hello,

Welcome to March — the precursor for spring and new life. We’ve made it through the worst part of winter, and can now hope for sunnier, perhaps merrier times to come. I’d like to open this issue with an excerpt of a poem by James Perry, printed in PACT Animal Sanctuary’s new book, Pets in Poetry and Prose, and I’d like to dedicate it to everyone that has lost someone recently, whether human or non-human animal. It reads: “Nature has the power of healing; its gifts are there for all. They are constantly replenished, abundant, plentiful. So, when you are out in nature, it is not silence you desire, but the sounds of life ongoing.” I hope these words can tempt you to step outside, wherever you are and whatever you are feeling,…

why am i vegan?

NAME: Melanie Garnett AGE: 20 NUMBER OF YEARS VEGAN: 4 LOCATION: Kent, UK I WENT VEGAN BECAUSE… I took part in Veganuary as a challenge to raise money for charity and stayed vegan after learning about the realities of animal agriculture.

papertale

The textiles industry is not well known for being transparent about its supply chain, although numerous companies claim that their products are made via sustainable and ethical practices. This ‘greenwashing’ makes shopping difficult for us consumers, who are trying our best to make sustainable life choices. Hundreds of clothing brands claim that their products are organic — as you’ll likely see on clothing labels in your favourite shops, yet according to the Organic Trade association, less than one per cent of global cotton production is organic. New Swedish blockchain technology PaperTale, is helping consumers to see through misleading claims. Simply scan the label of a PaperTaled product with your smartphone and get authenticated information about the supply chain and the product’s environmental impact. We, as consumers, are therefore given the power to…

“Draw people in with tasty food, then explain the ethical and environmental plight of our generation” A vegan for over five years and a chef for many more, Brett Cobley knows a thing or two about cooking up delicious food. Brett’s debut cookbook, What Vegans Eat, was a myriad of delights and we are excited to see what his next cookbook, due for release this year, will help us to make. We chat to the inspiring chef and mental health advocator about his much-anticipated new book, as well as his vegan journey and foodie guilty pleasure. Hey, Brett!
