Today's guest, Shabari Monica Das has been vegan for 25 years!! Take that, people who think vegans are weak and nutrient deficient! 😉
From her bio: Shabari is the Founder and Manager of World Vegan Market, Leader of the London Vegan Business Network, Founder and Owner of Shabari’s Snack Shack, and Founder and Owner of EthiGreen which is launching soon! She has written a research paper called ‘Green Companies or Green Con-panies: Are Companies Really Green, or Are They Pretending to Be?’ - Published in Business and Society Review, which is a prestigious academic journal.
In the past, Shabari was General Secretary/Board Member of the European Vegetarian Union for 8 years and Council Member/European Liaison Officer for the International Vegetarian Union for 4 years. Most of the board members and council members were also vegan. Shabari’s roles involved international travel meeting with delegates from vegetarian/vegan/animal rights organisations in Europe and USA to discuss how to push forward the movement. All the food provided at the events was vegan.
Shabari has a wealth of knowledge about veganism, green issues, and natural/chemical-free living. She is driven by justice and firmly believes in transparency, fairness, equity and the rights of individuals, groups, and animals. If you’re not already impressed by this, wait until you hear this interview. Shabari isn’t just incredibly knowledgable, she’s warm, inviting, and such a joy to interact with.
In this episode we cover Shabari's vegan journey, her multiple business, the London Vegan Network, the connection between veganism and spirituality, and so much more. Shabari also shares how she likes to spice up her homemade hummus.
