Driftwood is a little different. This magazine, available in both print and digital form, focuses on specific vegan features, such as The Rise And Fall Of The Vegan Tattoo and Be Nice or Leave: To Be a Vegan New Orleanian. It does not cover recipes or general vegan news, instead it deals with broader vegan issues.
