Support Vegan Businesses

November 11, 2015

In the first installment of our Compassionate Gift Giving series, we consider the importance of supporting businesses that practice compassion for animals!

Whether you are hosting a holiday party for 20, baking up some of your famous fudge, have the never-ending gift list that includes every member of your family, your pets, your neighbors, and neighbor’s pets, or simply taking the token dish to the holiday office party – it involves spending money!    

Every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want. 

You’ve heard the expression, “vote with your dollars”. Well the same is true in gift-giving! Many vegan businesses start off with the help of kick-starter campaigns. And most of them are built upon the tired backs, sweat, and tears of compassionate people just like you. Don’t let the support fade after the grand opening. And don’t take for granted that they will always be there.

Vegan brands/businesses need your support more than the big box retailers and the (non-vegan) chain restaurants. Every purchase signals to them (and to the market) your growing demand for more, More, MORE: plant-based products, locations, flavors, styles, etc. More vegan-everything, please!

It’s the gift that gives twice: once to your loved ones and once to the vegan businesses that are inspiring to change the world!

Faux vs. Fir: The Christmas Tree Debate

December 17, 2017 1 Comment

It’s commonly believed that buying an artificial Christmas tree saves money and the environment – spending money once, using the tree year after year, and saving a tree from being cut down. With over 34 million harvested trees sold in the US each year compared with 10 million artificial trees, which is the healthier, more eco-friendly choice?
