Jade Green Vegan Compassionate Accessories
I’m Jade, a 24 year-old vegan and animal lover. I live in London with my mum, boyfriend and four dogs (yes, you read that right, four dogs (!!!) #crazydoglady). I started Jade Green Vegan in May 2014 to show how fun and easy it can be to live a kind life. Over the past couple of years this blog has expanded into a YouTube channel and most recently into a compassionate clothing and accessories line.
I have loved animals my whole life, so when at 3 years old I found out that chicken came from a chicken (child genius huh?) I decided to become a vegetarian. In spring 2014 I began to transition into the vegan lifestyle after becoming aware of the realities of the dairy and egg industries. I’d initially planned to phase all animal products out gradually, but after eating vegan for a couple of weeks, I fell in love with the diet and couldn’t imagine going back!
I know going vegan can seem like a daunting step to a lot of people, especially when you feel like you’re going through it alone – prior to going vegan I knew zero vegans in real life, so I definitely know what that feels like! So, for anyone who is a new vegan, vegetarian or maybe just curious about the lifestyle, there is no need to worry – it really can be fun and easy to live a compassionate lifestyle.
