One Planet Pizza

One Plant Pizza's mission is to create unbelievably tasty plant-based food that’s better for people and the planet. Pizza seemed like a good place to start.

What makes One Planet Pizza a Vegan company?

We are a vegan founded and run business that puts veganism at the heart of every decision we make as a company.

 

Our purpose is to get plant-based food into the hands (and mouths) of as many people as possible. We’re here to help everyone understand the impact food choices have on our planet, making it easier for us all to eat and live more sustainably.

 

Our vision is to be the number one vegan pizza brand in Europe, helping millions of people eat and live more sustainably without sacrificing their favourite food.

 

We work with other vegan businesses where possible, such as choosing the Vegan Society Vegan Trademark over other vegetarian trademarks. Wherever we can, we source our ingredients from other vegan brands like LA VIE or THIS, over brands that offer plant-based products as part of a wider non-vegan range. Where we can, we work with vegan charities and support other brands that are mission aligned. 

 

When we attend non-vegan events we encourage vegan food to be offered at the very least. We also support and help other vegan founders to teach them what we’ve learned on our own journey to be listed with major retailers.

Vegan Muscle Gym Wear

Mel & Steve want to show the world that Vegan Muscle Gym Wear is not just about the physical strength you can have being vegan but to show the world that vegans have strength of heart.

What makes Vegan Muscle a Vegan company?

Our whole business was born from animal rights and is focused on promoting being vegan. That’s why we have pro-vegan messages on our clothing, such as ‘The strong protect the weak’ and ‘compassion is strength’.

 

Our aim is to promote veganism in an environment like a gym that is typically conditioned to ‘bro science. Our clothes stir-up conversations and create change and our customers love being able to represent vegans as healthy, fit and strong – showing people that being vegan takes nothing away from us but makes a dramatic impact for the animals.

 

We make sure all our products and processes used are all 100% vegan. This means not only making sure our materials are vegan (such as the fibres used in our material blends, inks, labels, glues used in packaging etc) but also the process. For example silk screen printing is done using alternatives to silk, making sure aluminium plates are used instead. We also make sure all our packaging is printed with soy inks and the glues used are all 100% vegan. 

 

We use our social media platforms to promote veganism as well as our YouTube channel where we do animal rights activism. We also do public talking, where we continually disappoint people who attend our talks because they think we are going to talk about the health side of a vegan diet. Only to find out that we are there solely to try and achieve animal rights, to wake people up to going vegan and to encourage vegans that they need to be active in being part of the solution for the animals and how they could do activism and become an activist themselves.

BFriendly Music

Duo BFriendly bring their own brand of feelgood reggae music and anecdotal humour to events and venues around the UK.

What makes BFriendly Music a Vegan company?

With the difficulties in the world at the moment, if we can bring a little sunshine into peoples’ lives and help in someway to bring people together and make them more caring and compassionate about the planet we live on, then our mission is accomplished.

 

Our product is our music and includes songs with vegan messages. We make efforts to buy vegan musical instruments, for example we spent a considerable time sourcing a vegan violin and our drum is made of vegan fibreskyn.

 

Our main customers are vegan festivals to support the vegan cause, although we also branch out to like-minded events such as wellness festivals where we can include our vegan message in our repertoire. We have special rates for vegan festivals and perform at animal sanctuaries for free.

 

We consider ourselves part of the vegan family and support other businesses where possible. We sourced our banner from vegan printers, we write songs for vegan events and organisations and we even holiday with a vegan travel company!

 

We are also always keen to play at children’s events and sow the seeds of the vegan message in a fun way.

 

Our third BFriendly album is due out shortly, and the plan is to follow this up with a fourth album of vegan activist songs.

Air Safaris 269

Explore the future of safaris. Adventure travel and safaris in Southern Africa founded by a an ex-airline pilot with a passion for travel and a mission to put kindness back into the world of safaris.

What makes Air Safaris 269 a Vegan company?

As an ex-airline pilot, my passion is flying. But my mission is to help the planet survive and put kindness back into the world of safaris. The more vegans join us on safari the more we help people make the connection.

 

Veganism is still a foreign concept in many parts of Africa, so after traveling extensively as a vegan family, we knew that vegan travelers like us, wanting to come on safari, would be unsure of how to navigate the challenge.

 

Air Safaris 269 are a plant-based vegan adventure agent based in Cape Town and Namibia. Being vegan for 13 years, I understand the concerns travellers have coming on a safari. The added advantage is that I am a born and bred Namibian which can give you the confidence that you know someone with first-hand knowledge of the region. I am not only your pilot but also your safari guide and planner.

