About Totally Vegan Buzz
Totally Vegan Buzz is a team of compassionate vegans who aim to inform and entertain the plant-based community. To do our bit to aid the growth of the vegan movement, we provide breaking news on animal rights issues, hold the meat and dairy industries to account, give a platform to activists and inform the wider world about environmentalism.
Though veganism is no joke, the plant-based community deserves some light relief every now and then. We have a fun side to keep you entertained – offering vegan humour, videos, quizzes, music, food, reviews and much more.
Totally Vegan Buzz welcomes vegans from our hometown of Brighton, UK, and throughout the world, to join our community and help boost veganism in any way you can.
Whether you’re interested in internships and work opportunities, or contributing opinion pieces, reviews, recipes, pictures and videos, we’d love to hear from you at [email protected].
Veganism We’re passionate about promoting a vegan lifestyle to the world and we believe in building a better future for animals and humans alike.
Community Totally Vegan Buzz is much more than a news source, it is a community for vegans and the vegan curious – we welcome anyone and everyone to join in the chat on our social media platforms and our Ask Vegans Anything forum.
Humanity Our business is founded on the principles of respect, kindness and compassion. We treat others as we wish to be treated.
Authenticity We value trustworthiness, searching for authenticity in all that we feature. You can guarantee that all of the news we provide has been reliably sourced, fact checked and verified to be genuinely accurate.
