How can our blue planet be running out of water?

How many times a day do you turn a tap on? Every time you want a drink, after you go to the loo, or whilst you’re showering — water is readily available, but unfortunately, we often take it for granted. From the birds and the bees, to the clothing on our backs, every aspect of life depends on water — so much so, that it has become a commodity we rely on. However, as we use so much, we are draining our resources, despite the fact there are millions of people across the globe who do not have access to clean, safe water.

Conservation is key

Living on a blue planet can make it seem like water is a completely renewable source — after all, it fills our oceans, falls from the skies and pours endlessly from a flick of a tap. But as climate change is gifting us with heatwaves, droughts, rising sea levels and floods — to name a few — we are putting a strain on our planet and are at risk of endangering our supply. Conserving water has never been more important, not just for us, but for animals and future generations, too.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to the March issue. It’s my favourite time of year, as the evenings get lighter and the first signs of spring emerge. It’s the perfect time of year to dust off the winter cobwebs and refocus on our goals. This year has already seen a lot of change for the vegan movement — Veganuary was a huge success, with 250,000 sign-ups, and hopefully a large proportion of those who took part will continue their vegan journeys. We have seen an unprecedented amount of vegan food launches, too — in supermarkets and restaurants — and it feels like change is really happening. But with all change there is controversy — we take a look into the issues and backlash surrounding some of these new launches. Mother’s Day is on the 31st of March, and what better way to celebrate the women who raised us than by treating them to a vegan high tea? We’ve rounded up the best and the recipes you need if you want to make your own. It’s important to remember those who don’t get to spend the day with loved ones, and this includes the millions of dairy cows cruelly separated from their parents. We take some time to reflect. We also had the pleasure of talking to the inspirational James Aspey this month. The activist and campaigner has some great advice for advocating. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Smith
