    Hello everyone!

    My name is Tom - I was vegetarian for 2 years and then about 6 months ago I transformed into a vegan lifestyle.

    I live in the United Kingdom - currently base myself in Buckinghamshire.

    Since going vegan I found that my motivations weren't just about the animals, but also for the environment. It's really changed my life - and for the better!

    I recently had to put myself on long-term leave from my regular full-time job in the international freight industry due to suddenly going deaf in one ear.
    Because of this I, only a week ago, decided I was going to do something productive with my time instead of sitting around idly.

    I noticed that finding vegan clothing made ethically, with organic materials and powered by green energy was basically impossible... so I just finished launching my vegan apparel brand 'Powered By Plants'. It's been a great motivator for me and hopefully I can make something of it. I won't post a link to my online store or Instagram unless someone asks for it here.

    A bit more about me... single man, going through a divorce, suicide survivor, surfer, animal lover, gin lover.

    Feel free to ask me any questions, and I look forward to getting to know you all soon. :)

    Peace and love,

    Tom
