Business Listing Guidelines

VEGANBUSINESSLISTINGS exists to provide more choices for the vegan community, and to support those business owners who do not eat meat, fish, dairy, or eggs.

 

Our objective in establishing these guidelines is to ensure that all site users can be confident that the businesses and organizations we present are truly operating in a spirit that enhances and serves the vegan community.

 

For purposes of this site, the term “vegan” is defined as someone who never eats meat, fish, dairy or eggs. “Vegan” includes raw foodists (who do not eat meat), and fruitarians. 

 

The term “meat” is defined as the flesh of any once-living being not a member of the plant kingdom. Therefore, the flesh of all other land, sea, or air creatures is considered “meat” for purposes of this definition.

 

Anyone may use this site regardless of food choice. 

 

However, in order to list your business on this site, you must be vegan. 


Again, this means that you never eat meat. 


By listing your business on this site you are declaring that you are a vegan according to our guidelines. 

 

You further understand and agree that your listing will be terminated if you are found to be in violation of our guidelines. You further agree not to attempt to list your business again until all listing criteria are met. 

 

If in the future you meet our criteria, you would be welcomed to list your business with us, and will be greeted with open arms, praises and congratulations! 

 

One rare exception to the requirement that all owners of a business are vegan is if your business specializes in raw or vegan products that we have determined would be of significant interest and value to our members. For these situations, we are making available a limited quantity of banner ads at reasonable monthly rates. 

 

All listing submissions are subject to review and will be accepted on a case-by-case basis. We do not accept listings of other directories, or any services designed to connect members who are not specifically vegan. We reserve the right to limit membership to businesses we feel conform to our guidelines. 

 

Sometimes, the decision of who qualifies to be listed with VEGANBUSINESSLISTINGS is not an easy one to make. We’ll contact you if we need clarification, and you are welcome to contact us for further conversation. If we feel that your situation falls outside of VEGANBUSINESSLISTINGS vision and guidelines, we’ll try to offer recommendations to help. 

 

If you have any questions about these guidelines, please email us. 

 

Thanks for visiting!
