A ceramic artist trying to improve the world via mugs with a message: Laura Grainger (UK)

“All art is political. As it is influenced by people living under political systems.”

Bridging art to the existential threat of atmospheric carbon overload: Allegra Searle-LeBel (US)

“Resisting consumerism, which is especially hard when we’re told that the way we can make anything better is by buying something.”  

Doing what they love and selling vegan products that they actually care for: Eeva and Madis (RoheValik; EE)

“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.”

Showing that every non-human animal is an individual with a unique personality: Maria Tiqwah (NL)

“Let us be, first and above all, kind”

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.”

Shop ´til you drop but keep it cruelty free!: Helen Tintse (Veganshop; EE)

“I admire and respect everyone who has found possibilities to support veganism, environmental protection and equality. There are many different people, some in the forefront, some not. 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.”  

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.”

Helping other human animals to see non-human animals from new perspectives: Rosina Espig (DE)

“Reconnect with yourself. Remember who you really are. Get aware of your own feelings and your impact in this world. Imagine the hard questions too. Follow your heart. Be brave enough to change the perspective and look into this world with the view of somone else. We can see the full picture only if we are able to see all the different perspectives and all the colours between black and white.”

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.
