“We can't save all the animals who need it, but we can let the ones that we have, be ambassadors for their species.”
Laura Laura, an UK-based writivist (writer + artist), has a website FemVegArt that is all about promoting feminism/gender equality and veganism/anti-speciesism. Her products are for people who want to raise awareness and proudly express their values in small things that can have great meaning. Her approach is intersectional, which means that she is aware of … Continue reading It’s every adult’s responsibility to do their bit to make the world a better place for everyone: Laura (FemVegArt; UK)
“They [cats — D the Vegan Feminist] are not here for our pleasure and enjoyment. You would respect a humans personal space and physical boundary if they shared it with you. In my opinion it is no different for cats.”
“To me, feminism is the basic idea that everyone should be treated equally: women, men, trans, non-binary, racialized people, sex workers, the elderly, people with disabilities, … I see it as a part of a wider struggle against cisheteropatriarchy.”
"I don’t want to cause increase in the world’s waste load but rather reduce it with my choise of using recycled materials. For the brand, waste is a treasure!"

“All art is political. As it is influenced by people living under political systems.”
“Resisting consumerism, which is especially hard when we’re told that the way we can make anything better is by buying something.”
“Our store is fair, well sourced and priced, and it’s a place where one can go and buy whatever one wants knowing that one is getting a fair deal! There is no tricking anyone.”
“Let us be, first and above all, kind”
“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.”

Some can write, some can blog, some creates recipes, some design, some takes photos, some consults, etc. They all help our world to become a better place. Similarly to every person who cares and who makes reasoned choices.”
“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.”

“Sort your trash, take your own bag to a grocery store, take your own cup to a coffee shop, don’t throw trash around and reuse things as much as you can. Those would be the basics. Also, many new sustainable brands are coming out, but with them many greenwashing brands are coming along too. You should research the brand to know if it really is what it claims to be. And the reason would be to keep the business going while not being too harmful to our planet. Not everything we as species do is bad, we just need to manage our processes better.”
