I Can’t Believe It’s Not Honey

CONSIDER THIS

For many people who weren’t raised vegan, honey was a staple in their lives growing up. From smearing it on toast to using it as a sweetener, it can be hard to give it up for some. Luckily there are many amazing companies producing vegan honey. One such company is aptly named the Vegan Honey Company. They make a variety of flavours including Peppermint, Chai and Vanilla. How lucky are we that we can still experience the joy of sweet sticky honey without harming our amazing bees who are such vital members of our ecosystem. 

CURIOUS FACT

Fruit Salad by Name, Fruit Salad by Nature

ABSORB THIS
Did you go plant obsessed in 2020 like the rest of the world? Or maybe you’ve had a green thumb for a while. Basically the whole IVWT team are plant lovers. I guess it goes hand in hand with being vegan. We know that flowers aren’t just easy on the eyes, they are great for the bees. The more diverse our gardens, the better for the environment. Indoor plants also help purify your air.
One of the most beloved houseplants, because of both their beauty and easy care, is the Monstera Deliciosa, sometimes known as the Fruit Salad Plant. This plant thrives both indoors and out and can handle fairly low light conditions. The best part – you can eat the flowers! Check out this video to learn how and when to eat them.
