Vegan ACT's 30 Day Go Vegan Challenge

Hi <<First Name>>! 

WELCOME TO DAY TEN! 

1/3 of the way there now, stay plant strong! 

 
 
Kym's advice for day ten:
Which drinks are vegan? 
The majority of non-alcoholic drinks are vegan, however there are a few things to look out for and a bit of reading to do if you currently drink soft-drinks. On the contrary, alcoholic drinks, particularly beer and wine are still sadly OFTEN clarified using animal-derived substances, so again some reading to do. Don't let it worry you though, with a bit of time put in, you can add an extra layer of sophistication to your drinking, not only choosing wines for their vintage, colour, year, variety and plum and chocolatey aromas, but you can also share a drop with your friends and proudly announce that its cruelty-free, which can only add to the enjoyment of everyone, including the animals :-)

TODAYS ASSIGNMENT: 
If you own a smartphone, search 'Barnivore' and download this excellent app that will come in handy next time you need to check if a drink is vegan. Also go to the Barnivore.com  website and check if your favourite brands are vegan or not, and find some new brands if needed :-)
