Times are very different right now. The coronavirus pandemic has forced millions of people all around the world to stay at their homes and has left us in a world where everything is uncertain. However, there’s a bright side to this: the world is hopefully going to be a much better place.
While it’s currently hard to plan your day and long-term plans, it’s a great time to start new projects. Here are our tips for getting through this pandemic as a vegan.
Embrace Vegan Cooking
Now’s the perfect opportunity to work on your cooking skills. There are lots of recipes you can try. Check out our Vegan Recipes page for some inspiration. We’d highly recommend trying Easy Vegan Ramen and the three delicious recipes that Vogue Paris recently shared.
Donate to an Animal Rights Charity
Animals need your help more than ever, and the best way you can help from your home is to donate to an animal rights organization/charity. There are lots of amazing organizations out there, including PETA, the Pamela Anderson Foundation, Animal Welfare Foundation, and the SPCA among many others.
Spend Time With Your Furry Friends or Foster an Animal
If you have pets, it’s important to dedicate lots of time to them. They make our lives so much better, so why not spend some time making them happy?
If you don’t have a pet, consider fostering one if you can. Lots of animals are being put down because they don’t have a place to stay. Every foster home counts!
Encourage Your Friends to Go Vegan
Now’s the best time to catch up with your friends, so why not encourage them to make a lifestyle change? You don’t have to force them to go full-on vegan, but at least encourage them to take baby steps. Maybe you can share you favourite vegan recipe with them to try? Or you can share some reasons why you decided to go vegan and follow a compassionate lifestyle.
Read a Book
There are lots of great books you can read on animal rights and the vegan lifestyle. Voices for Animal Liberation by Brittany Michelson is a great one to start with!
Advocate Veganism and Animal Rights
Everybody is on social media right now, so why not use this opportunity to share some animal rights truths or reasons for ditching animal products? You can post a PETA exposé or discuss the benefits of a vegan diet. Even posting a cute video of a farm animal can go a long way!
