Vegilicious (a Cape Town-based group working to mainstream Veganism for our health, for that of the planet, and of course, for the animals) has challenged Capetonians to go meat and animal byproduct-free for the duration of April. It is such a cool initiative that we jumped on board from day one in support and continue to offer 10% off our vegan dishes until the end of this month.
“Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.”—Donald Watson, founder of The Vegan Society
Here’s why Vegilicious is so passionate about their cause:
In the context of a meat-crazy South African culture, we are hoping to gather the growing pockets of people who are wanting to live cruelty-free lives, and connect them. Veganism might be a small movement now, but it’s part of a world-wide network, and it’s growing.
