America: Philadelphia veggie restaurant goes vegan

A diner in South Philly has delighted plant-based customers by cutting cow’s milk from its menu – thereby making the eatery 100 per cent vegan. The Tasty, which serves ‘vegan comfort food’ announced the change on its Facebook page, with a simple note saying: “We will no longer be serving dairy for coffee drinks as of today! Come try our selection of oat, almond, macadamia, coconut or soy milks.” Ben Pierce, a co-owner with Sofia Baltopoulos and Kate Hiltz, told a local news outlet that the removal – which was low key – had been implemented over a couple of weeks, as they had hit a critical mass of ‘regulars’ who were originally attached to dairy milk in their coffee, but had swapped it f or plant-based alternatives. He said: “Yeah, they all pretty much converted after a while.” The Tasty opened in May of last year, and the only non-vegan item served was cow’s milk. According to owners, their ‘baby steps’ strategy is to get ‘mainstream’ coffee drinkers through the door, then ‘excite, educate, and change gradually’.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to June’s issue of Vegan Life magazine. I’m really excited about this one – as you’ll have seen, we have a very special cover star this issue. Evanna Lynch is known for her acting (she’s currently treading the boards in London’s West End) and previously played the role of Luna in the Harry Potter franchise. I was lucky enough to meet Evanna herself at Vegan Life Live in January, and it was fantastic to talk to her about some of her upcoming projects as well as her views on veganism. The brilliant profile piece inside was written by another wonderful vegan I have been lucky enough to meet on a number of occasions (and who has been featured herself on these pages in the past), Deni Kirkova. The original images were taken by Toby Shaw – all at Hugletts Wood Farm Animal Sanctuary. It’s finally summer, which means we can take our dining from ‘al desk-o’ (groan) to al fresco. With this in mind, we have put together a recipe-packed feature to help you enjoy your best vegan barbeque season yet. What role does a plant-based diet play in conservation? We all know how much animal agriculture contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, but what other impacts does it have? Katie Chabriere - a trustee for the UK-based charity Neotropical Primate Conservation – talks about her experience of working on conservation as a vegan. Another really inspiring herbivore in this issue is Jo-Anne McArthur. This amazing photographer has documented hundreds of scenes showing the ways we exploit animals. Her work is incredible, and it was a privilege to chat with her about being an artist. And finally – Dixe Wills is probably one of the most interesting writers I have ever spoken to. As author of a number of popular titles including The Z-Z of Great Britain, Places to Hide in England, Scotland and Wales, New World Order, and The Armchair Naturalist, his latest offering Tiny Campsites has recently been published in its third edition. Have a great month.
