„Veganism is a call against war, against violence, against murder – veganism is a demand for inclusion” – Allison J. van Tilborgh
Zdenka Kovačiček for dogs having difficulty being adopted
Singer Zdenka Kovačiček, the face of this year’s campaign, wants to draw additional attention to the so-called difficult types of dogs to adopt – those of older age, handicapped, black and traumatized. Apart from Vili, Čupavi and Danelly, who posed with her on posters, Zdenka also became close with Nora and Astor on the set. Their stories and visuals can be found here.
Igor Barberić counts saved lives
Igor Barberić is the author of the slogan “Instead of calories, I count saved lives“, who calls for a compassionate way of life through our posters. Aware of all the benefits of veganism, Igor pointed out that he is extremely proud of the fact that in 11 years of exclusive plant-based diet he managed to save the lives of as many as 4,015 animals. Read other positive numbers, follow his example and switch to a vegan diet.
Vegan ice creams cool us and our planet
We reminded that there are more and more vegan ice creams on the market, which are just as delicious, as well as healthier than those made with cow’s milk. Not only are they cooling us, but our planet as well. The dairy industry is a major consumer of freshwater due to milk and meat, therefore it contributes to environmental pollution and has been proven to affect global warming. Enjoy vegan ice creams that are meant for everyone.
Igor, Marie and Nataša don’t count calories
In our latest campaign, Igor Barberić was joined by food bloggers Marie Wasler and Nataša Rajčević. Marie became a vegan four years ago and that, as she points out, is the best decision she has made. Natasha, proud of her six years of veganism, believes she has no right to take anyone’s life. Igor believes that posters will not leave anyone indifferent and calls on everyone to stop counting calories and start counting lives, the amount of water and forest area that will be saved by transferring to a plant based diet and way of life.
