Joining Forces with The Vegan Society to Democratize Sustainable Living
Updated: Nov 14
We're thrilled to announce a new partnership with The Vegan Society, the oldest vegan organization in the world. Founded in 1944 in the UK as a registered charity, The Vegan Society coined the term "vegan" and has been providing resources to educate and support vegan living for over 75 years.
One of The Vegan Society's major initiatives is the Vegan Trademark, which certifies vegan products around the world. The trademark appears on over 65,000 items to help consumers easily identify cruelty-free goods. We're honored to join forces with this trailblazing organization to make ethical shopping even more accessible.
Veganism is not just a lifestyle choice - it has massive potential for environmental good. Animal agriculture accounts for nearly 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Meat accounts for nearly 60% of all greenhouse gases from food production; and beef production alone generates 60kg of CO2 equivalents per kg of meat, mostly from methane released by cattle.
Research shows that transitioning to plant-based diets has the potential to considerably reduce diet-related land use, diet-related greenhouse gas emissions, eutrophication, and green and blue water use, whilst garnering substantial health co-benefits. Even small diet changes add up when adopted widely.
At Ganddee, we believe individual choices matter. We believe in individual empowerment, as opposed to lecturing people to tell them how to live their lives. This is what drives us to design Ganddee as an easy-to-use app that makes it easy and fun to find local shops selling sustainable goods, including vegan clothing, cosmetics and food. Our mission is to empower you with the data to make better consumption decisions, daily.
We're absolutely thrilled to collaborate with pioneers like The Vegan Society who demonstrate the power of small actions to drive change. When people unite around shared values, our collective impact grows! Find businesses selling Vegan Trademarked products on Ganddee and join the growing community of Ganddizens shaping a better world, one purchase at a time!
