Let’s review the top reason for leading a vegan lifestyle.
- Healthy alternatives to our favorite foods.
- Caring about animal cruelty and exploitation.
- Caring about the environment.
In a single word, SUSTAINABILITY.
That has been a big buzzword in marketing and event sphere for years.
Personally, animal welfare and environmental harm are two things very close to me, so that is likely to reflect in the perspectives I take when it comes to planning.
When it comes to vegan food most people are clueless when to start. They don’t even know where to start, but when it comes to event catering, the tiniest bit of assistance in the events blogosphere can help us move towards having more options for everyone. Sustainable meals are a great place to start when it comes to trying to have an eco-friendly event. Even some of the fancier meals if sourced correctly are often more eco-friendly and therefore, another idea for helping appeal to your attendees. I promote that everyone does their own research, but are a few links that may also help you have an idea of the conversation around plant-based diets being sustainable include. X/X/X/X
