Green Clean Cruelty Free

Welcome to the Vegan Organic Network (VON) Newsletter!


‘Veganic’ is a combination of two words ‘vegan’ and ‘organic’. It’s a guarantee that food is grown in an organic way with only plant based fertilizers, encouraging functional biodiversity so pesticides are not necessary. No chemicals, no GMO and no animal by products in any part of the chain.
Veganic food is resilient to the largest problems facing humanity i.e. environmental destruction, pollution of the sea and air and soil erosion.
Veganic otherwise we are dependent on animal agriculture, chemicals, pesticides and herbicides.
In essence, veganic is a logical step beyond organic for those who seek safe food grown in a sustainable manner.

Veganic Food Sale Manchester 10th July 2019
 

The word ‘superfood’ gets bandied about a lot. Well, after eating totally veganic food for a week and knowing that all the produce was grown 100% cruelty free, I felt great!
We had peaches, apricots and oranges grown by Biocyclic veganic farms in Greece. Shumei agriculture provided chocolate from their farms in Madagascar, and pasta, olive oil and vinegar from Italy, which are available online. Spinach, chard, salad leaves, kale, cucumbers, beetroot, shallots, fresh garlic, and onions came from Growing with Grace in Clapham, Yorkshire. Jane Graham made a delicious veganic pasta salad using a combination of the ingredients with herbs from her garden.

Humanity must save insects, if not for their sake, then for ourselves, a leading entomologist has warned.

“Insects are the glue in nature and there is no doubt that both the [numbers] and diversity of insects are declining,” said Prof Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson, at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. “At some stage the whole fabric unravels and then we will really see the consequences.”

Revealed: UK government failing to tackle rise of serious air pollutant

One of the most potent air pollutants is on the rise in the UK, but the government has no comprehensive monitoring, little enforcement, and almost no funding or clear plan to reduce the emissions, an investigation has found.

Evidence obtained by a joint investigation by the Guardian, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and Channel 4 News suggests that at least 3,000 deaths each year could be avoided if agricultural ammonia emissions were halved.

What if we could all support and help build a totally sustainable farming system—one that puts energy back into the earth, leaves animals out of the equation altogether, and draws on existing harvests for fertilizer?
