Patience is a virtue

When the efforts we make to convert friends and family to veganism can often seem futile, sometimes a little patience can prove to be the most persuasive method of all

We all have them: those stubborn family members or friends that could ‘Never give up cheese’, or insist on including meat in at least two out of their three daily meals. The people that we’ve given up trying to discuss animal welfare with, knowing that whatever points we raise will be swept away by the same hand that reaches for a second helping of meat at Sunday dinner. Frustratingly, we’ll often give up hope of converting those closest to us before we do with anyone else, whether it be because we ‘know what they’re like’, or we simply don’t want to cause an argument at home. But what if, instead of accepting that these loved ones will never give veganism a chance, we remained patient and hopeful?

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our jam-packed July issue. It’s always around this time of year that our staff get a bit thin on the ground, as we all head off on our summer holidays. We’ve had team members head to Ibiza, Madrid and Bali, armed with lists and recommendations, all seeking sun, sea and delicious vegan food. So to make sure you have your best summer yet, we’ve rounded up our top holiday suggestions (p42), got your sun care (p44) and snacks covered (p48) and Will Rankin has some brilliant travel hacks guaranteed to make your trip runs smoothly (p50). Closer to home, we have taken an in-depth look at the state of British wildlife (p106). I can remember, as a girl, walking through woods and seeing a huge array of animals — moles poking their heads out of mounds, timid rabbits darting back to their burrows and ponds lined with frogs. A walk through the countryside, sadly, can feel very different now — our wildlife is in serious and rapid decline with 11 per cent of our woodland species threatened with extinction. We uncover the issues affecting British nature and talk with those trying to save it. I’m also really excited to introduce our hilarious new columnist Claire Thrift (p58), who tells us about how her family are winning this BBQ season. Have a great month
