If there’s ever been a magazine with an apropos name, it’s the new Driftwood, which proudly commits to “A celebration of what is possible in a vegan world.” This freshly carved vegan collective promises travel and culture for the “graduated vegan,” and they deliver in spades. Like a piece actual of driftwood, this quarterly seamlessly floats from place to place, like a plant-based vagabond. Despite the claim that Driftwood is targeted for the graduated vegan, this is the type of publication that will grab non-vegans attention as well. After all, who doesn’t love a well-crafted indie magazine with hypnotic photos and savory illustrations?
The inaugural, of sure to be many issues, covers places such as Tel Aviv, Italy, South Korea, Budapest, and Kathmandu, and topics such as tattoos, cultural sensitivity, expanding vegan menus on Amtrak as well as other subjects. Perhaps our favorite article of issue one was the interview with the always witty and candid Nicole J. Georges. Nicole waxed about influences, inspirations, and non-profits. And you even get to glimpse at one of the panels in her stellar graphic novel, Calling Dr. Laura: A Graphic Memoir. Another standout feature is the Book Club, which reviews and publishes excerpts from the some of the latest vegan books.
Driftwood’s articles are well thought out, intelligently written, and very accessible, as a vegan concert of effort by honest and earnest people drives this celebration of all things vegan Another standout feature is the Vegan Faces . Here, the team at Driftwood collects portraits of vegans from all different regions and backgrounds, to uplift and celebrate our community!

Although they accept submissions from talented vegan contributors worldwide, the heart and soul of Driftwood is Holly Feral (Founder and Editor-in-chief), Michele Truty (Managing Editor), and Sarah Cadwell (Art Director). These women work tirelessly to put together a meaningful publication of true quality. Driftwood is available in both digital and print editions.The print edition is printed on thick, coated, 100% post-consumer-recycled paper, making Driftwood a collectible piece rather than a disposable magazine. And it must be pointed out that the ads in Driftwood are tastefully placed. Yep. We take issue with obnoxious, in-your-face marketing.
Driftwood’s first edition has set the bar high. With the pedigree of talent working on this wonderful magazine, there’s little doubt that they will connect the vegan world, one issue at a time.
