2014 is here and it’s time for the FIRST VEGAN PACKAGE SWAP of the new year! Soon VPS will be 1 year and we’re preparing some good surprises to all of you. Thanks to everyone who joined our project and supported it in 2013!
One of the new additions to VPS is our SUPER SWAPPER subscription and instead of advertise it here we’ve got this article from one of our Super Swappers with her opinion about this amazing exclusive feature and VPS in general. Thank you, Monikiu!

I discovered Vegan Package Swap thanks to a girlfriend who actually is not a vegan herself. The idea blew my mind instantly. Something so brilliant and simple!
It took me some time before I participated in my first swap which was in December. First I checked every single detail on the Facebook fan page, what actually people think was worth exchanging and how was the quality and variety of the products.
At Vegan Package Swap you choose where do you want to ship your package, so there are options within your country, region, continent. The most fun would be worldwide. The only issue on shipping worldwide – or even to other countries – is the shipping cost, that can get even more expensive than the cost of the content of your package. You might think that this will happen only when you exchange with people from other continents, right? Not necessarily. In my country (Poland) the cost of package being sent to Asia is similar to this being sent to the northern Europe. Depending on the variety of products available in your country you may want to try certain products you’ve seen somewhere else. So just think well before deciding where you want to ship. You can also change your shipping option from one month to another and you don’t need to join the swap every month.
News spread very quickly among my closest friends and they actually joined the initiative before me My first swap was in December and I decided to become a Super Swapper from the beginning. I though Vegan Package Swap is an excellent idea but to be able to choose who your partner is, that’s super duper cool! And as a plus you get a package insurance as a Super Swapper, so you don’t need to worry about that while shipping your package (and you’re also covered if you don’t get a package from your pair). I myself chose a goofy, inspiring girl from Finland – and I was was really glad I did so. Of course I had plenty of special requests for my swap pair, which she was kind enough to fulfill! I felt the most pampered person in the world when I received my package.
I love the initiative, congratulations to the good people on All About Vegan Food who came up with the idea and will join it to the limit! And for me Super Swap is a way to go. The features make the swap even more exciting and safe.
Have a wonderful beginning of the New Year! Start it with thinking about joining Vegan Package Swap and becoming a Super Swapper!
