What does a vegan look like?

Sally-Anne Bedford finds out if there’s such a thing as a ‘typical’ vegan

This year I took my son to Vegan Campout with the promise of an endless supply of vegan crêpes and meat-free hot-dogs, and he was more than happy to oblige! We were excited to spend the weekend with 5,000 like-minded souls, but, I wondered, how diff erent (or similar) would we all be? Would there be a sea of tie-dyed T-shirts? Thousands of balaclava clad activists combat crawling through the bushes, or would we all be assuming the lotus position while we ate chickpeas and drank green tea? It’s time to leave your preconceptions at the front of the tent, because it turns out there is no such thing as a typical vegan! Here are just a few of the amazing people that we met at the event that help to banish those vegan stereotypes.

Ellis Goodridge

Age: 23

Occupation: I work for an ethical fashion brand

Vegan: 3 years and 2 months, but it feels like forever!

Eureka! I was vegetarian for two years before I went vegan. I guess the more I educated myself and watched documentaries such as Cowspiracy etc, I realised that going vegan was the next thing to do in order to align my diet with my morals.
