Vkind is a platform committed to growing The VegEconomy, a network of plant-based businesses and professionals uniting to co-create a plant-powered economy.
Our best chance to build a successful movement is with the help of a strong, supportive, and safe community. Our hope is that Vkind connects purpose-driven consumers with ethically-aligned businesses embracing The VegEconomy values of kindness, social responsibility and sustainable living.
Photos used for product and service reviews should have a clear photograph (if applicable) taken by the member submitting them with an accompanying caption at least 50 characters long. Additionally, the name of the dish/product should match what is displayed on the business’ menu/website.
While every product or dish reviewed by Vkind is vegan, reviews by fellow Vkind Community members may not list allergen information. Members are responsible for checking allergen information for themselves and Vkind will not be held liable for allergic reactions resulting from using a product endorsed by Vkind or Vkind Community members.
A post is a way for members to share themselves and add value to the Vkind Community. Members should strive to create a sense of belonging and inclusion for the community rather than attempt to tarnish it for others with negativity.
Please respect the privacy and safety of others. Bullying, harassment, hate speech, graphic and inappropriate content will not be tolerated. Refer to sections 3.1 and 3.2 for further details.
Only appropriate photos will be accepted. Anything vulgar, inappropriate, offensive or graphic is not allowed. “Graphic”imagery includes, but is not limited to, shocking or graphic content, acts of extreme violence, nudity or sexual content. Offending members will be removed and banned from the platform upon repeated occurrence.
Any post considered to be bullying in nature including harassment, adult content, slander, advocating against veganism or sustainability, hate speech, any form of violence or encouraging harm to animals, the environment and people will be reviewed and removed. False propaganda and misleading information is not allowed. Any post flagged as false will be reviewed and potentially removed if information is not fact-based.
Do not post illegal content or solicit or facilitate illegal or prohibited transactions. Violators are subject to immediate removal from our platform, being reported to authorities, and may face criminal prosecution.
Be accepting, supportive, respectful and above all, kind. Treat others the way you would like to be treated.
We want the Vkind Community to be a safe and supportive space where everyone on the plant-based spectrum, from vegan to veg-curious, can come together and endorse sustainable global change by doing business with VegEconomy enterprises.
There may be individuals who are still on their journey to living a plant-based or vegan lifestyle. Be accepting of where they are and encourage them to continue on their exploration. Vkind hopes to instill a sense of shared community and belonging. Posts or conversations with qualities of blaming/shaming will be promptly removed.
