World Vegan Day
Monday, November 1, is World Vegan Day. If you’re at a loss for what to do to commemorate it, here are a few suggestions. No. 1: Watch a 10-minute hidden-camera investigation on Willet Dairy of Cayuga County, N.Y., at www.mercyforanimals.org/dairy to understand how exploitative the dairy industry can be—for cows and humans. No. 2: Check out Never Felt Better Vegan Shop (2315 1/2 K Street). Recently opened, the shop carries handmade crafted goods, including adorable wallets; T-shirts; glassware; books; and foodstuffs. Then, go downstairs and buy an animal-ingredientless cupcake from Sugar Plum Vegan on your way out. Happy V-Day, you little beasts!
