“When I see animals being abused, it ills my heart with sadness and I put it into my art”

We chat to Alba Paris, about how she uses her creativity to help people to make those all-important connections

Around the year 1999 (I can’t remember the exact day — I am so jealous of those who can celebrate their veganniversary, because it is truly a celebration of a new life) I saw a video of a horse going to slaughter. They were being pushed out of a truck, and then something horrific was done to the horse, that I felt was taken out of a horror movie — and it suddenly clicked. I stopped eating animals and became vegetarian right then. I started volunteering at dog and cat shelters, making T-shirt designs to raise money for them, and I started participating in protests for animal rights and against fur and wool. As well as all of this, I co-created the first vegetarian and vegan online forum in Spain, called GreenPeach.

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
