Wow, what a trip! If anyone had told me a year ago that I'd be running a business and holding down a full-time job, I would have scoffed. Yet, here I am. I didn't realise how much work it would be. There has been a lot to do in the last couple of months, and there is still quite a bit to come, but everything is working as it should.
It's an exciting time to be vegan - also a sad one. For every great step forward there seem to be two backwards, but the world still holds wonder and beauty and I have hope that things will continue to improve for the animals and the world.
The Vegan Card arose out of a desire to help more vegan businesses achieve success, and to connect them with their potential customers, and of course it's not just aimed at vegans. All the products and services involved hold equally as much appeal for non-vegans. Who doesn't love a discount on great food, fabulous products, and useful services?
I hope you'll enjoy the new Vegan Card as much as I have enjoyed bringing it to you. Keep your eye on the Facebook page and Directory to watch as more and more fabulous businesses join our community.
