Bah! Pic snaffled from The Discerning Brute website.
An interesting read.
Well, this is interesting. I’ve been away from my blog for too long and don’t know how to work anything anymore. I just managed to delete my written post and publish a picture with no context.
Edited to include: Take 2.
In the time I’ve been away I’ve really been thinking about what living ethically and enjoyably means to me and have found that “vegan” just doesn’t cover it as much as I used to think it did. Being vegan is a component of it.
To explain, when I buy products, for example, I’m not just looking to tick the vegan box, I want it to be (in no particular order and where relevant) palm oil free, fair trade, organic, non-GMO, non-monocrop, non-virgin forest, recycled, recyclable, reused, reusable, low carbon footprint, minimal/no plastic, supporting local or o/s independent businesses/people, minimal processing, minimal ingredients, healthy, necessary. There are probably more that I’ve forgotten but I think you catch my drift.
I realise that I can’t tick each box in every purchase, and I have a long way to go with getting the basics right on this, but while I’m working on it, I’d love an all-encompassing name to describe this approach. Does anyone know if one exists and I’m just too tired to think of it? If not, can we make one up?
