In this issue of Vegan Life : Happy New Year! Looking back on 2019 it was a time of enormous change, with Greta Thunberg on the cover of Time magazine, Extinction Rebellion grabbing the headlines and a huge backlash against single-use plastics and fast fashion. The collective consciousness has changed and priorities, for a lot of people, have shifted.
Veganism hit the mainstream in a way never seen before, as plant-based foods flooded the market and celebrities brought the conversation to the masses.
Plant milks saw exponential growth, beauty brands displayed their vegan credentials, restaurant menus were altered and supermarket shelves heaved with new vegan options.
One activist and educator who has been at the forefront of fighting for change is Earthling Ed. We have long admired his work — the dignified and collected way he eloquently argues for animal rights and the diversity of his activism through Surge and, more recently, the delicious food served at his Unity Diner. So who better to grace our first cover of 2020? In our exclusive interview (p18) we discuss the future of veganism and how as the movement grows, we face bigger resistance, but also more opportunity for progress.
Finally, for all those who are new to veganism and taking on Veganuary,
welcome. Within these pages and our brilliant supplement I hope you find the support and answers you are looking for. You’ve just made a life-changing decision for yourself, the planet and the animals.

Have a great month,

Phillipa Smith
Editor
