This news doesn’t surprise us when we know just how tasty a plant-based lunch is, but we’re always thrilled to see some stats nonetheless. According to Totally Vegan Buzz ‘Squeaky Bean [...] found that 24% of people are eating less meat since the pandemic. The numbers in London were higher with 40% wanting to eat more vegan and 42% more vegetarian food.’

Verity Bowditch of Made in Chelsea fame has opened a plant-based kitchen in Camden, London this week. The spot focuses on all things vegan, sustainable and green. According to Plant-Based News, ‘The business grew from a small delivery-only kitchen in Brighton. Now, it will serve açai bowls, juices and smoothies in the morning, and poké bowls, paninis and signature burgers after 12pm to 42 sit-down covers inside the market. It joins a handful of delivery-only locations across the capital.’

Plant-based fans of Bournvile’s buttons have rightfully been furious this week as it was discovered that the chocolate company has added dairy milk to their giant dark buttons that were previously vegan. The Bournville bar still appears to be safe for now, but it’s a reminder that we can’t stop checking ingredients labels just yet.

We love to hear about new vegan makeup and news of our favourite throwback bands, and luckily for us, we can talk about both today.  According to Plant Based NEws ‘The 2000s rock band collaborated with HipDot to create the cosmetics line. Like the rest of HipDot’s products, the new My Chemical Romance range is cruelty-free and made with vegan ingredients.’
