And guess who’s a Corporate Partner with Triodos Bank?

That’s right. The Vegan Society.

Please understand: I am not saying that The Vegan Society should not accept a donation from Triodos–or anyone else. No money is clean. My point is that The Vegan Society ought not be “Corporate Partners” with Triodos and the idea that the The Vegan Society logo is attached to the bank is deeply disturbing.


If you are not vegan, please go vegan. Veganism is about nonviolence. First and foremost, it’s about nonviolence to other sentient beings. But it’s also about nonviolence to the earth and nonviolence to yourself.

The World is Vegan! If you want it.
