As part of Pride Month, we are celebrating vegan members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

As some of you may remember, in June 2021 we re-launched our VEG 1 multivitamin with plastic-free packaging. Since then, a lot has happened! As we’re celebrating our one-year plastic-free birthday, we’ve taken some time to reflect over the past year and share seven key highlights with you.

If you are pledging to try vegan for the month, naturally, you will have many questions. Most of us are raised eating a diet that includes animal products, and so cutting these out can be as daunting as it is exciting. It’s important to get answers to any nutritional concerns and be aware of current recommendations around supplementation.

As farmers recently convened for the annual Oxford Farming and Oxford Real Farming conferences, we ask Rich Hardy – a new entrant vegan farmer – to share his experiences after his first year of growing in Cornwall.

Without drastic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in our food and agriculture, the goals of the Paris Agreement and the 1.5°C or 2°C climate targets cannot be achieved.

We’ve teamed up with the Royal Osteoporosis Society to make a video about how to look after our bones.

Why it’s important for everyone to know about iodine, and simple solutions to help vegans get enough. 

This mental health awareness week we look at one person’s experience of what it is like to live with anxiety as a vegan and what they do to protect their mental health.
