Moby has announced that all of the profits from his new vegan restaurant, Little Pine, will be donated to animal welfare organizations.

The musician's organic, plant-based eatery in Silver Lake, will give 100% of profits to a variety of groups, including The Humane Society, Mercy for Animals, Farm Sanctuary, Sea Shepherd and PETA, among others. The restaurant, which opened in November of 2015, serves Mediterranean-inspired vegan fare and also features a small shop with artisanal home goods curated by the DJ.

“Opening little pine was never meant to be a conventional entrepreneurial endeavor," Moby explains in a release. "I want it to represent veganism in a really positive light, and also help to support the animal welfare organizations who do such remarkable work.”

While some restaurants have been known to donate a portion of profits to charitable groups—and one in Pasadena going so far as donating half—it's not often that you hear of a place donating everything.
