I am somewhat of a movie addict, and I think if I had more spare time, I would spend a lot more time doing exactly that! Binge-watching old favorites!
And please don’t tell me the chilly weather combined with a warm cozy house that smells like home-made treats pre-holiday time doesn’t set you in the perfect mood to grab a blanket, sink into a beanie bag and watch away…
Well, why not use the mood to spread some vegan love?
You can gather family and friends to spread some awareness, or, if they are not up to it – use these suggestions to get further inspired about the choices you’ve made yourself!
