Vegetarian & Vegan Links

The world is more veg-friendly than you might think, but even where it is not, vegan and vegetarian travelers, and those just trying to be more eco-friendly in general, have come together to provide books, organizations and other resources to help you keep your homegrown beliefs while away from home. If you’ve found a site that you think should be included here, send us an email with the URL and a short description of why it’s helpful.
