August 17: Vegan Highlights


Slaughterhouse CCTV Made Compulsory

All slaughterhouses in England will be fitted with compulsory CCTV under plans unveiled on 11 August by environment secretary Michael Gove, as part of a series of measures to bolster welfare standards and enforce laws against animal cruelty. Ideally, we’d like slaughter houses to be a thing of the past but being able to track what goes on inside them is a huge step forward.

Livin’ on the Veg

KERB markets are well-known in London for bringing together the best street food, so it was a great surprise to see them hold a Vegan Street Food battle.

Ne-Yo Films His First Vegan Shop

After watching Netflix’s What the Health Ne-Yo declared that he was going vegan all over his social media and shared his first vegan grocery shop. This is great for vegans as Ne-Yo has over 17.5 million likes on facebook. Personally, I most love his realisation that not all vegan foods healthy (we’ve all been there!) – watch that here.
