5 Vegan Influencers We’re Obsessed With

Being 100% vegan has been a core value of ours since day one of Pixie Mood. From 2010, our founders Kelvin Ho and Chloe Ho were adamant about creating handbags that did not harm animals by only designing with vegan materials that are completely cruelty-free.
Not everyone’s vegan journey begins like this, though. Usually, veganism refers to the way of life that involves choosing alternatives to animal products. This could include anything from your diet to your clothing choices, by ensuring that they do not contain or harm any animals.
Going vegan can be a gratifying experience, as well as one that can begin gradually. You could start your vegan journey by attempting Meatless Mondays, a movement that has helped people cut back on meat consumption and make healthier decisions from the beginning of every week. Making more sustainable and cruelty-free choices in your wardrobe is also a great place to start, like swapping out your leather bag for a vegan leather alternative. Every decision, no matter how small, contributes to the conservation of our plant and the animals that inhabit it.
Another way to transition to the vegan lifestyle could be to find like-minded people who can help inspire and encourage you to do the same. This can motivate you to stay on track and help guide you through this exciting experience with an insightful community to back you up.
With that in mind, we have compiled a list of 5 vegan influencers who inspire us (and we know will inspire you too!) to check out a more thoughtful and vegan way of life.
