Are you participating in Veganuary? Since 2014, the UK-based non-profit campaign has inspired people worldwide to eat vegan for January and throughout the rest of the year.
A UK tribunal has ruled in favor of an ethical vegan who sued his employer after being dismissed. Plaintiff Jordi Casamitjana was fired by animal welfare charity League Against Cruel Sports after discovering that the company was investing pension funds in firms involved with animal testing.

The judge ruled that ethical veganism is a “philosophical belief,” therefore protected in law, and that ethical vegans should be entitled to similar legal protections in British workplaces as those who hold religious beliefs.
