Tell us about your own vegan journey and a little bit about you now.

I grew up on a farm and later moved to the city, and I regularly returned to the farm to visit my grandparents where keeping animals to eat was always the norm to me, and I never questioned it, not until I was 23 when I read a book called “Tiere essen” (“To Eat Animals”) I then forced myself to watch all of the horrible documentaries, that made me open my eyes to the slaughtering of animals. I cried a lot and from that moment I knew, I didn’t want to support this anymore. First step was vegetarianism, but it only took 6 months to know it wasn’t enough, so I started to live a vegan life.

About Vegan Life

I’m so excited to be writing my first editor’s letter and that we are finally, undeniably, amidst the summer season! Speaking of sunshine – this issue we’re taking a trip across the globe to the, what-should-be, luscious rainforests of Indonesia, to examine the devastating effects the palm oil business has wreaked on this stunning, natural area. We also explore how sustainable growing solutions can save the habitat of our characterful, fluffy friends, orangutans, from the relentless palm industry (see page 66). Also in this issue, we are introducing you to the lovely Lucie Shorthouse, a West End star and vegan advocate. She discussed her choice to transition to veganism, the health benefits she found from a plant based diet, and her role in the innovative new play ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ (page 16). With so many vegans making waves in the creative industry, our Art Special celebrates the brave names that paint the true picture of animal cruelty, and cleverly portray the need for veganism through their work – get inspired on page 90. Finally, the summer evokes the need to create fun, easy and time-filling activities for kids, but are our most popular pastimes educating children into insensitive mind-sets? Charlotte Meyer Zu Natrup gives her view on the ‘To zoo, or not to zoo?’ debate on page 76. Enjoy the issue and make sure to share your opinions with us via email, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. P.S. Don’t miss our hilarious article from Jake Yapp, who puts a cheeky twist on chickpeas on page 114.
