Bamboo Vegan – Fall 2013 Update

Hey all!

A lot of good stuff has happened lately in the Bamboo Vegan camp…

We recently turned 1 year old (woo-hoo!) :) We are proud to say that it feels like we are growing stronger every day! Your support: invaluable. We are so glad to have made so many friends, and to be able to supply the good people who come to our store with good vegan food! It’s all we aim for: to keep you happy and psyched about veganism!

We’ll keep trying to get better and better at what we do, and we have many great plans for this fall/winter. Just stay tuned and we’ll keep you informed!

Hugs,
BV Team

Φίλοι χορτοφάγοι!

Έχουμε πολλές καλές εξελίξεις εδώ στη Bamboo Vegan. Πρόσφατα κλέισαμε τον πρώτο χρόνο λειτουργίας μας, και με χαρά μπορούμε να πούμε ότι νιώθουμε ολοένα και πιο δυνατοί :) Κι αυτό, το χρωστάμε σε σας. Η στήριξη που μας δίνετε και οι φιλίες που αναπτύσσουμε είναι κάτι το υπέροχο. Μαζί πολεμάμε για έναν πιο φιλικό προς τη χορτοφαγία (και ενάντιο στην άδικη βία) κόσμο.

Σκοπεύουμε να γινόμαστε ολοένα καλύτεροι ως το μοναδικό vegan μίνι μάρκετ της χώρας μας, και να σας παρέχουμε όλα τα προϊόντα που ζητάτε. Το φετινό φθινόπωρο και ο χειμώνας που μας έρχεται θα φέρουν πολλές όμορφες εκπλήξεις από μέρους μας, οπότε μείνετε συντονισμένοι στη Bamboo Vegan για περισσόερες λεπτομέρειες!

Φιλικά,

2013 – A good time to start anew!

Hello again everyone! First of all let us wish to you all a “Happy 2013″, with lots of positivity and compassionate vegan attitudes.

In times like this it seems kind of hard to focus on the good, but we should always to rise above and be a positive influence… :) We should also remember that there are countles others who have it much worse, lacking the “luxury” of surviving or even decent standards of living. Non-human animals definitely belong to this category. So let’s employ all our efforts of compassion and understanding towards them, and the world around us!

OK… Let’s continue with some Bamboo Vegan related news!

Don’t forget we have a new Tumblr blog that you should check out! We make exclusive posts with inspirational stuff that we find along the way as well as pictures and funny stuff we find along in our everyday lives (cats and sweets being two main themes). Check it out: http://bamboovegan.tumblr.com/

You should also remember that we constantly keep adding new items that are totally essential to the vegan’s and vegetarian’s diets, and are kind of hard to find elsewhere in Athens or Greece. We make exclusive imports in some cases, in order to supply you with what you need. Some of our noteworthy products are:

- Vegan Cheeses (blocks of cheese, cheese slices, cheese that melts, cream cheese)

- Nutritional Yeast (rich in B vitamins)

- Vegan Candy Bars (Cleo’s, Mahalo, Zebra, Twilight, Jokerz & more)

- Egg Replacers (important for cooking)

- Gluten Free products (cookies, flours, breads & more)

- Seitan (mix to make at home and ready-to-eat seitan products like burgers,sausages, strips etc)

We will always keep adding new stuff to our catalogue and try for the best possible prices. We really want to cater to the people who take their precious time to come to our shop.

Alright then, that should be all for now… take good care of yourselves and see you soon!

All the best,

Elisavet & Fotis — the BV team
