Game Of Thrones star, Jerome Flynn, best known for his portrayal of Bronn, has joined VeganNation’s advisory board.

VeganNation describes itself as an ‘all-encompassing platform that unites people, businesses, and organizations in order to support every aspect of vegan life’.

Members can find, share and buy vegan products via its marketplace, social forum, meal-sharing service, and vegan-tech incubator.

Vegan currency

The company has also established the ‘first vegan economy’ with its own traceable digital currency dubbed VeganCoin, which aims to ‘supports vegans around the world through cruelty-free trade and champions sustainable consumption’.

“Vegan Nation is the basis of an international vegan economy that makes vegan lives simpler, more economical, and better for the Earth and the soul of each of us,” Jerome Flynn said. “VeganCoin will allow many more to become vegans and thereby contribute to the reduction of our ecological footprint.”

‘Committed to a vision’

Isaac Thomas, CEO, and Co-Founder of VeganNation said: “With over 300 million vegans around the world, it’s surprising that such an enormous population still lacks access to a single ecosystem that assists vegans in living and enjoying a truly plant-based and environmentally conscious lifestyle.

“This is why it is so important to get the support from vegan celebrities that are trusted by the vegan community, like Jerome Flynn, who are committed to a vision of society they wish to live in and give to future generations to come.”
