veghuns was set up in 2015 by three vegan best friends. Initially started as a way to share new places to eat in Dublin, the veghuns now share information about food, activism, human rights, animal rights and living more sustainably.

Our Sustainability Partner for Dublin Vegfest 2019 is Zerowaste.ie who will helps us make Vegfest as sustainable and zero waste as possible. We have two ambitious targets. Firstly, we are aiming to eliminate single use plastic usage. This will be achieved by ensuring all packaging across all our Food Village vendors in 2019 is compostable. This feeds into our second goal of diverting more than 90% of waste generated at the event from landfill. Learn more here.

Dublin Cycling Campaign and bicycle valet parking.
We’ve partnered with Dublin Cycling Campaign to provide free all day bicycle valet parking each day of the weekend. So you don’t have to worry about finding a place to lock up your bike! The Dublin Cycling Campaign team will be on hand at the valet parking area at the entrance to meet you and take care of your bicycle while you enjoy the event.

We’re delighted to partner up again for this year’s event with a local animal sanctuary Back Into Daylight (BIDAS). They are a vegan run home to 400+ rescued farmed animals who get to live out there lives in peace with care. They rescue various animals such as wild animals, abused Animals , any animal in need of care such as caged hens to injured pets needing a new home. They also try to re-home animals into new and loving environments where possible.
