From Vegan Delis to Polluted Pop-Up Art Galleries

 - Apr 30, 2017
April 2017 eco trends reveal both health and food related insights, as well as endeavors in the artistic realm that bring to light some of the issues surrounding waste, pollution and its consequences.

The meat industry has many adverse effects on the environment and has been known to directly impact climate change – a fact which functions as one of the many reasons why some people opt to live vegetarian or vegan lifestyles. The vegan industry is now growing fast enough that stores such as Gusta Foods are opening up – a vegan deli that and offers meat-free products that are displayed as real meat would be in a traditional deli.

Art can be powerful in its impact on how people become aware of, or interpret, various issues. The Clean Air Gallery took advantage of this fact, as the gallery functions as a small pop-up space that those passing by can enter to view artwork that has been created with pollution.
