But we can’t do this alone, which is why we put a call out across Canada to submit your plant-based ideas and, boy, did Canadians ever deliver! We received over 200 applications, each with piles and piles of straight-up inspiration. Those selected will receive volunteer support, product donations, and up to $25,000 to get their product, project, or idea off the ground.
Fam, it took a big team and the help of our partner, Erin Ireland (a plant-based advocate, vegan bakery owner, and one of our legit heroes), to go over each application with sincere appreciation to narrow it down. There were so many epic ideas, trying to decide who would participate in our Plant Project was near impossible, but we did it!
