‘Earthling Ed’ has been smashing it so far this year with his e-book jam packed with information on how to answer questions about Veganism. He is a great example on how to be a peaceful, kind and thoughtful activist and advocate for a Vegan World. I’d say this is properly one of the best vegan instagram accounts to follow for learning how to be a better activist and how best to communicate the message of Veganism. Ed is doing tonnes of amazing projects this year and travels all over the UK educating and inspiring.
Other inspirational activists that deserve a follow…

Since starting a vegetarian then vegan diet, my cooking skills have grown so much and I try so many delicious recipes out with friends and family. The best vegan instagram accounts always include food for SURE. What better way to show how amazing and delicious a cruelty free diet can be than cooking up some recipes from this lot…

There are loads of Hollywood stars, athletes and boss babes who are raving about their love of a vegan lifestyle. It’s great to see and I love the coverage the movement it getting through these new advocates. The newest member of the Vegan crew is Will.i.am, honestly he is so so funny shouting “V-Gang” on all his insta stories at the moment – long may it last! You HAVE to give him a follow if you don’t already!
Alicia Silverstone has a great wellness blog which I would recommend checking out, cute articles, great health tips and stories about a vegan lifestyle.
Look at this beautiful precious baby! ? I could never eat you sweet one. Factory cows are artificially impregnated in order for their bodies to produce milk. Calves of dairy cows are separated from their mothers less than 24 hours after birth! While the mothers are taken away to be abused for their fresh supply of milk, their babies are either raised to eventually replace their mommas as dairy cows (if it's a female) or taken away to be slaughtered for veal (if it's a male). They cry in agony for their babies! Can you imagine being separated from your child almost immediately after they're born? Please consider this next time you are thinking of purchasing dairy. There are so many fabulous alternatives available that are kind to your body, kind to our planet and animals, and taste just as delicious! ?: @danlemkus
