Veganism's On TV …What's The Problem?
The team behind BRIGHT Zine are opening an exclusive members’ club featuring a co-working and events space in east London in June 2019.
The club will be housed in the same location as our new venture The BRIGHT Store - a vegan coffee shop and ethical lifestyle store in Hoxton.
Join Us For The Film Premiere of 'A Prayer For Compassion'
With Veganuary breaking records this year with over 250,000 sign ups, it was no surprise to see vegan topics being discussed on almost a daily basis on morning TV throughout January.
While it’s great to see veganism being discussed on mainstream television with hundreds of thousands of viewers, reviewing more than a few segments on the topic quickly shows a repeated format to the discussion, repetitive lines of questioning and attempts to frame vegans in a negative light.
10 Vegan-Friendly Mother’s Day Gifts
BRIGHT in association with Plant Based News are very excited to present the London premiere of "A Prayer For Compassion" a brand new documentary exploring veganism and spirituality.
You can be one of the first people in the UK to see the film at our London Premiere in May 2019.
LUSH Goes Naked
Mums work hard, they are the glue of their families and raise the next generation.
To celebrate all mother figures this Mother’s Day, we’ve put together a selection of vegan-friendly gifts to remind them just how special they are, with the peace of mind that their treat is cruelty-free.
A Chinese New Year Feast with PhungKay Vegan
Late last year we flew out to Berlin for the LUSH Prize, which you can read all about it in Issue Seven, but what you didn’t know is that we also visited their brand new naked store. That’s right, it’s packaging-free.
They have really useful facts dotted around the store that highlight the specific reasons why their store is packaging-free.
The Power Of Getting Angry
We got to see in the Lunar New Year in true Vegan Queen style this week with PhungKay, London-based vegan Chinese food pioneers.
Phungkay, run by Jade Rathore and Angie Li took up residence at East London’s Benk + Bo, a gorgeous events space, workspace and yoga studio, for a weekend of celebration through food.
It sometimes feels like we’re living in a world of positivity, and declarations of #postivevibes only.
Sure, nobody really likes to spend too much time with a Negative Nancy or a Debbie Downer (side note: why are all these names female?) but humans are capable of a wide and varied range of emotions. We are complex creatures who react to the world around us with emotions, thoughts and intelligence, to deny any ‘negative’ emotions is to deny a large portion of what makes us who we are.
