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

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

The Vegan Kind: April

As always, April’s box does not disappoint!

The Psychology of Eating Meat

The Truth Behind Your Fur Coat

Since 80-85% of the global fur trade’s products are industrially produced on fur farms, these animals endure the same confinement and poor treatment as animals farmed for meat and dairy as farmers often want to maximise their profits, at the expense of the animals.
