I’m Jade, a vegan blogger and animal advocate. I live in London with my husband and our 3 dogs: Kitty, Amicii street dog rescue Buddy, Nana’s Haven meat-trade rescue Lilly (and often a selection of foster animals too, like Willow the sheep).
I started Jade Green Vegan back in May 2014 to show how fun and easy it can be to live a kinder life.
Creating vegan travel content brings me so much happiness, as I know many of my readers worry about how you will maintain your compassionate lifestyle whilst visiting new places. I’m so happy to be able to share the best hotels, resorts & local restaurant finds across the globe both with you to make travelling stress-free.
My Vegan Story ▽▼▽▼▽
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 to a 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 couldn’t imagine going back!
In December 2015, I founded the Jade Green Vegan compassionate clothing line. After 5 incredible years, I closed my clothing line and it brings me so much joy to see people still out in the world spreading kindness in my designs.
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, I hope you find this blog helpful and you are always welcome to reach out through my contact form or on social media.
