The Vegan Island Community Project

We received a tip from Anthony C. that we found very interesting. Some of you TreeHugger’s might already be a part of a vegan community, but this whole concept was new as we looked through the Vegan Island Community Project’s website. It’s actually quite simple: A consortium of vegans, raw-foodists and other ethical individuals and groups have gotten together and intend to purchase an entire island on which to settle. A location hasn’t been determined yet, but according to the timeline it looks like they hope to be making the purchase by 2008. Certain standards must be met to join this community but as far as rules, there really aren’t many. It definitely takes a certain person to be apart of this kind of community. While the life is certainly less stressful, we admit that there are many things that would be missed. ::The Vegan Island Community Project
