Van Life Begins 

The travels have finally started! After years of waiting, our bags were packed, our home in Cornwall was left and the long journey to Australia began. After two days of travel (including lots of tasty vegan plane food – well done Philippine Airlines) we finally arrived in Cairns, located in the north east of Australia. …read more

The Vegan Kind: August

A group of researchers looked into two differing databases that were popular sources for teaching materials, particularly in primary schools. These resources included experiments, demonstrations, assignments, videos…read more

My New Favourite Vegan Documentary?

Vegans sometimes get a bad name for themselves, as they are often seen as radical, preachy people, but Simon Amstell’s new feature length documentary may just change this perception. How?
