Viva! vegan Christmas

Welcome to Viva!'s Vegan Christmas Pages

Being veggie - or even better vegan - has never been more important - or easy to do! Eating meat-free this festive season is the kindest and most compassionate thing you can do for the animals, your health and the environment. Let our Christmas pages inspire you to try something different this year!
