News & Updates!!

Well, it’s certainly been a very exciting week for Vegan Etsy! I have lots of news and updates to tell everyone about.

Several members will be doing a Meatout promotion in their shops, which will take place this Thursday, March 20. I will be putting up a post here the day before with all of the stores that are doing the promotion. The way this will work is that each member that is participating will decide what kind of promotion they are going to do. They might have a sale, give a larger percentage of their sales for that day to an animal charity or give all of their sales for that day to a charity. They will state at the top of their shop’s intro that they are doing a Meatout promotion and what their promotion is. I think it would also be helpful to provide a link or two about Meatout or something similar, like a link about factory farming. The main goal here is awareness. If you would like your shop to be included, please convo me and ask to be added to the list.

Another member, Michele of Cards and Jewelry by Michele, was featured on Cuteable a few days ago. Congratulations Michele!

Speaking of being featured, Vegan Etsy has been showing up in several places. Team members Susmitha of Art by Susmitha posted about us in her blog . We were also featured on Serious Eats, CreatiVegan and Preraphaelitepunk. Thank you to all for posting about us!!

I sent in all updates for the team page this week, so it should be updated in a week or two. All broken links to stores were included in my requests as well as all new members.

For those that haven't sent me their interviews, please do! This blog has a pretty large readership already and it will only increase, so having your interview posted here will certainly help your business. Plus, I love getting to know everyone a little bit more!

Go team!!

Whew! We are one, happening group, huh? ;)

I'm looking forward to offering any scarf in my shop for only $30 for I'll also have a scarf booth at our local Earth Day Festival, selling scarves passing out postcards about how meat messes up the planet.

Thanks again for a great post, Molly!
