Following August’s theft at Vegan Treats, our friends at the Herbivore Clothing Company were informed early this morning that their store had been broken into. (Oddly, all the large unisex tees in the store were stolen.)
Most expensively, their front door glass was smashed. To raise funds for repairs, Herbivore Clothing is offering a short sale. Support a great vegan business and get 10% off your entire purchase through tomorrow (plus free stickers!) when you use the coupon code “brokenglass.”
Best of luck, Herbivore Clothing!

Did you have a chance to swing by DC VegFest yesterday? It was a fun, event filled day with amazing speakers, sponsors and exhibitors, not to mention tons of delicious vegan food from local vendors. I walked away with three full bags stuffed with free swag, colorful t-shirts, informational pamphlets, giveaways, pins, stickers, a sneak peek of Isa Chandra Moskowitz‘s unreleased cookbook Vegan Pie in the Sky, a belly full of vegan treats, an adorable designer vegan jacket for the winter by Leanne at Vaute Couture, and of course, a to-go tub of vegan nacho cheeze from the Burrito Bandits.

Yup, liquor scented soap! It comes in all sorts of liquor scents, Spiced Rum, Gin and Tonic, Whisky Sour, and more…not into liquor? Not a problem they also have a line of beer scented soap , also Vegan, just for you! These soaps are not only Vegan but Organic and each bar of soap features an adventure suggestion from Chicago’s prohibition era printed on the wrapper. Prefer to wash off the smell of booze from some late night bar-hopping? They have a variety of other soaps including the No Taxation Without Representation soap, also Vegan and Organic.
