MISSION STATEMENT

There are animal welfare vegans and animal only-fight-against-other-vegans abolitionist vegans. V-EGANISM is neither. Just as there are positive things and negative things about conservatives and liberals, there are positive things and negative things about welfarists and abolitionists. V-EGANISM avoids all 4 "political parties", and remains as an independent in thoughts and actions, only choosing what is right and just for animals, humans, and the environment. V-EGANISM however does have a mission statement which is how the founder of veganism, Donald Watson, originally coined the word's definition. It was a perfect definition then and it still is a perfect definition now! So the following paragraph is V-EGANISM's official Mission Statement--and nothing more, nothing less, we are simply called, "Vegan Activists", with no additives:

"V-EGANISM educates people and helps people and animals regarding the political and social justice cause, Veganism, which is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practical--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, household products, entertainment, service or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment."

9 Vegan Grocery Store Locations Around the World (including online too)

One of the joys of a vegan grocery store is that you don’t have to be so diligent about looking for hidden animal ingredients. Non-dairy cheese, for example, sometimes contains the milk protein casein. Casein is a cheap way to make fake cheese melt, but companies like Daiya are creating vegan cheese that melts and tastes better. At a vegan grocery store, there’s no guesswork.
The list below has some brick and mortar locations and some shops that are online only: 
1. Viva La Vegan has two brick and mortar locations: one in Santa Monica and in Cucumonga, California. You can also shop Viva La Vegan online.
2. Veganz is a full on vegan grocery chain that started in Germany and is opening its first U.S. location in 2016.
3. Food Fight Grocery in Portland, Oregon, was one of the first vegan grocery stores in the U.S., and you can shop it in person or online.
4. Rabbit Food Grocery in Austin, TX is almost all online, but local customers can pick up their haul at local vegan businesses to waive any shipping fees.
5. Vegan Online is a virtual Australian vegan grocery store. They’ll ship Australia-wide, so no matter where on the continent you live, you can get vegan treats on your doorstep.
6. Vegan Perfection is another Australian vegan grocery store. If you live in Melbourne, check out their physical location.
7. Honest to Goodness is a UK-based vegan grocery store that will ship anywhere in the United Kingdom.
8. Vegan.co.uk, which also ships UK-wide.
9. Pangea’s Vegan Store in Rockville, MD has both a physical store and an online shop.
