Vegan curd, cheese and butter — if you thought such products were out of reach for Chennaiites, the Conscious Market that is set to take place in the city is sure to change your perspective.
“I started Earth Story in the city so I could let people know that there are many vegan options available around us. When one decides to go vegan, he or she often wonders where they’re going to source the products that are vegan. While our last edition of the Conscious Market in January had 38 brands, we will be having a total of 55 brands this time. The idea is to bring all the vegan businesses together and spread awareness to people on the impact that vegan lifestyle can have on the planet,” Dhaval tells us. The event will have brands offering vegan tofu, vegan cheese, nut-based butters, vegan skin and haircare products, menstrual pads out of banana fibres, clothing out of natural fibres and much more.
The Conscious Market will be held on November 9 and 10 at Express Avenue from 11 am to 9 pm.
