5 online UK vegan shops you should support
I understand that I rattle on endlessly about the importance of supporting independent vegan businesses, but like anything worth saying it is worth saying until you can’t say it any longer.
With that unstoppable determination in mind, I want to share my list of the top 5 online UK vegan shops that you could be supporting right now.
It includes a mix of groceries, cheese, clothing, wine, footwear, and baked treats.
Shopping online with these businesses keeps money in the pockets of vegan and independently-owned operations, allowing them to offer work to other vegans.
These businesses support other independent traders. Your money spent with these people keeps money in local UK communities, more so than if you shop with huge chain stores.
Are you ready for my list?
