticipating. A common question from you is hopefully now answered - where's a list of all the marketing promotion days that are relevant for vegan companies?


Yes, there's 250 days here. But, not each of them will be relevant for your business. Some are more simple to match than others. Do you sell Sangria? Then by golly market yourself on Sangria Day! Do you sell vegan cheese? Then Sangria Day is a perfect match for you too!


Yes, there's a bunch of meat days in the list too. No, I'm not promoting the sale of meat. Do you sell alternative meat? Then jump on the meat days and direct some attention to your epic plant based alternatives! Do you make protein rich meals that don't look like meat? You deserve the attention too!


To make things a little less overwhelming I've colour coded the list:

  • Green = Environmental

  • Purple = Vegan Specific

  • Blue = Food

  • Red = Meat or non-vegan

Not everything will be relevant to your brand, and nor should you be promoting a list of 250 days. Run through the list and cherry pick days that are relevant to your brand. Jump on the trend and you'll see more and farther reaching engagement.


This list will be regularly updated so don't forget to drop you email below to get the latest in your inbox (and the 2022 reveal).
