We are a small team that is Loving Being Vegan. And we know you are too. We are deeply passionate about being vegan. Just like you. We know how much vegans want to share the many benefits of being vegan so we have designed a range of statement t-shirts, hoodies and jumpers to help us do just that.
I love being vegan. I love being vegan in the same way I loved being an animal rights activist in my early-twenties! Too many years ago to mention that now though. I’d love to be doing that again but, I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t got the stomach for it these days. The photos and videos that do the rounds on social media reduce me to tears, they take over my headspace and leave me feeling utterly helpless at the mere thought of what goes on in the world. And there’s my daughters taking centre stage, my amazing other half to be with, work and caring for all the animals that have taken sanctuary in our home (averaging 12-15 at any one time!). You know how it is, Moma, so many balls to juggle. Lots of plates to keep spinning. But the activist is forever whispering always wanting to do more. So I have. Hello veganmoma.shop. A marketplace for vegans selling vegan lifestyle items, that are eco-friendly clothing (including t-shirts, hoodies and jumpers) and exclusive vegan ranges from independent vegan sellers.
Not just a place for vegans to hang out…I’ve been vegan for eight years and my nearest and dearest still ask me ‘what would you like for your birthday?’ or ‘what can I get you for Christmas (please)?!’. Despite the phenomenal changes I’ve seen since turning vegan, it’s obvious that so many still find vegans awkward to buy for. I’m to understand they worry they’ll get it wrong. So I decided to set up Vegan Moma for us vegans, yes, but to offer a save space to share with our loved ones. A place they can shop freely (for us!) without worry.
Talking of the awesome people I’m lucky to have in my life, I’d love to introduce you to some of my Vegan Moma team…It was a really close friend of mine that took my vision for Vegan Moma and sprinkled magic glitter dust all over it creating the Exclusive Vegan Moma Collection – a positive clothing and accessory range that is designed to help us remember the important things in life. The Exclusive Vegan Moma is a little reminder for each of us of the difference we make. No matter how small it may be sometimes, it all makes a difference. I’m also painfully aware that, despite our best intentions, veganism has a bad rep with some. Because of our desire to help share the vegan love, we can sometimes can across a little preachy. A really close friend of mine chooses to describe her lifestyle choice as ‘plant-based’ as opposed to ‘vegan’ for this very reason. I really understood what she was saying. GO VEGAN! EAT MORE PLANTS! are just two examples of how we inadvertently bark (pun intended) orders to total strangers! The Exclusive Vegan Moma range is about taking that outwardly focused passion and turning it upon ourselves so that we’re sharing our personal experience of being vegan subtly with our immediate world through t-shirts, vests, hoodies, jumpers and accessories.
I’m collaborating with some special family and friends to bring other exclusive ranges to Vegan Moma too. I couldn’t be prouder to offer these products lovingly handmade and created by them for us lucky, lucky lot. Vegan candles and vegan canvas prints are available. This is very exciting! I hope you think so too.
