Why I am vegan
I have been vegan now for over 10 years, vegetarian for 15 years before that - and I really wish I had been vegan all my life but unfortunately I was not self-aware enough and was not in a vegan environment to help encourage this awareness, but now I am 100% vegan for the rest of my life (im even sat here right now with a tshirt on which says 100% vegan on it!) I believe that being vegan is much more then a diet, it is a commitment to peace and love, and a deep wish to reduce and avoid causing hurt or harm to any sentient beings, I love veganism and the cause.
Why I support Viva's Art for Animals project
Viva! is a charity I have been aware of for a long time, I have even spent many hours on the streets handing out leaflets and at stalls from Viva! (photo above is of me at a stall I set up in Aberystwyth). Viva la vegan revolucion!!
