India's first vegan magazine will soon be available in a number of outlets across the US and Canada.
VegPlanet will hit shelves in bookstores and health food markets at the end of January after being picked up by a major magazine distribution company in North America.
The magazine - which launched a year ago - features a team of writers and contributors from more than 15 countries.
Niranjan Amarnath, Editor of VegPlanet Magazine, said: "When we heard the news, we were ecstatic, our vegan community-based magazine going global - awesome.
"VegPlanet's intentions have always been to be a community-based magazine - not just the community in our backyard, but also our common community around the world."
James Reimers, who helped bring VegPlanet to America, said: "What makes VegPlanet unique to me is that it offers much more than most plant-based magazines.
"It doesn't just feature vegan recipes, health and fashion tips, it offers stories that tackle important animal rights issues, wildlife and environmental conservation and protection, vegan activism and other matters I'm concerned with and want to know about.
"Also, in this day and age when the trend seems to be separating people - building walls or barriers, VegPlanet wants to help build bridges and bring people together - which is refreshing."
With distribution in India, the USA and Canada, and with interest coming in from distributors in the UK and Australia, VegPlanet's content is also going global.
Editor Niranjan Amarnath says the title will feature 'more stories from around the world that highlight the vegan, animal rights and environmental movements and the common ground we all share'.
