This week’s vegan winners and losers – week beginning 9/04/2018
Milk Make 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.
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.”

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!
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!
