What The Health Is Happening: Is Vegan The New Black?

Seriously, after watching What The Health I needed to take a look at what the hell I ate and what impact all my choices have on the Earth. The documentary didn't surprise me though, it reminded me of why I quit my job to start my own company. It was essential that Queen & Berry make conscious efforts to improve how we treat the Earth and the beings who live on it. 

As a business, we could do this by not printing marketing materials like business cards and fliers. Providing livable wages and having a sensitivity to our employees' work/life balance needs. Also, fiercely supporting as many anti-animal/human cruelty and environmental projects as possible.

Being a Vegan is bigger than what you eat, it's your life and your style. What The Health re-energized our primary focus, outside of helping frustrated business owners, we target amazing lifestyle brands that are rooted in social and sustainable causes but are still for profit.
