Why am I Vegan

I WENT VEGAN BECAUSE… I’d been vegetarian for a little while, but after drinking a hot chocolate one day, I started to think about the ingredients — where they came from, how the milk came to us and what the cows did for us. I felt it wasn’t fair and was disappointed in myself, so went vegan like my parents.

MY HOPE FOR THE FUTURE IS… that more people will realise that animals aren’t there for us, they’re with us.

MY ADVICE TO ASPIRING VEGANS IS… little changes are easier than changing everything immediately. Veganuary is a great way to start. Want to be on this page?
