ALL ABOUT VEGAN SOCIAL EVENTS
Vegan Social Events are the FIRST in Toronto to focus on promoting both veganism and sustainability - because the two go hand in hand! Our events are 100% vegan and low-waste. They bring together influencers, media makers, and the community for delicious vegan eats & drinks, sustainable shopping, and guest speaking engagements. Vegan Social Events always attract conscious consumers and socially responsible businesses. Our events focus on promoting the vegan lifestyle in a friendly and inclusive manner, and inspire guests to live sustainably.
TORONTO’S MOST SUSTAINABLE EVENTS
As the first series of events in Toronto to focus on promoting both veganism and sustainability, we work closely with all of our vendors to make sure that there is minimal waste at our events.
Our goal is to inspire our community to make sustainable choices for a smaller footprint. A major factor that is often left out of conversations surrounding sustainability is the impact that animal agriculture has on the environment. Animal agriculture plays a significant role as a contributing cause of serious environmental issues including pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, species extinction, ocean dead zones, and rainforest destruction.
As consumers, we can take the power into our own hands by voting with our dollar every time that we make a purchase.
On average, a vegan diet saves:
4,200 liters of water per day
45 lbs of grains per day
20 lbs of CO2 equivalent per day
2.8 meters squared of forested land per day (source)
Vegan Social Events are 100% vegan and we work closely with our vendors help to make our events low-waste. We request that vendors consider the environment when preparing for our events by limiting the number of boxes, plastic, and other waste that may be produced from their booths. We also encourage our guests to bring their own reusable containers, cutlery, straws, bottles, and shopping bags. Every little bit counts!
Fauxmagerie Zengarry and Culcherd will both be offering their products without packaging/plastic-free, so don’t forget to bring your reusable containers to fill will dairy-free cheeses, and dairy-alternatives!
The Toronto Vegan Social Pop-Up will be bullfrogpowered with 100% green electricity. This means that Bullfrog Power’s generators put 100% green power into the grid to match the amount of conventional electricity the event uses, displacing energy from polluting sources. Across Canada, Bullfrog’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities.
For more information on Bullfrog’s green energy, visit www.bullfrogpower.com.
