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.

Should Our Pets Be Vegan?

People have the ability to make a choice about what they eat, often based on their beliefs surrounding ethics, health and the environment. Despite the fact that many of these people own companion animals,  the topic of what vegans should feed their pets is a contentious one.   The oldest living dog in the world, Bramble,…read more

Doubling your ‘5 a day’

In the UK currently, we are told we should be consuming at least 5 portions of fruit or veg per day (around 400g). Despite this, only one third of people actually meet this target, which is worrying as new research, led by scientists from Imperial College London, found that the most benefit came from eating…read more

Sexism in Science?

I am a girl. I study science. Yet why when researchers asked children to draw a scientist did the overwhelming majority draw a man in a white lab coat? 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? By delivering the hard truth, akin to the kind of things you would see in Earthlings or Cowspiracy, but in a ‘mockumentary’ style. The film,…read more

What’s Wrong With Dairy?

Most people think the meat and dairy industry are two separate things, but often, that is not the case. Animals used for dairy are often still subject to suffering in factory farms, and often also end up as meat. Both male calves and chicks are typically euthanised within the first few days of their lives, as…read more

Being Vegan in Newquay

When people think of Cornwall, they typically think of seafood, ice cream, clotted cream, pasties and fudge… And this is not good news when you’re a vegan.

One of the biggest culprits, contributing to all of…read more

The Addiction Is Real

Lush is a British cosmetics company with a mission: To provide consumers with natural hair, body and beauty products, which in my opinion, they do very well! Which is why, over time, this has happened: I would say around 80% of all of my beauty products are from Lush, my make up, shower gels, moisturisers,…read more
