VegFest is coming to the PEG!

September 5, 2017

Generation Green is so excited to be a Gold sponsor of Winnipeg’s very first VegFest!!! Vegfest is happening Sepetember 16th, 2017 at the University of Winnipeg. It’s free to attend!

We’ve always had a focus on offering vegetarian and vegan products. Did you know that animal agriculture is actually the top contributor to climate change? Animal agriculture produces more CO2 emissions than all transportation industries combined… worldwide! Another fun fact: the water it takes to produce 1 beef burger is equivalent to running a shower for 24 hours a day for 3 months!! Being vegan is a pretty straight forward way to reduce your impact on the planet significantly and easily!

At Generation Green, we care greatly about offering eco-friendly products. We want to help Winnipeggers find easy and convenient ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Using all natural products, in re-usable and/or refillable bottles is a great way to lower your impact on the planet. Not to mention, supporting local business reduces packaging, and transportation emissions. All great influences on your carbon footprint.

Winnipeg’s VegFest is not nearly the first of its kind. VegFest’s have been held worldwide in recent years to promote and educate about veganism! Luckily Winnipeggers will finally have to opportunity to participate! VegFest is a day full of vendors, activities, and speakers all in regards to helping animals, the planet, and going vegan!

On September 16thΒ there is an amazing line-up of renowned speakers, over 40 vendors (including 8 restaurants!), and events such as Winnipeg’s first hobby horse race (a regular competition held in Finland), and a sMACdown (a vegan mac n’ cheese competition :O). Yes, that means vegan cheese! From what I hear there is limited seating for taste testing so get on board quick!

Generation Green will be offering samples of some of our many vegan products! We can’t wait to show the people all the great alternatives to conventional, animal tested products. We don’t stock any products that have been tested on animals, and cruelty-free products are correlated to veganism. Not to mention how sustainable products are better for the environment, and the animals still in nature.

Savannah and Lily will be staffing our vendor table at VegFest all day September 16th, 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. so please come by and say hi! It isn’t an event just for vegans, but anyone who is interested in healthy, sustainable living!

P.s. Have you heard we have a vegetarian (~vegan) cafe in the works for 2018? Follow us on social media for details to come!
