November 1 was World Vegan Day and this year the celebration just got bigger! Here are the highlights from World Vegan Day 2017:

1. HoodLamb x PETA Collaboration

Animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) collaborated with Amsterdam-based HoodLamb by Hemp Tailors to bring the company’s hemp-based outerwear to the United States.

This collaboration aims to show that fashion can be 100% cruelty-free and in honour of World Vegan Day, HoodLamb will be donating a percentage of their sales to PETA until November 8 to help bring an end to animal torture in the fashion industry. PETA supporters can get an extra 5% discount by typing in “PETA” while purchasing their items.

You can participate in the collaboration’s cruelty-free fashion movement at #hoodlamb.

2. Twitter Celebration

Many people were engaging in World Vegan Day on Twitter. While some people have been vegan for a few weeks and other for five years, vegans pretty much summed up what being vegan is like in a few posts.

3. Canada Celebrates World Vegan Day

If you’re going to travel to the U.K. as a vegan, you need to spend a good few days in Edinburgh. They have many vegan restaurants all around the city and a few big events throughout the year. Edinburgh is arguably the second most vegan-friendly city in the U.K. after London.

For World Vegan Day, many restaurants around Edinburgh celebrated with special meals and deals. Joseph Pearce’s prepared a special plant-based three-course meal; The Herbivore Kitchen offered 2-for-1 pancakes all day; Harmonium Bar and Kitchen featured some of their favourite menu items for only £5; and Hendersons featured an all-vegan salad menu, in addition to a 2-for-1 deal.
