    unfortunately 27th November is the day the Viva veggie roadshow is coming to Brighton, and although there is going to be lots of free stuff i may well find some things i need to buy there...

    however i am trying to make a difference by mostly buying just the things i need every day, so even if i don't manage it on the actual BND the idea is always with me

    I reckon I am far less wasteful as a Vegan - partly cos I try to support vegan outlets, so often pay more for things, plus the hassle of ordering, postage, etc, so I value everything I buy much more.

    that's a very good point PFC - as fairly traded, vegan, environmentally-friendly products are unfortunately more expensive, i don't have the money for frivolous things anyway!

    I will be in a field shouting the odds with pillocks on horse back with no shops for miles, I bought all my bread, sarni filling and bananas for my sabbing energy food on the way into work today....so no excuses....

    Gorilla I would not worry, it's not as though you are buying from some slave labour, exploited source at the viva fayre do not worry
    Go confidently in the direction of your dreams
