December is the time when we re-evaluate our choices and start to make plans to improve ourselves for the new year.  The new year feels like a fresh start, a great opportunity to quit bad habits and start living a healthier, more compassionate, environmentally friendly way of life. The best way to achieve all these is to go vegetarian or vegan.

Fun, educational and the chance to win.

Their new childrens book, “The Six Foot Rats”, is a gentle educational story. The book aims to introduce children to the important, yet sensitive issue of animal testing in a light and engaging manner. Whilst this topic is a serious and often upsetting one, The Six-Foot Rats instead focuses on the fundamental truth (stressing the FUN), as discovered by the lab rats in the book: animals are not humans and it is strange and bizarre to compare the two.

It can be purchased from our online shop:
