Want to know if VegFest Oahu 2017 made a difference on the attitudes and behaviors of the attendees? So did we! We asked you to fill out a post-event survey and are having a dance party over the results. We are particularly proud of these stats: more than three-quarters of you (77%) said you were inspired to continue to research about vegan issues even after VegFest Oahu. And almost 80% of you said that you would shop differently after VegFest Oahu and are more than 50% likely to purchase vegan “meats” and “cheeses” at restaurants and grocery stores.

It will be demoed at VegFest 2018 by Madeline Kammerer, Community Outreach Assistant, Down to Earth Organic & Natural. See her bio here. [Read more…]
