Arnold Schwarzenegger posted the other day that he was going to spend this lockdown at home (with his mini horse, dog and donkey!) eating vegan food. We say that’s a very good plan. Living a mostly vegan lifestyle, like he does, never made more sense than now; and not just for the sake of the animals and the environment. Right now, many are also pointing to the fact that eating animals is what led us into this mess in the first place, as these types of diseases (corona viruses) transmit from animals to humans…
Now, we don’t want to get political about it, but here’s an idea: Why not spend this time of solitude and reflection to discover some great new products that are not only vegan, but 100% chic? We’ve listed some favorites — have your pick!
