Out to make a change

We chat to Suzanne Loudwill, co-founder of The Green Woman, the eco-deodorant company leading by example

How did The Green Woman and Fit Pit Natural Deodorant come to be?

Our co-founder Eve has a chemistry degree and a masters in environmental decision making. After many years in this area, she let her job and became involved in climate change and social equality. During this time she reduced her consumption, and began making her own natural alternatives for the basics she needed. After gifting her deodorant to me, we realised how effective it was. I have a background in graphic and online design and experience taking products to market, so we founded The Green Woman and, after a year of development, Fit Pit was born.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our June issue. It’s my favourite time of year, when hot days and warm evenings, beach trips and long walks fill our time. And with all the joy that summer brings, it’s the perfect time to gather your friends and advocate in the best way possible — with fantastic food. It was this time last year that I hosted a BBQ at my own house, and served my omni friends an entirely vegan menu (including my first ever bash at vegan mac’n’cheese). It was a great success and triggered some of my friends into making more animal and planet-friendly decisions when doing their food shops. We’ve put together everything you need to host your own BBQ bonanza (p40) — from food, drinks and sauces to ice cream and hosting tips — so your summer gathering will be both delicious and memorable. Not all experiences with non-vegans are so positive. The topic of ‘vegaphobia’, or hatred towards vegans, has been floating around Vegan Life HQ. As an office full of vegans, most of us have experienced some kind of backlash or negativity — I myself have been shouted at in public, for merely stating my vegan point of view. We asked you about your own experiences of this phenomenon (p68) and your answers were illuminating — one woman was even turned down a job because of her veganism. It seems that despite so much progress, some people still take task with us choosing a peaceful way of life. Jessie Keogh covers how to deal with these testing situations on p120. Have a great month,
