We're starting the year off by celebrating Veganuary!
Presented by Vancouver Vegan Resource Centre and Little Mountain Shop, the Vegan Pop-Up is back—Veganuary Edition!
The Vegan Pop-Up is a collaboration between the VVRC and Little Mountain Shop, which showcases local products and lifestyle brands. From apothecary and apparel, to home goods and delicious treats, the Vegan Pop-Up aims to showcase and support vegan brands, and reiterate the abundance of cruelty-free, plant-based, animal byproduct-free options.
What is Veganuary? It's when folks try going vegan during the month of January.
"For most, a love of animals is the catalyst. Some people want to feel better about themselves and the impact they make on the world. Others would like to set themselves a challenge, and many combine Veganuary with their ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ and see trying vegan as the healthiest start to the year."
The Vegan Pop-Up will be open from January 10-13, 11am-6pm + January 19-20, 12pm-5pm with special programming in the evenings and weekend.
