I am definitely not talking about a creative block. Rather in contrary. I got some “material” that encouraged me both to creation and action but I actually do not like this kind of source of inspiration.
I eat vegan food. Yes I am also one of those who have seen Cowspiracy and made some changes in their diet. By doing so, I did feel like I have become part of a community that through everyday actions and choices demonstrates that they mean it seriously with this planet. I love to follow various vegan communities especially the way they can joke about themselves and their veggies.

I love and I am incredibly thankful to all the entrepreanual minds who are coming up with new and new vegan products and restaurants.
The primary reason to be a vegan is usually not health. It is a wonderful side effect but the majority chooses to skip animal products due to the impact the animal agriculture has on our society and mainly on our PLANET.
For that reason, I am making an assumption, that those who choose to eat vegan food actually ARE interested in a sustainable life. That is why I was very concerned when I started seeing alcohol products in an Instagram feed of a vegan restaurant. I get it. It is a restaurant. They want customers and they want profit so they choose to serve alcohol products but why to promote it is enthusiastically?

Alcohol production is devastating for this planet. The water footprint of beer is 298 litre of water per litre of beer. This means that one glass of beer (250 ml) costs 74 litre. The water footprint of a wine is 870 litre of water per litre of wine. This means that one glass of wine (125 ml) costs 110 litre. What is interesting to mention is that there are several places where alcohol is produced and at the same time people hardly have (or do not have at all) access to drinking water. Just look at California, Nile river or the activities of Diageo (the largest liquor producer in the world) activities in Kenya. That is why I was very concerned when I saw posts promoting alcoholic bevarages by Vegan Urban Kitchen to celebrate….and now wait for it…. Earth Da
