Monthly ethical, eco, vegan market.
We are an ethical, vegan market that is also human-friendly and planet-friendly, with the aim of having the lowest negative impact possible and of demonstrating how humans are inextricably part of nature, not separate to it.
Our aim is to create a space where vegans and non-vegans can come together with a mini-festival atmosphere; so it’s about sharing and learning not just shopping!
Only 100% vegan businesses, vegan owners and stallholders.
No single-use plastic, plastic carrier bags, plastic straws, plastic bottles and other plastic packaging (including bio-plastics which still contain a % of petroleum-derived plastic). Also, no cellophane please (due to the toxicity involved in its production).
Only organic palm oil.
Only fairly-traded ingredients/raw materials (where appropriate – i.e. that applies to all products which are sourced from economically-exploited (so-called ‘developing’) countries, including sugar, tea, coffee, coconut, cacao, tropical fruit, nuts, cotton etc).
No ‘accidentally vegan’ products i.e. those which have the labelling ‘may contain traces of milk, eggs etc’ as this means that they will most certainly contain non-vegan ingredients and are made by companies which profit from the exploitation of animals.
No products from companies included on the Ethical Consumer Boycott list (http://www.ethicalconsumer.org/boycotts/boycottslist.aspx) – or from companies which otherwise exploit animals (including humans) or harm the Earth. For example, Nestle, Unilever, Coca Cola, PepsiCo, Kraft, Mars, Mondelez, any agrochemical or biotech company or any pharmaceutical company.
No diesel generators or gas cylinders. (We can supply a limited amount of electricity from our electric van and local businesses. We are looking into sourcing local biogas.)
