    Alaina Brent

    Competitive Runner & Former Triathlete

    I am vegan in general because I believe it is the healthiest way to be and being a competitive runner, you are what you put in. I am strictly vegan however, because my morals will not allow me to be any other way.

    Alice Shopland

    Angel Food

    I’ve been vegan since 2004 and my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner! I’m very lucky that I run a vegan business, so my work life is completely in synch with my ethics. My intention is to make veganism more visible and more desirable, by providing delicious vegan options.

    Anita Prasad

    Official People Choice Ambassador for Miss United Nations Tourism 2012

    Being a vegan I feel happier, healthier and more energized: I lost weight and I gained a young looking complexion too. I like the fact that being on a vegan diet can decrease my risk of many chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease and I increase my life expectancy.

    Andrew Duncan

    Real Estate Blogger / Marketer / Coach

    I never took pleasure in the idea of eating other sentient beings but I always rationalised it as normal behaviour. We watched Earthlings. Nothing could have prepared us for something so heart-wrenching and moving.

    Carl Scott

    Animal Advocate

    For me Veganism is about living in a more compassionate and connected way every day. At least 3 times a day I can say, “No animal was harmed in the making of this food (or clothing, or whatever…..)”.

    Darcy Peacock

    Former AUSA President

    I was the first vegan president of the Auckland University Students Association. I was inspired to become vegan while doing my philosophy degree (majoring in ethics).

    Dominic Hoey

    Auckland Rapper and Poet

    Like a lot of people I grew up with I was first introduced to Veganism through punk and hardcore music. It immediately made perfect sense to me and I have been vegan for 22 years now (i’m old). i think the ethical, health and political benefits far out weigh the taste of meat pies.

    Dr John Livesey

    PHD

    I try to be vegan to help alleviate the exploitation and suffering of animals, to reduce my carbon footprint and other environmental impacts, and to eat a healthy diet. And with luck I may influence others to think similarly.

    Becoming a vegan brings so many benefits because not only do you stop supporting needless cruelty towards farmed animals, but also help their wild cousins by not accelerating the depletion of their environments caused by catastrophic farming practices.
