Over the past couple of years, London has become a hotbed for new vegan restaurants, cafes and food stalls. We now have a vegan kebab shop, vegan bakeries and long-time favourites such as Cookies and Scream.
They started as an organic produce delivery company but now Globally Local have opened their second set of doors, a vegan fast food restaurant. Based in Ontario, Canada, it is the world’s first 24-hour vegan drive-thru.
The business did not start out as vegan, but James McInnes and his wife, Lia McInnes gradually turned their store into a vegan haven.
Everyone knows going vegan will save animal lives, but it can also save the lives of humans too. We’re in the middle of a health epidemic, with the population being fatter and sicker than ever before.

France is set to ban the sale of any car that uses petrol or diesel fuel by 2040, in what the ecology minister called a “revolution”.

Vegan superstar and directing legend James Cameron is releasing a new environmental film. Titled, ‘What would the ocean say?’, it will be voiced by Zoe Saldana and will outline the issues faced by our world’s oceans.
It takes a look at global warming, plastic pollution, overfishing, ocean acidification and more. It’s fantastic to see that a film will finally be looking at overfishing, and not turning a blind eye to the environmental destruction that it causes. There is more to how our oceans are being ruined than just pollution, and there’s no one better than James Cameron to highlight this.
Pamela Anderson has been a long-time animal rights activist. She’s been doing it right, too, having been vegan for a number of years.
