Activist first, vegan second.

Fishing boats in Thailand near the shore.

I'd like to think we're all in this together, and we share the same goals. However, every now and then I realize that "for the animals" only goes so far, and that's when I start to realize it's just not far enough for me. Read More »

Tackling the Issues With LP Hoopla

Ryan Patey getting his fibre.

A great interview can depend on a lot of things, but one of the most important ones is the questions that are asked. In my opinion, one of those questions should always be "what's your favourite animal?" Read More »

Meatless moguls: CEOs and celebs turning vegan

Although I’m not sure which I find more annoying these days, PETA offering to pay for Lohan’s rehab or the previous chatter about Bill Clinton and Mike Tyson turning vegan, I have to admit that this recent trend of big names giving up the animal in their diet is a positive thing.
