    It’s World Vegan Month, so we’re encouraging our followers to give a plant-based diet a go – whether it’s for a week, a month, or forever. But if you’re thinking of going vegan, you might be worried that you won’t be able to enjoy some of your favourite treats any more. But you couldn’t be more wrong.

    Our friends at The Vegan Kind and Vegan Tuck Box are proving this with their subscription boxes. The boxes are full of vegan and cruelty-free treats, snacks and toiletries – and they’re delivered straight to your door. They recently sent us some boxes to try out – here’s what we thought.....

    The Vegan Kind

    The Lifestyle Box (£10 + P&P) is great because it combines sweet and savoury vegan snacks with a cruelty-free skincare product.

    Our top products were the Sea Salted Covered Fudgee Bites and the Hummus Chips, but we also loved the human+kind hand cream because it smells good enough to eat! A few other stand out products in this box were the whipped ‘cream’ and garlic mayonnaise – they were both huge hits in the office!

    All of The Vegan Kind boxes come with a hand out telling you a bit more about the products, and offering some great discounts.

    Switch your home energy supply to Ecotricity and receive a £40 voucher to spend at the Vegan Kind supermarket with this link!

    Vegan Tuck Box

    We also tried out some subscription boxes from Vegan Tuck Box.

    The Ultimate Box (£18.50 +P&P) contains around 10 sweet and savoury snacks. Our favourites were the Seaweed Broad Bean Chips and the Almond Chocolate Bar.

    Vegan Tuck Box also sell one-off boxes, perfect for a present or if you fancy treating yourself. They have gluten-free and chocoholic boxes, and even a letter-box sized box!

    We also love that both The Vegan Kind and Vegan Tuck Box donate 10p to charity with each box.

    So whether you’re thinking about switching to a plant-based diet, or if you’ve been vegan for years, these subscription boxes are a great way to discover some delicious new snacks and treats.

    Climate Clock

    The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
    The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
    "The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
    Ecotricity is a sponsor of the Glasgow Climate Clock that will run every night until COP26.
