TELL US YOUR STORY
This is where we want to showcase stories from other people who, like us, have transitioned to a plant based diet and been fascinated by one or more of the consequences of doing so. Did your health improve as a result of your change? Did your transition influence your family / friends / colleagues to also make changes to their diet? Did it influence the work you now do? Did you experience a completely unseen outcome of going vegan / plant based? Stories like this are remarkable and we want to hear about them!
Find out how to share your story.

HOW TO SHARE YOUR STORY
We invite you to get in touch with us to tell us your story either in written form or as a video interview with us. We will regularly feature a new story in our blog with a link to it on this page. We will also share it across our social media platforms if you are happy for us to do so. Alternatively, you can request that your story be made available to members only. We know that some of these accounts can involve personal information and you might prefer to limit the audience for your story to members who may benefit from reading what you have to say.
There is no prescribed length for a written piece but for a rough guide, maybe take a look at Graham’s story. We reserve the right to edit your story eg to make it shorter where we feel it is a little too long, to amend any obvious errors or to examine any factual information that you may include (please include references if you do this). We will also ask you for a photograph, feel free to send two or three so that we can choose the one we feel best represents your story, or you. A video interview will be approximately half an hour and we will discuss the nature of the questions with you before the recording date.
You can contact us via email, the chat on this website or via any of our social media buttons, but written submissions should be sent via email to the address provided by clicking the contact button directly below.
