When I became vegan seven months ago I met a lot more resistance than what I experience now. Coming back home to Geneva I have been nervous about telling my friends that this previous carnivore has transitioned happily to the herbivore life. I had filmed a bit of a rant about my thoughts on celebrities becoming vegan available here.
Surprisingly the complete opposite met me on the banks of the lake. At least three of my friends have told me that they’re on their own journey towards veganism, while almost every other person has proudly told me how much less meat they eat now.
This honestly should not come as a shock to me, considering that veganism is one of the fastest growing movements in the world. It has touched the hearts of any environmentalist, animal lovers and health enthusiasts. With the amount of information available right at our finger tips, the constant stream of documentaries on netflix and vegan products booming in our supermarkets : its not hard to imagine that the general public has to be joining the movement.
If you are still unsure about what the fuss is about here is a list of awesome resources you should check out. Trust me. Its worth it.
