Here in Vancouver it's pretty easy to live that plant-based life, thanks to restaurants that either specializes in vegan eats or the many that offer vegan-friendly dishes. 

Now a few of Vancouver's popular veg-centric eateries have signed on to take part in the city's inaugural Vegan Week. It's an initiative out of Portland, Oregon that aims to get more people out and trying vegan food available across the city.

Taking place Feb. 24 through March 1, Vancouver's Vegan Week so far features four local restaurants — though more may sign on as the launch date approaches. You'll find Vegan Week offerings at Vancouver's Nuba, Beetbox, Tacofino and Bandidas Taqueria.

Here's what each Vancouver spot is featuring during Vegan Week:
