As soon as I realised I didn’t have to harm others to live, I stopped harming others. Vegan living… “cutting four carrots with one knife”.
You can be apart of the movement that will help paint your picture. Perceptions are everything, influence thought here in others, and more considerate actions will follow.
Here’s to how you can help, through being you…
Your story may allow another to realise, how they could be more of an active influence for others themselves.
Check out the stories below, to see how other vegans thought about and acted on what matters to them, what they asked to learn what they needed. and how they adapted to better their approach..
And if you’ve already been active in some way, do contribute your story and help inspire others by just tapping here,
I felt like just being vegan wasn’t enough and like if I could educate people that there would be some who would then listen and become vegan as well, whereas just being vegan and being quiet that person or persons may miss out on learning about veganism and therefore never go vegan.
I decided to act about a year into being vegan when I started to add vegan things to a blog I had already had for a few years with 5,000 followers, so I started there and then found VEGO. I felt the blog was a good start as I’m quiet and not the most social person, and once I became more confident and learned more of the facts I felt I could do more and so I found VEGO and joined them.
I went to the internet mainly, and then to a vegan blog on Tumblr titled ”adviceforvegans.com” who gave me more specific answers to any questions I had. It benefited me as the blog owner, Mary, helped me learn more facts and how to approach non vegans.
I gained insights on learning how carnism and dairy consumption impacts the world and a person, I learned in more detail about abuse that occurs towards the unfortunate victims. I apply these into being an active vegan while talking to non vegans confidently to help and educate them on the damage they are causing.
Your story could be lived through a personal or business context. Doing something you love, where the impact can be channeled to support veganism in someway.
Little or huge, help influence others by doing what you do …and by letting us know why you felt the want or need to become more active.
