Coming up: Vegan week (17-23.9.18)

We are never shy in telling you that we are a vegan company. This means that we don’t use any animal materials, but our animal love doesn’t stop there. Our founding sisters live a completely and active vegan lifestyle. So, we thought it was time to rub some of this vegan enthusiasm of on you!

The frustration
Animal cruelty, deforestation, health issues and common misconception of veganism are just a few of the things that can keep us up at night.

The facts:

About animals:

  • Over 56 billion farmed animals are killed each year for meat production. (That’s more than 153 million each day) This does not even include fish and other sea creatures whose deaths are only measured in tons.
  • Over 100 million animals are killed for fashion each year.
  • Over 100 million animals are being used for animal testing each year.

Take a moment to really let these numbers sink in and know that probably more then 1 million animals died in the meantime. We can go into all the horrific things animals have to go through before they die, but we are guessing you probably already know that. If not, open YouTube and go to PETA’s channel.

On the environment:

The effects of climate change are all around us and apparent. Raising animals for food and dairy requires massive amounts of land, food, energy and water and these industries are therefore two of the most polluting industries out there. Rainforests being chopped down for all the soy that is needed to feed the animals (more than 90 percent of all Amazon rainforest land cleared since 1970 is used for grazing livestock), the manure they produce, the coral reefs that are being destroyed for fishing and so on and so on. I think you get the picture…  On this topic, we’d like to encourage you to check out a documentary. It’s called Cowspiracy and available on Netflix!

On your health:

There is a whole lot of positive and negative information out there. We would like to encourage you to just use your common sense with all of it. Like with every diet there is, it comes down to balancing the right nutrients. All beginnings are difficult and yes, your trip to the store might take 4 times as long the first few tries, but once you get the hang of it, boy you will feel like the best version of yourself! For more information on this topic, the best tip we can give you is to watch “What the Health”. This documentary explains in a very simple and clear way all the health benefits of going plant based. Oh, and its also available on Netflix 😉 (We heart Netflix)

The idea:
For one whole week we will send you 1 newsletter a day with vegan recipes, tips from fellow vegans and some facts to help you keep motivated!

The hope:
Becoming a vegan overnight is not for everyone (even our founding sisters struggled with it). But we sincerely hope that after this week you will become more inspired and have some basic tricks to start living a more “veganistic” lifestyle.
