Supermarket Sweep – Tesco’s New Vegan Range

So I don't normally blog about supermarkets because, well, I just think there are probably more interesting things in life.

F.R.I.E.N.D Farm Sanctuary Update

Last summer, I visited one of my local sanctuaries - 'F.R.I.E.N.D' in Kent, England. I was lucky enough to have a tour with owner Mark, who runs the sanctuary with his partner, Marion.
