Vegans and vegetarians in the Pikes Peak region now have a directory of like-minded businesses. KRCC's Martha Perez-Sanz reports.
The directory comes from the Colorado Springs Vegan and Vegetarian Group, which recently sprouted to over 600 members. Lead organizer JL Fields says members became curious about how they could take their vegan or vegetarian lifestyles beyond personal eating choices.
"Really, the idea is for people to know that in their very own community in Colorado Springs that there are businesses that they can go to that both serve them as a vegan or vegetarian or that they’re supporting a fellow vegan or vegetarian when they frequent their business."
The directory suggests hair salons, pet services, realtors, and artists. It’s available online for free and welcomes submissions from the public.
