Yaoh Wins Vegan Society Award!
Yaoh are more than thrilled to announce that they have won the award for Best Cruelty Free Non Food Product for their fantastic vegan hemp lipbalms in the Vegan Society's 2008 awards. Timbo from Yaoh said 'We are really really uplifted by this award in the office – we are working very hard on several new vegan projects and are particularly happy that it is our first Yaoh product, the hemp lipbalm, which we started out with 7 years ago ,that has won us this award. And The Vegan Society Awards are still the big one for us – there are other awards out there, we even run our own awards (the Vegan Environmental Awards) but the Vegan Society ones are the ones that count the most, in my humble opinion.
Thanks very much to all the Society and their members for recognising our compact and bijoux achievements in the vegan circles over the years, and in particular our beautiful Lipbalms!! There are a lot of most excellent vegan non food products out there, so it means a lot to be the winner! Thanks, Peeps.
