One of my all time favorite designs is back in sticker form! Liberation is love! It is a simple phrase that means so many things to so many people. To me it means that the ultimate expression of love is to respect the bodily autonomy of animals. Set them free and leave them in peace. πŸ“πŸ“πŸ“ Link to order in bio. Don't forget you can get 8% off all orders this week with code 8YEARS. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ #vegan #vegansticker #liberationislove

8 years ago Compassion Co moved from being a twinkle in my eye to a reality. I had been vegan for about 4 years and I wanted to find T shirts that creative original illustrations and represented veganism in a fun and somewhat snarky way. But just couldn't find anything out there that spoke to my very specific taste. I was also almost always disappointed to find that many vegan shirts being sold were made in sweatshops and with materials that were downright irresponsible for the environment. To me, that didn't seem like it aligned with veganism. So I decided that I might as well roll up my sleeves and create the shirts I was looking for.Β  I commissioned some friends to draw up my first couple designs, turning my horrible sketches into beautiful pieces of art, exhaustively researched production practices, and away we went! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š Eventually Compassion Co transitioned from a part time hobby to a full fledged life, inspiring me to move into a van and travel the country bringing my brand of band and tattoo inspired vegan shirts to vegfests nationwide. What you're looking at is the very first design we ever printed. A simple statement that was our flagship design for many years before that angry unicorn came along. I decided to bring it back in sticker form to commemorate 8 years in business. It's up on our website right now and for the next 2 weeks you can use code 8YEARS to save 8% off on all orders.

Great photo shoot today with @yogaanimalia behind the lens and @jess.shill @thesoulfulveganista @staypizzative and @lunarlaze in front. @brewinggoodcoffeeco offered up their location as home base. πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ I'm definitely someone who stubbornly feels like I can do everything on my own and that usually results in half assed photos done at the last minute. This time I reached out to friends for help and it came together beautifully. Friends are great and community is awesome y'all! Can't wait for everyone to see the photos!

When I went vegan in 2007 I was fat. In the 12 years since, I have remained fat. Unfortunately in a movement that claims to represent justice and a fight against oppression I still found that my body was subject to passive aggressive comments, ridicule, rude remarks and accusations that I must not be a real vegan. I was told that I shouldn't represent veganism because my body would turn others off from veganism. I've found many others who have shared these experiences. This is a movement that is largely unwelcoming and often hostile to fat people. 
On the flip side, some (I'm assuming) well meaning advocates think they can use mainstream fatphobia as a shortcut to achieve animal liberation by pushing veganism as a magical weight loss program. This has led to the general public thinking that a vegan cannot be fat. As if there is only one particular type of body that can represent justice and a fight against oppression.

My friends, all of these has created a state of immense confusion with the general public that is neither helpful to the animals we claim to be allies to, nor those of us who make up this movement. This is how we lose.
I got to a point where I was tired of trying to hide myself in a movement that wanted to reject me. I was tired of having to explain "yeah, I'm vegan, I know I know, I don't look like what you're expecting" and I was just plain tired of the lack of representation of a diversity of body sizes in vegan activism.

I wholeheartedly believe that a movement that does not embrace fat positivity is doomed to fail. What do I mean by fat positivity? I mean a movement that doesn't simply tolerates the existence of fat vegans (because fuck mere tolerance) but one that actively embraces us. A movement that collectively realizes that if we don't represent the diversity of human existence, we are doomed to fail. [Continued in comments]

Huge thanks to everyone who braved the heat (111 degrees whaaat? ☠) and came out to the 5th annual @compassionfest in CT last weekend. This event is special to me since CT is my home state. And although Im a nomadic van dweller these days, it will always be my home. Love seeing so many vegan and vegan-curious folks come out to support and explore veganism (including my parents for the first time πŸ’œ). Despite the heat, I had a great time and Im grateful this event exists! The beautiful little strawberry poptart was made by the wonderful @bunny_treats . Also, see those beautiful new shirt colors in the background? Theyre available at events now and online soon! πŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’œ#vegan #veganfood #whatveganseat #compassionco  #compassionfest
