According to VegNews During New York Fashion Week (NYFW) last week, one trend that was repeatedly spotted was Nanushka’s vegan leather puffer jacket. The hip-length padded coat is becoming a favorite amongst fashion editors who say it is becoming the biggest street-style sensation this season. “Designer [and Nanushka founder] Sandra Sandor is a favorite among the influencer set, so it’s no surprise that her creations are seen regularly outside of the shows this week—and will likely be popular during the rest of fashion month, too,” media outlet Fashionista said. The jacket, made from polyester and polyurethane, was presented as part of Nanushka’s Fall 2019 collection during NYFW. The Budapest-based brand also offers a number of other vegan leather pieces and is stocked in over 30 countries internationally through online stores, specialty shops, and department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Selfridges, and Liberty and Browns.
Livekindly revealed that UK-based bakery chain Greggs will launch its vegan sausage rolls in more than 1,800 stores due to overwhelming demand. “The world has been consumed by the vegan sausage roll. It’s gone viral, which is great,” Roger Whiteside, chief executive at Greggs, told Chronicle […]

According to Livekindly Traffic lights in Brussels are doing more than just controlling the flow of cars in the EU capital city.
Similar to the popular “eating animals” stickers that have been appearing on U.S. stop signs for decades, at least two dozen lights in the city have been retooled — the red stop lights now flash “stop meat” and the green go lights urge drivers and pedestrians to “go vegan.”
The updated lights appear to be the work of activists. The city has become one of Europe’s epicenters for climate activism in recent weeks. Students across Europe have begun skipping school on Fridays.
Activists In Action
The movement was spurred on by then 15-year-old Swede Greta Thunberg. “In August last year, she refused to go to school every day until the Swedish elections, asking politicians to take action against climate change,” the Independent notes. “Since then, she’s protested outside the Riksdag parliament house every Friday, sparking the #FridaysForFuture movement, and now she is joined by hundreds of other students every week.”
Earlier this month Brussels saw tens of thousands gathering in the streets. The protest was linked to the resignation of one of Brussels’ environment ministers who took the protests as a personal call to leave office. The marches started after the country passed on carbon-reducing steps in December.
“Some of the most dramatic protests have come in Belgium,” BuzzFeed News reports.
The protests are being spurred on by another teen, 17-year-old Anuna De Wever. Inspired by Thunberg, De Wever and a friend — both not yet old enough to vote — shared a video online that went viral encouraging people to join them in the march. Thousands showed up. And the number of attendees has been growing every week.
“Our generation will no longer accept catastrophic changes that are negatively affecting our future,” British teen activist Lottie Tellyn penned in an op-ed for the Independent yesterday as the UK prepares for another day of marches tomorrow. “Years of limited action against climate change, years of covered-up information on the climate crisis, and now we are finally saying enough is enough.”
Meat and Climate Change
Diet has been inextricably linked to climate change. Livestock production is the single biggest greenhouse gas emitter – more than the transportation sectors. Some estimates put livestock production at a stunning 51 percent of all emissions.
“Huge reductions in meat-eating are essential to avoid dangerous climate change. In western countries, beef consumption needs to fall by 90% and be replaced by five times more beans and pulses,” the Guardian noted about a study published in the journal Nature last October.
“Food production already causes great damage to the environment, via greenhouse gases from livestock, deforestation and water shortages from farming, and vast ocean dead zones from agricultural pollution,” the Guardian reports.
