hello,

Welcome to February! Where did January go? It seems as if the month came and went so quickly, bringing with it tonnes of delicious new Veganuary offerings, as well as newbie vegans.

why am i vegan?

NAME: Tallulah Lebon AGE: 19 NUMBER OF YEARS VEGAN: 19 LOCATION: Norfolk, UK I WENT VEGAN BECAUSE… I’ve been vegan since birth — so why change? Animals are not food, and no one should be brought up to think they are. All animals have a heart, lungs and brain — just like we do. They don’t understand why humans are killing them for fun or to eat them. What have they done to ever be treated like this? Veganism is also incredible for health and has really helped me growing up with loads of intolerance to wheat and gluten. MY ADVICE TO OTHERS ON BECOMING VEGAN… Don’t stress thinking it’s too hard to find vegan food as all is labelled hugely in all supermarkets. MY HOPE FOR THE FUTURE… For all people to consider going vegan…

“I didn’t want my eating to have anything to do with damaging the planet or hurting animals” Since 2004, You Me At Six have been entertaining fans with their lyrical and musical genius that continues to innovate the industry, and now, the English rock band have a new album out: SUCKAPUNCH. Not only that — but the band have also released a powerfully spicy vegan hot sauce (trust us, the burn is good!), named after their electrifying new album. Ahead of the record launch, we caught up with the band’s frontman and lead singer, Josh Franceschi, a vegan of almost 10 years. Josh chats to us about his favourite track, walks us through the band’s hot sauce collaboration with Lou’s Brew’s, and shares his thoughts and hopes for veganism. Hey Josh! Congrats to…

Each month, send us your questions and we’ll pitch them to those in the know. Whether you’re unsure about the best way to cook tofu, or you need some vegan dating advice, we’ve got your back. Q I’d like to start feeding my dog vegan chow… How do I go about doing this? Dogs can do very well on a plant-based diet, but it must be a specially formulated food and not just an extra portion of whatever you’re having. There are many things we eat — onions, leeks, garlic, avocado, grapes, xylitol, for example — that are toxic to dogs. Plus, our physiology and nutritional needs are quite different. So, buy a dog food, and one that is ‘complete’. That means it has all the nutrients dogs need and is not just…
