In this issue of Vegan Life : Welcome to our August issue — time is really flying this year. I recently watched the BBC series Years and Years, a dystopian drama following the lives of a middle class family, set in the not so distant future. Though the script has come from the imaginations of its talented writers, it’s terrifyingly believable. Floods, disease, famine, displacement, recession, homelessness, the re-election of Trump, the
supremacy of technology and nuclear war are all part of daily life. As things go from bad to worse, the grandmother and matriarch of the family delivers a powerful speech, telling her grandchildren: “It’s all your fault… Dear God, what a carnival. This is the world we built. Congratulations, cheers all.” And this struck a real chord with me. Programmes like this, even though fictional, serve as a reminder that we aren’t doing enough and that we need to continue spreading our vegan message far and wide if we want to tackle the huge problems that could be headed our way. The task in hand can seem overwhelming, but there are so many people helping to make the world a better place.
This issue, we meet Derek Sarno who is bringing veganism to the masses through his collaboration with Tesco, we talk to Friends of The Earth about the importance of increasing the amount of trees in the UK, Maria Slough interviews Oggs founder, Hannah Carter, who is working tirelessly to put the egg industry into decline and Samantha Fung
discusses her powerful artivism. Let’s keep heading in the right direction.

Have a great month,

Phillipa Smith
