Conor Haines - Web Content Editor
What I do
As web content editor, my role is to help build, maintain, and increase visibility for Viva!'s websites and thereby increase the move towards veganism in the UK.
Working at Viva!
Veganism is the best way that we as individuals can reduce our impact on the environment, and help to end animal suffering. To work for an organisation which shares my beliefs and is helping to pave the way for a kinder and more ethical planet is an incredible opportunity.
I went vegan because…
I opened my eyes to the cruel truth of the animal agriculture industry as well as its detrimental impact on the environment. Cowspiracy was the catalyst that triggered my 'I need to go vegan' moment, and watching Earthlings shortly after only justified my decision - as a self proclaimed animal lover, I simply could not continue to contribute to the atrocities that these innocent, sentient beings are forced to endure on a daily basis. Ultimately, veganism is the future and I want to be on the right side of history.
My favourite veg…
The humble potato. Mashed. With gravy... and Linda McCartney's sausages.
