I’ve been on a mission to only buy, as far as possible from vegan brands. Herbivore is a local vegan brand that makes a variety of vegan products, which includes a few products packaged in glass. This Hazelnut Cacao Spread is one of my favourites!
Why I try to buy from vegan brands only?
Since the beginning of the year I have been boycotting all non-vegan shops and restaurants, as far as possible, because I don’t agree with their ethics and environmental stance.
This was basically due to the fact that I felt bad buying a vegan product from a non-vegan brand that massively contributes to animal exploitation and climate change. I realised I no longer wanted my money to go to these companies, and instead wanted to use my money to support local vegan businesses who’s ethics and environmental stance aligned with my own.
Luckily here in Cape Town, there are so many vegan small businesses, so it’s been easier than expected. I have managed to buy atleast 80-90% of what I need from vegan shops, restaurants and small businesses. And I’m continuously looking for alternatives to the things I can’t find in vegan shops.
This way I support the very people who are on a mission to create a better world for the environment and the animals. And my financial support helps to them keep going. If we all supported more vegan businesses then fewer would have to close as often as they seem to.
Herbivore is a Cape Town based vegan business that make all their vegan products in a vegan factory. They sell a range of meats (protein alternatives), cereals, snacks, pantry items, and more. Have a look at their range of plant based meats here.
