Marla Rose and John Beske hatched the idea for the original VeganStreet.com in 1997 in the middle of a long road trip through Maine where they got hopelessly lost multiple times because they couldn’t understand the accents there. This was serendipitous: on one long stretch of highway, they came up with the name.
On another windy seaside road, they came up with the concept. They knew that they wanted to dedicate their time to promoting veganism and they went to Maine with the intention of figuring it out by the time they had to come home. Vegan Street conveyed the sense of community and spirit of optimism they felt about compassionate living. Through combining their convictions about veganism with their passions for writing, communications and the arts, they began to carve out their perfect vehicle to express it with — VeganStreet.com.
Vegan Street published original content every week from 1998 – interviews, reviews, essays and so on – until 2003. It has been dormant since then. Until now.
