elephant + vine opened their doors in the spring of 2022 with the purpose of making delicious food that has a positive impact on our world. Food made from animals is hard on our planet -- it requires enormous amounts of water, carbon dioxide, pollutants and land due to the amount of soy and other grains needed to feed the 25 million animals per day (yes, per day) that are used for food in the US alone!
Also, a plant-based diet at any age has super positive health benefits. Many ultra-athletes swear by a vegan diet for optimum athletic output, including champion weightlifters and runners.
And their #1 reason for doing what we do? We love animals. It's beautiful that our delicious and satisfying food doesn't require a single one.
