Best of Vegan Awards™ to Recognize Top Vegan Products, Organizations and Leaders

Unicorn Goods, the world’s largest vegan store, has just announced open voting for the 2017 Best of Vegan Awards™. Known as the ”Hornys™” (after the unicorn horn-shaped award), the annual awards will recognize the year’s best vegan products, organizations, and leaders across 41 categories, including Most Innovative Vegan Company and Best Vegan Product.

Winners will be announced on World Vegan Day, November 1st, the international holiday recognizing the rapidly growing vegan movement.

Unicorn Goods — the company that runs UnicornGoods.com, a website that lists the largest number of vegan products in the world, ranging from clothing and personal care to books and home goods — was established in 2014 to meet the growing demand for vegan products. The company is a Public Benefit Corporation with a mission to reduce animal suffering by selling and promoting animal-free products.

Vegans abstain from consuming animal products for ethical and health reasons, and for many, this includes avoiding animal materials in clothing and other products. The number of vegans in the United States has increased by 600% in recent years to now include an estimated 19 million people, according to a study published by market research group Global Data (source: Vegan Trade Journal).

“Now more than ever, we are seeing explosive demand for vegan products,” says Dave Pittman, Chief Creative Officer and co-founder of Unicorn Goods. “Companies that make animal-friendly, planet-friendly products are being rewarded by the market, and new companies are joining in every day.”

Unicorn Goods currently works with hundreds of companies to source thousands of products globally. Like Unicorn Goods itself, many of the companies they work with are explicitly vegan and carry certifications from third parties like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

“We are excited for this year’s Best of Vegan Awards™. There are so many fantastic brands and products in the running,” says CEO Cayla Mackey. “We are looking forward to recognizing companies that are making things that don’t harm animals, people, or the planet.”

Voting is open from September 1st through 11:59 PM EST September 30th as accessible through the Unicorn Goods home page.
