This week’s vegan winners and losers – week beginning 9/04/2018

Going up…

Cruelty free make up brand Milk has removed all animal ingredients from its products meaning that it is now a 100% vegan brand! You can buy Milk make up in the uk online from London Loves Beauty.

Veganuary

Infographic-2018

Remember that old chestnut? Each year, the Veganuary campaign encourages omnis to try out the vegan lifestyle throughout the month of January. Well, this year was particularly successful with a 138% increase in interest: 168,542 applicants – compared with just 59,500 last year, and only 23,000 in 2016. And fantastic news – according to the survey done by Veganuary, 62% of respondants said that they intended to stay vegan from then on. Chief exec Simon Winch commented:

“Right across the world, people are recognising that each of us can truly make a difference to our health, to animals and to the environment, and we can do it easily – and tastily – three times a day.”

What a fantastic charity!

Moby

Musician and veteran animal-rights activist Moby has announced last month that all profits from his new album – Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt (released March 2nd) – will go towards animal rights charities! What a wonderful, wonderful human being he is!

Going nowhere…

Rowntree’s Jelly Tots

I originally shared that Jelly Tots were no longer vegan as they disappeared from the Nestlé vegetarian list.

UPDATE: Rowntree’s has tweeted to clarify that it’s just an issue of cross contamination. So, still vegan!
