24-Hour Vegan Vending Machine Lands in Melbourne

Vegan snacks, coconut water, kombucha, salads, and sandwiches are now available at the push of a button any time of day in the Australian city.

An all-vegan vending machine was spotted in Melbourne, Australia last week by Instagrammer Lana Schwarcz. The bright green machine is emblazoned with “24 Hour Vegan,” “Organic Vegan,” and an inspiration quote that reads, “He who is not satisfied with a little, is satisfied with nothing." The machine sits opposite of the city’s parliament house (a meeting place for government officials) and offers a variety of juices, coconut water, kombucha, salads, sandwiches, chocolate bars, and other vegan snacks. As seen in Schwarcz’s photo, several slots in the machine appear empty, indicating that people have already made several purchases. Melbourne is also home to The Cruelty Free Shop (the largest vegan grocery store in the world), which stocks more than 3,500 plant-based products.