 

We coordinate all our safaris according to vegan values. Should a lodge not offer vegan options, we coordinate and assist to make it happen. We educate the establishments we visit and work with on our vegan ethics and standards, and provide guidance by contracting vegan hospitality agents to assist us.

 

The safari industry has a long way to go, but our presence as a vegan/plant-based operator is continuing to grow and create awareness for others to follow. We also contribute to vegan travel forums as well as online and in-person travel conferences, both vegan and non-vegan.

 

The future of safaris is vegan.

Kakadu Creative

Kakadu Creative are an ethical design agency, on a mission to help you make a positive impact in the world.

What makes Kakadu Creative a Vegan company?

As a service-led business, we do not work with any business that is involved in any form of animal agriculture or exploitation. As part of this we ask potential clients to confirm that they aren’t involved in any animal exploitation practices in our initial discovery calls and also look through their marketing materials and company literature to confirm. 

 

We also promote supporting services to our clients to promote vegan ethics and animal equality. For example, our default printing partners use vegan inks and glues throughout their services. When we meet clients, we make it clear that we are vegan and suggest vegan locations if available in the area. 

 

We strive to partner and work with vegan owned and operated businesses where possible. For example, our IT partner and digital marketing associates are all vegan. We believe that a big part of furthering the vegan cause is supporting other vegan businesses with our investment. We would rather invest our money into partners who we know have the same ethos as us and won’t be taking our investment in them and spending it on activities and products that harm innocent animals.

 

We often talk about vegan ethics and the impact veganism has on our planet, animals and health in our social media content. We have guested on podcasts talking about our vegan ethics and how they are a part of our business and we also talk about the fact that we won’t work with businesses that are involved in animal exploitation on our website. Alongside that, we donate 1% of our turnover to a range of charities, including those that are working to rescue and rehabilitate animals.

Wild Heart Bistro

Wild Heart Bistro blossomed out of a vision to provide delicious, satisfying, entirely plant-sourced foods that appeal to everyone, regardless of lifestyle.

What makes Wild Heart Bistro a Vegan company?

Every single ingredient and every food and drink product that I serve and make is entirely plant-sourced. Nothing derived in whole or in part from a sentient being. Everything is crafted with love, caring about the Earth, and respect for all those with whom we share our planet.

 

I have the only vegan bistro in a popular food court. I have salad dressings and mayonnaise made by a local vegan business, vegan black bean burgers made by a local chef, vegan cheesecake, Violife cheeses, vegan Tzatziki sauce and premium plant-based steak by a local vegan co. 

 

Wild Heart Bistro blossomed out of a vision to provide delicious, satisfying, entirely plant-sourced foods that appeal to everyone, regardless of lifestyle. Every customer is considered a celebrity and we want to see you smile. 

 

I provide free educational and inspirational literature about living vegan and also give away free smiles and great conversations, creating a welcoming atmosphere around going vegan, helping people to start wherever they’re at.

 

I have a poster everyone can see that says, “Cheat on Your Meat Diet, Try Vegan”. I engage in conversations, when possible, with customers who express interest in learning about plant-based/vegan meanings and how to transition. I even made my own brochure that addresses plant protein vs animal protein and the many reasons to go vegan – including health, environment, compassion, and wildlife and resource conservation.

Humane Wildlife Solutions

The award winning Humane Wildlife Solutions is a 100% humane, vegan, non-lethal and ethical alternative to pest control.

What makes Humane Wildlife Solutions a Vegan company?

Humane Wildlife Solutions offer our customers a service where we overcome wildlife conflict on properties, both domestic and commercial. We do this by repelling and deterring rather than the current methods offered by pest control services of trapping and killing. We believe we can all live side by side, humans and wildlife. If there is no conflict then we will help you overcome this by using humane methods only.

 

We are a fully vegan business and all our services revolve around working with wildlife conflict. We approach every job with our vegan ethics in mind and never harm any wildlife. This extends to every job we do so it covers all mammals, birds, and insects. No matter the species with never harm any of them.

 

When we need to buy business services, we have always reached out to other vegan businesses, for example our uniforms, our design and artwork. Any events we run always include 100% vegan food and we even choose vegan places to eat out when away on work trips – it helps that we have a lot of vegan business clients!

 

We proudly shout about being vegan, attending as many vegan festivals as we can every year across Scotland and telling the media in interviews that we are a vegan business. We recently had another article published about our work in the Vegan Society Magazine proudly telling people about our work and vegan credentials. Our best vegan activism comes from contact with our clients, talking to them about veganism and why we are a vegan business. This happens a lot as around 70% of our clients are not vegan!
