Greetings, my name is Krishna. I’ve been vegan for 7 years after attending VegfestUK in 2012. I learnt about veganism from my mother who is now 29 years vegan but it wasn’t until I watched Earthlings in 2007 that I felt compelled to spread the awareness within my own network of family, friends and in the workplace. Although not 100% vegan back in 2007, I stopped purchasing animal derived products for fashion and accessories. I believe veganism fits with the core fundamentals of Hinduism including its very association with dairy. An association, which today is sadly completely misunderstood and corrupted.
