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

My first ever video on my YouTube channel… So don’t be too mean! I don’t really know much about editing so hopefully they will keep getting better 🙂

Ethical Fashion

Clothing choice is not something I really thought about too much before going vegan, obviously as a vegetarian I tried to avoid leather, but my consideration didn’t really stretch much further than that. Now, however, I feel that not only is it important for me to avoid animal derived products like wool, but to also…read more

Cruelty-free Cosmetics

Most women, myself included, love cosmetics, and it’s safe to say that most also love animals. Yet, despite the ban on animal tested products within the EU, Israel and India, consumers are still buying cosmetics that have been tested on animals throughout the rest of the world, with the biggest contributors being the USA and…read more

The Issue With: Plastic.

Plastic is ruining our oceans, and it is our fault. Commercially, plastic is used for everything, bags, bottles, supermarket packaging and more, meaning it is nearly inescapable. Due to this, plastic pollution is a big issue for every major water way in the world, harming sea birds, mammals and fish. Cuts, strangulation and ingestion are…read more

Bored? Got Netflix or YouTube? Be sure to watch these…

Before going vegan, I was always interested in the lifestyle, but never really had the urge to go that last step and convert from vegetarianism to full on veganism. I was always interested in health and nutrition, so often found myself checking out food documentaries on Netflix, little did I know that one day, it…read more
