The Rise of Veganism
Up until just a few years ago Veganism was believed to belong to a niche group of people who were viewed by non-vegans as tree-huggers, thin, weak-bodied hippies who lived on a diet of “rabbit food”. However, that is no longer the case as veganism is growing massively around the world and has catapulted into the mainstream in the past 18 months. Bodybuilders and athletes such as Patrik Baboumian, Barny du Plessis, Josie du Plessis, Fiona Oakes, Tim Shieff, Torre Read More
The absolutely brilliant 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood The Handmaids Tale has been adapted by Hulu into a critically acclaimed and multiple award winning TV series of the same title.
The Handmaids Tale depicts human females being enslaved and kept like prisoners – just as farm animals really are! Just like dairy cows, these human fertile women are also raped and exploited for their reproductive systems.
I was so eager to view The Handmaids Tale that I ordered series 1 on DVD from HMV to arrive with me on UK release day back in March 2017 – not something I would normally do.
Atwood drew on the Book of Genesis Chapter Read More

It’s more of a fly-on-the-wall documentary, which explains and documents very informatively the benefits of fasting, detoxing, following a plant-based diet and using meditation and holistic therapies for optimal health & wellbeing.
It was aired originally on BBC 2 and each episode got around Read More

Growing up in the late 1990’s/ early 2000’s I had never heard of veganism or even knew it was a “thing”…to be honest I had never particularly heard much about vegetarianism either! There was nowhere near as much mainstream talk, publicity, activism, adverts or information then as there has been over the past few years.
Animal Lover – Animal Eater!?
As a kid I would visit country parks and zoo’s while eating chicken nuggets and cheese sandwiches while never making any sort of connection between the animals I was visiting and the dead ones I was eating. However, I always claimed to be an animal lover, not just Read More
When people find out I am vegan, I am often met with the same kind of responses. Many people like to explain to me how they don’t eat a lot of meat, or they only eat fish, or only eat chicken. Also, just for the record people who claim to be “vegetarian” and say that they “only” eat chickens are NOT vegetarians; they ARE meat eaters.
I get a sense that often when meat eaters meet vegans they are reminded of the violence they are part of on a daily basis. The vegan acts like a mirror reflecting back to them that they eat the flesh of innocent and voiceless Read More

I have a big announcement everyone. Apologies for the long post, but I’m really making a big change in my life. Please read the whole thing.
I’ve decided not only to stop being an activist, but also that being vegan isn’t for me. As a logical, compassionate person, I can’t condone veganism anymore.
I’ve been educating myself and have realised something. An industry which breeds, confines, exploits and prematurely kills at least 56 billion sentient land animals (and countless marine animals) every year; is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution and habitat destruction (and many more); and offers products which directly promote our biggest Read More

At Bohemian Hippy, we understand how important it is to wear your message about veganism and animal rights, so we created a shop where you can find not-for-profit ethical clothing with full vegan ink.
Being vegan is a way of life and, as the good people over at Veganuary say, there are many reasons why people should go vegan in 2018. A way of living with compassion Read More
Capitalism, as we know it, is dying. We are coming to an end of certain presumptions and thought patterns that we have so far taken as normality and acceptable – industrial agriculture is the obvious example.
I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation. No! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell Read More
