Our Mission

Building the VegEconomy Together

Our Mission is to make veganism accessible by bringing together the best vegan products, businesses, and services from every niche to one easy-to-navigate platform.

The days of wasting hours researching and studying menus to find vegan businesses in your area are long gone. We've made it easy for everyone searching for sustainable, vegan products from restaurants to doctors, jewelry makers to leather makers, trust us, we got you covered.

It all started with a dream to make life easier..

Star Simmons, lifelong entrepreneur, buzzing networker, and Vkind founder, created Vkind out of her vision for the VegEconomy: an economic ecosystem of compassionate innovation where animal cruelty is left out of the supply chain. With the help of her friends and co-founders––compassionate master marketers Michon Javelosa and David Staricha––Vkind was born.

What is the VegEconomy?

So, why the Rabbit?


Everyone deserves a spirit animal, and Vkind is no exception! For us, the rabbit represents perception and awareness. By staying aligned with the rabbit, we stay in tune with the world and its collective evolution, encouraging us to live each day in a conscious mindset.

Besides, what vegan doesn’t love a good carrot?
