Young vegan activist honoured by US doll brand for environmental activism

Vegan teen activist Genesis Butler is being celebrated by popular US doll brand, American Girl, as part of its Conversation for Change series. Genesis, along with other youth environmental activists, is honoured in the latest episode in the series, 'Use Your Outside Voice: Climate Change'.

Genesis, who has been vegan since the age of six, says: \"Partnering with American Girl to spread my message about the connections between climate change and animal agriculture really made me hopeful because American Girl has such a huge audience.

So many people who weren't aware of this issue will now know after seeing my feature on American Girl's website. It also makes me hopeful because this shows companies like American Girl are helping to raise awareness on all causes of climate change, not just fossil fuels, which there is so much focus
on.\" (vegnews.com)
