FRACKING HELL

We investigate the truth behind the planet-destroying industry

Environmental

Fracking is one of the biggest environmental scourges to hit the UK — there’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the process, but what does it really mean for the land and the communities affected?

WHAT IS FRACKING?

Fracking is a term used to describe the process of fracturing rock to release shale gas and oil. It is a hydraulic practice, which is notoriously opposed by the public and campaigners. The earth is drilled into and a mixture of water, sand and chemicals is directed at the rock to release the gas at highpressure. It can be done vertically or horizontally, which allows for new pathways to access more oil, and gas to be made, and extend the channels that already exist. The gas and oil is extracted by energy companies, who then use this to power homes and businesses.

About Vegan Life

Over the past few years we’ve really seen veganism grow — there are more and more options for us to eat in our restaurants and shops, and vegan foods are rightly taking their share of the supermarket aisles. With the huge rise of meat-replacement products it’s never been easier to create exciting and tasty meals. With celebrity chefs like Gaz Oakley and restaurateur Loui Blake bringing veganism to new audiences with their innovative food, eating vegan is becoming a real choice for both vegans and non-vegans. It’s not only our eating habits and choices that are changing and expanding — our options when it comes to clothes and accessories are only getting broader. In this month’s fashion special Fat Gay Vegan looks at how far we’ve come, Jackie Lutz offers advice on building a cruelty-free closet, and we make shopping for your autumn wardrobe easier than ever with our pick of the best vegan products. Despite these positive changes, there’s still a lot to fight for. Melanie James investigates the cruelty behind cosmetic animal testing and we meet vegan photographer Amanda Clark who is telling the stories of beautiful farm animals, who are often cruelly overlooked. We’re really excited to share our inspiring Eco Living supplement with you this month, too. It's packed with ideas and information on some of the most pressing problems facing our planet. From how to live waste-free to the truth about fracking, we hope you’ll feel inspired to make some positive changes. See you next month
