2013 Natural Products Expo East
We had a blast at Expo East! We spent 3 days checking out lots of great new vegan products and companies! We talked with a lot of companies that are interested in vegan certification for their products. Hopefully, we will be working with those companies soon!
We are working on a post and will be sharing the scoop on all the great products we tested, soon!
Vegan Product Reviews
North Coast Organics - Organic and Handmade Deodorant and Lip Balm - It’s hard to find an all natural deodorant that really works. We tried both Death by Lavender and Revolver. They have a wonderful scent and keep you smelling great all day long. The deodorants and lip balms are coconut based and apply very smoothly with just the right balance of oil. The handmade eco-friendly labels make these products even more special and we love to support a company that is dedicated to earth-friendly packaging. www.North-Coast-Organics.com
R.A.W. – Real and Wonderful – Macaroons and Granola Snacks. All of us at Vegan Action love coconut! R.A.W. has a vanilla coconut macaroon and a chocolate coconut macaroon that are addictive. We also really dig the granola “bars” both the superfood and chocolate cherry flavors. This isn’t just your standard granola but a sweet, hardy granola that is more of a treat than a snack. They have definitely raised the bar on vegan snacks and we hope to see them in markets around our town real soon.
We were recently sent a copy of “Betty Goes Vegan” and we can’t wait to get cooking! This massive cookbook contains some gorgeous food photography and a dessert section that will make you salivate. We are going to test some recipes out for you and will review them on Vegan.org soon.
Are Popular Magazines Veg Friendly?
November and December are among the most popular months for food magazines. People are gearing up for Thanksgiving and Holiday celebrations and look to magazines for ideas and inspiration. We thought it would be an interesting time to see how many common newsstand food-focused magazines include vegetarian and vegan recipes.
We reviewed nine popular magazines and only included the savory dishes.

My Life as a Turkey
A fascinating glimpse into the lives of animals who are often seen as little more than Thanksgiving centerpieces. The film follows Joe Hutto as he raises 16 turkeys, left on his porch as eggs, from hatchlings to adulthood.
Turkeys on factory farms will be killed when they are only 5 or 6 months old and, during their short lives, will be denied even the simplest pleasures, such as running, building nests, raising their young or even stepping outdoors. Turkeys raised for food will never know the comfort of their mother’s wings or experience the joy of exploring the woods and fields with her.
Each of us can help prevent the needless suffering of turkeys by leaving them, and all animals, off our plates! This holiday season, join the growing number of Americans that are choosing to celebrate by serving delicious vegan fare.
