KFC has announced plans to test a faux version of its famous chicken with Irish and UK consumers later this year.
Irish MUA and animal rights activist, Alisha Davey of Flawless and Pawless, has planned a fundraiser to rescue dogs from the meat trade in China.
The fundraiser, which sold out within days, aims to raise awareness about the Yulin Dog Festival, where dog meat is eaten during the summer solstice. An estimated 10,000–15,000 dogs are consumed over the course of the festival, which takes place from 21st June – 30th June.
A new vegan restaurant and coffee shop called The Underdog has opened in Co. Limerick.
It’s located in the heart of the city on Thomas Street and it’s been pegged as “a plant-based space to sit, eat and heal”. Everything is made in-house in front of your eyes in The Underdog’s open-plan kitchen.
White Witch is an Irish company with a difference. Not only is it the first company in Ireland to go plastic-free with its packaging, it’s also vegan and BPA-free with a range of organic, ethical skincare.
Based in Connemara in Co. Galway, White Witch is very environmentally-conscious and believes that nature shouldn’t pay the price for human beauty. From start to finish, the process is handled by the White Witch team themselves. They speak to the growers, the suppliers and local people to acquire the best quality ingredients harvested in the most ethical way. All of their products are made using wild flowers, plants, oats and seaweed from the unspoiled coast and meadows in front of the Atlantic Ocean.
We spoke with founder, Ruth Ruane, about the company that means so much to her and what she sees for its future.
