Four generations of experience in the footwear sector: Nicola Masolini (RE-BORN; IT)

Helping others to see and appreciate the opportunities and options of a sustainable way of living: Anne and Gary Moore (Wagtail Design; FI)

“Personally we like crisis, it builds and brings out strengths that most don’t even know they have. There is a very appropriate saying that I have used as long as I can remember: “If you care enough, you will find a way, if not, you will find an excuse.” You, and you alone are responsible for you; find your way out of crisis.”

Inspiring us to become better: HEEL Athens Lab (GR)

“The most important and powerful act, we believe, is our everyday choices. We try to live by our expectations every day trying to become better and we hope that this will inspire others to try it as well.”  

Promoting reducing, reusing and recycling: Annika Hentrich (BicicloLab; DE/IT)

“Every item we buy has a past and a future, and therefore an impact on people and nature. We should inform ourselves about its origin and have an awareness of what happens to this product when we get rid of it.”

Drum beat: welcome to join the Tallinn Vegan Fair 2019 – come and say “Hello”!

Welcome to say “Hello”, and ask questions about veganism!

Today I am taking over the official Instagram account of Estonian Vegan Society.

First there was a DIY cookie “save the day” recipe (in Estonian and English). Now something else: a short contemplation about the problematics of an upcoming exhibition that focuses on contemporary fashion from Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

Using arts and crafts for improving position of oppressed animals: Marita Tanninen (Vegan Vortex; FI)

“Every person has a key to change the world. I believe spreading the knowledge about animal rights is one thing that can make a big influence, and I think we are heading to more cruelty-free world all the time. If and when we are aware of these things, we can also demand improvements to be written in our laws. For example, many countries have banned fur farming lately. We just have to fight against the system.”

A slow fashion enthusiast: Janita (Annie Eleanoora; FI)

“Buy less, but better! The biggest thing with sustainable development is that we should reduce our consumption.”

Pointing out social injustices and alternatives: Alex (roots of compassion; DE)

“For me being active doesn’t necessarily mean torching slaughterhouses or liberating animals, even though these methods can be absolutely appropriate. The main form of activism we engage in as a collective is education, through books, blog entries, messages on stickers, patches and T-shirts. We financially support projects that have a more direct and militant approach (e.g. the occupiers of the Hambacher Forest in Germany) and write about their actions because in our opinion different forms of activism have to go hand in hand if we want to have an impact.

As a long-time activist, whom I once met at the Animal Rights Gathering, put it: “You are not the movement, you are part of the movement.” I would like to add: “Take care of others and fight for their rights, but also take care of yourself.””

Found a treasure – a bag made by Alchemy Goods (US)

“Alchemy Goods is an eco-friendly, B-Corp certified bag and accessory brand with headquarters in Boulder, CO and manufacturing in Seattle, WA. Our bags and accessories are made by using a process called upcycling.”

Giving voice to a vegan community through graphical messages: Jacky Wasserman (US)

“As a vegan seeing how the movement and community has grown over the past 5 years has been so inspiring. I love hearing from friends that want my advice to go vegan because they saw a documentary or heard about how much the environment is affected or they love animals too much. Helping people transition and just being me without really doing anything but leading by example has been the most effective thing I think.
As an entrepreneur, creating a community of badass women boss babes that collaborate and support each other has been so rewarding. Cultivating and creating relationships with other business owners is a must. We all can relate!”
