Vegan Face Masks
“With everyone wearing a face mask to help protect each other from the spread of COVID-19, I thought, what better way to share a vegan message than to do so as we demonstrate kindness to our neighbors. I loved creating the graphics for these face masks. I hope people enjoy wearing them just as much.” – Sharon Nazarian
You can purchase a mask from Sharon aka Big City Vegan here and keep up with her on Instagram at @BigCityVegan

A shoutout to our sponsor, Complement. Developed by vegan dietitian Dr. Pamela Fergusson, and the NoMeat Athlete, Matt Frazier, Complement enables you to get your vitamin B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids (DHA & EPA) in an easy once-a-day spray. The good folks at Complement also have Complement Plus, a vegan vitamin capsule that includes all the nutrients in Complement spray, along with zinc, iodine, selenium, magnesium,and vitamin K2. Essential for blood clotting, healthy bones, and heart health, the only plant-food source of vitamin K2 is natto, an obscure, fermented soy food and one that is definitely an acquired taste (and smell).
