|10 Questions: Vegan Rockstar edition with YouTuber and blogger at TheVeganPeach.com Ashley Leslie
Ashley Leslie, a.k.a., The Vegan Peach,
is a straight-talking, down-to-earth and unapologetic vegan activist
who also happens to love herself some cruelty-free products, with an
emphasis on body care products. Before I turn anywhere, I check out
Vegan Peach and her videos to get a run-down on the companies I can
trust with my money as well as other cruelty-free products.
How to offend other vegans without really trying
having a front row seat to observing the superfluity of ways that
people can get offended and pissed off about the most trivial of
matters, I can see that I am doing pretty well with letting go of my
need to please and I’m doing better all the time.

a talented recipe creator and an overall cheerleader for a healthy,
happy vegan life of abundance. In fact, Somer’s new book, the excellent

The difference between niceness and kindness (and why being nice still matters).
kindness is driven by an internal compass and it is rooted in
compassion without much concern about either admiration or
condemnation. In other words, one’s kindness is inwardly rooted.
Niceness, in stark contrast, is externally driven and approval seeking;

10 Questions: Vegan Rockstar with Local Hero Bonnie Goodman
is an ethical vegan in the town of Livingston, Montana, and she does
her outreach – always infused with her playful sense of humor and
welcoming spirit – in a community near Yellowstone National Park that
is far from a vegan mecca. That hasn’t stopped her.
On Honoring Where We Have Come From and Being Excited about Where We Are Going
her 30 years as a vegan, Lisa had seen veganism expand far beyond the
fringes and be brought to a place at the table. She’d seen dairy-free
ice creams dominate whole freezers at the grocery store and vegan
cheeses finally begin to shed the shudder usually associated with them.
She’d seen families raising vegan children and those children grow up
to become articulate voices of compassion. She’d seen the rise of
entrepreneurs, filmmakers, artists, educators, attorneys, food
scientists, permaculturists, podcasters, chefs, designers and more –
people coming from all backgrounds and disciplines – bringing their
talents and skills to promoting vegan values and building on what was
here before. This was what she loved. This infused her with excitement
10 Questions: Vegan Rockstar with Farm Sanctuary's Gene Baur
Finding and rescuing a dying sheep named Hilda prompted Gene to co-found Farm Sanctuary
in 1986, and, with it, he became an inspiration for and trailblazer of
the farmed animal sanctuary movement. For this and more, Gene Baur is a vegan rockstar to know.
Why Sanctuaries Matter
a sanctuary, it takes a moment to notice that we are feeling something
different from our ordinary experience and that is when we notice in
comparison how ill-at-ease we are as vegans when we are not in such an
exceptional environment. There is no assault, nothing we need to move
on from, nothing we need to avert our eyes from seeing. All individuals
here have found a safe place to land. Our eyes can rest everywhere
without a painful reminder of the violence that is so normalized
10 Questions: Vegan Rockstar with Kristin Lajeunesse
With her innovative Will Travel For Vegan Food
project that began on her fifth veganniversary in August, 2011, Kristin
created the fantasy endeavor of so many wander-lusting herbivores: she
