From basic fairness to politics, economics, love and other aspects of being human, Think Like a Vegan invites the reader to set aside their preconceived notions about veganism, and to enter into an invigorating conversation about your daily ethical decisions.
This book is not just for vegans. Society’s systemic injustices are intimately interconnected, including the fight for racial justice, feminism, and ethical production, as are the threats we face together, from environmental collapse to global pandemics. Seeking a fair world for animals means we must also seek to reject and redress the injustices perpetrated against each other. These are not mutually exclusive goals, or mutually exclusive ideas.
Seeking to challenge, educate and illuminate, Think Like a Vegan draws threads between essential points of philosophical thought to help answer the fundamental ethical question: How should we act, and why?

Eva J. Charalambides discovered her voice while studying Radio and Television, writing for on-air and screen, and food blogging. Through her transition to veganism, thought pieces on animal advocacy were added to her curriculum vitae and the opportunity to help produce multi-city vegan events followed. She has lent her voice to non-profits, t-shirts and everything in-between, seldom passing opportunities to promote veganism. When she’s not writing, she says thousands of words through her photography business. Today, Eva can be found in rural Ontario building her first home with her husband, Matt, and their rescue rabbit, Libby.
