Changing Our Traditions
Welcome back listeners! In our seventh episode of ItAllVeganWithFriends we (Jay, Lindsey, Sam, Becks and Olivia) return for the first episode of 2019 after a short Christmas break. Together we will share with you our thoughts on Traditions. From celebrating Christmas, Easter and Valentines Day to preparations for Weddings, birthdays and pancake day.
We will ask the questions: Is it time to change our traditions and if so how can we make them vegan and encourage others to make the same changes? Do new traditions like Veganuary work and have our old traditions passed their sell-by date? Do our current traditions hold us back from moving forward?
“we can’t plead ignorance, only indifference. Those alive today are generations that came to know better. We have the burden and the opportunity of living in the moment when the critique of factory farming broke into the popular consciousness. We are the ones of whom it will be fairly asked, What did you do when you learned the truth about eating animals?"
