Earth Day 2024

Celebrating Earth Day

Earth Day falls on April 22nd each year, with events taking place around the world to demonstrate support for environmental protection. The day serves as a powerful reminder of our collective responsibility to protect and nurture the environment and this year, ‘Meet The Vegans’ (MTV) and Chef Greg Hanger are hosting an evening at Unity Diner in London, to mark the day and emphasise the positive impact that plant-based diets have on our planet.

Celebrated for his Michelin-starred expertise and unwavering commitment to sustainability, Chef Greg has curated a special five-course menu for the occasion,  and Honestly Tasty are sponsoring the event to help raise awareness - providing award-winning cheese for exclusive canapes on arrival. By centering an event around vegan dining, Meet The Vegans hopes to highlight the sustainable and ethical benefits of a plant-based lifestyle.

Have you heard about ‘Meet The Vegans’ (MTV)?

Meet The Vegans serves as an online learning hub where users can discover vegan cooking courses led by expert chefs and culinary personalities. The platform offers everything from basic cooking techniques to advanced culinary skills, all focused on plant-based ingredients. Most recently, Chef Herby joined the gang! Chef who?! Herby is an AI powered culinary assistant, on hand to provide users with personalised guidance, recipe adaptations and answers to cooking queries. Not sure what to cook with what’s left in the fridge? Ask Herby! 

Beyond cooking classes, Meet The Vegans aims to build a vibrant community of plant-based enthusiasts. It's a place where users can share their culinary creations, exchange tips, and connect over shared values of health, sustainability, and animal welfare. Through engaging content, interactive features, and a commitment to quality, MTV strives to empower individuals to explore the richness of vegan cuisine and embrace a plant-based lifestyle.

The Earth Day Supper Club 

Ever wondered what ocean foam or edible plastic tastes like?! Probably not - but we hope you’re curious now! The menu will incorporate interesting talking points like these, alongside locally foraged ingredients such as yarrow (foraging provides a low-impact way of sourcing ingredients) and veg supplied by Streetbox - who source their produce from wholesale markets around London, finding surplus fruit and veg that will otherwise go to waste, to create fresh and seasonal boxes for their customers every every week! 


The menu has been designed to create an immersive journey - connecting guests with the origins of their food. By curating a menu that showcases variety, flavour, and creativity in vegan cooking, the team hope to dispel any myths about plant-based diets being restrictive or uninteresting. By sharing stories about the dishes, their ingredients, and their environmental benefits, the team hopes to inspire guests to consider incorporating more plant-based meals into their lives, not just for their health but for the health of our planet too.
