VEGAN BUSINESS TRIBE PODCAST
With David Pannell
We’re all familiar with the slogan ‘why love one type of animal but eat another?’ but Molly Elwood decided to take that one step further and launch a website and social media page that mimicked family-owned meat farms to highlight their hypocrisy.
Lisa was overjoyed to be asked to open our member Samantha’s new vegan knitwear shop, Clever Cotton. See the photos from the ribbon-cutting ceremony here and see if you can spot special guest Tom Baker!
Some people start a business, other people launch a mission. Lisa talks to Geraldine Starke about how she is helping dairy farmers convert to making plant-based milk – while at the same time changing their farms into sanctuaries so that their animals can live out their natural lives.
Maybe you’re finding it hard to block out some time to do a job. Or maybe you work on your own and want some other friendly vegans in the background while you work! Our new Make It Happen co-working sessions provide you with a focused, virtual workspace on Zoom with other Vegan Business Tribe members holding you to account.
‘Vegan’ is not just an industry sector, it’s a movement – and we know that we can achieve more when we work together. There are lots of ways you can collaborate with other vegan businesses to create a bigger audience for both of you – and sometimes, a bigger mission.
Can you take the skills you already have and use them to align your vegan passion with how you make a living? Damian from Short Stop Video shares how a significant health scare led to him reconsider the direction of his business. Read how Damian transitioned from being a standard videographer to making films for companies who want to change the world!
Lisa and David will be at Vegan Camp Out this weekend – and if you are there too we would love you to meet up with us for breakfast on Saturday morning! Includes a special Vegan Business Tribe discount from One Planet Pizza.
Louis Sandford recently made the news when he took to the street wearing a simple cardboard sign to promote his vegan greetings card company. What started out as a bit of budget promotion escalated into a viral social campaign and an interview on his local BBC radio station. David talks to Louis to find out what impact the stunt had on his business.
