In this issue of Vegan Life : Since we last brought this magazine to you, the world has, indeed, been turned upside down. The outbreak of the coronavirus has carried with it many changes into our everyday lives, with only essential trips and one daily bout of exercise outside of the house allowed (I’m living for my lunchtime bike rides, right now). Businesses and plans may have been put on hold, but we must live on and we need to stay optimistic.
It is from my dining room table-now-desk that I write to you, hoping to continue to share the vegan message, as well as spread some much-needed positivity. When we pull together, we can do great things, as many amazing vegan companies and individuals have shown. I was warmed to learn that plant-based seafood brand, Sophie’s Kitchen, recently donated 4,500 cans of their vegan ‘Toona’ to hospitals and foodbanks (p11) and have heard so many similarly uplifting stories of peoples’ acts of kindness. If there is ever a community that knows how to lead by example, it is surely the vegan community, as our columnist, Karin Ridgers, discusses this month (p66). Someone that is certainly showing us the way, is Catherine Besch, one of the founders of Vietnam Animal Aid and Rescue, who are working hard in Vietnam to re-educate vets and spread veganism to save animals. She shares their story on p34.
If you’re looking to learn new skills whilst we’re in lockdown, turn to p62 to find out how to become more self-sufficient, and try your hand at Gaz Oakley’s tasty recipes (p89). We chat to the passionate vegan chef on p18.
And in good news, we’ve now made the move to become a digital publication. We hope this will help us to reach more of you from the touch of a button. Alongside Vegan Life, you will now receive three other titles for free, to inspire, entertain and motivate you.
Have a great month and stay safe,
