The Rise of Veganism

Whilst animal advocates and vegans struggle with living in a non-vegan world that doesn’t seem to care that animals, environment and people suffer in through unconscious- and over-consumption, it seems that veganism is on the rise.  People are waking up to the fact there is a better way to treat animals, people and the environment.

In the latest issue to the Natural Vegan Magazine, I state that, “I believe that veganism is the largest social justice movement  on the planet.  The growth is enormous with people waking up to the fact that a plant-based diet is unquestionably better for your health and is responsible for a lighter footprint.  In the process, they become more compassionate to all living beings and the planet.  In short, in becoming vegan, we create a better world for us all”. (Mann 2017)
