Evening friends!

  1. First up, a petition! Let’s show the supermarkets that we as the consumers do not want our produce smothered in plastic. Sign this petition and share it with your family and friends- let’s do this.
  2. A London cafe has ditched dairy after watching a 5 minute video on the dairy industry called ‘dairy is scary’. They put the above poster in their front to explain why. It’s so exciting to see companies taking action after educating themselves ­čÖé
  3. I have finally started using this search engine that I heard about a little while ago. They plant trees with the money raised from ads. I’ve only used it for one day and they are committed to planting 8 trees on my behalf- talk about an easy way to do something awesome for the planet! See this video for more on how it works…
  4. Looking for a zero waste alternative to hair gel? Well look no further! This amazingly easy recipe requires only flax seeds and boiling water. And that’s not even the best part- you can use the seeds again and again before composting them!
  5. If you’re based in the UK you will no doubt be familiar with many of these restaurant chains. Fun fact: they all have vegan options and some even have a whole menu. YIPPEE!

EXCITING NEWS! UK restaurant Zizzi has released a new spring menu which includes ┬ágluten-free and vegan options for lots of meals, including PIZZAAAAA! Now to (not so) subtly redirect all friend and family gatherings there…

More random vegan news, particularly of interest to those feeling the loss of bacon from their lives- it’s early days, and it might be hard to source, but there’s a seaweed 2x healthier than kale (my one true love)┬áthat apparently tastes like bacon when cooked. You’re welcome.

A day late for actual Easter Sunday, but everyone knows chocolate eating is still socially acceptable for many weeks to come, right? I was super excited to find this vegan, palm-oil free recipe for creme eggs!

With a lot of fruits I have to be honest, I pick them up and hope for the best. This article about how  to tell when 8 fruits are at their tastiest was massively helpful. Yay to not floundering in complete darkness anymore!

The image at the top of this post is 1 of 3 depicting the devastating effects of deforestation, forest fires and melting ice caps. Beautiful and sad, but great to see artists raising awareness.
