A vegan teacher has been named a ‘Veg-o-meter’ for her efforts to spread veganism.
‘Vegan teacher’ Laila Parek was appointed by a student union in her school to teach ‘vegan’ in his class.
The teacher has previously been a vegan activist and she has become a vegan as well as a ‘vegetarian activist’ on social media.
‘The vegan teacher’ was chosen for her work at a school in a small town in South Africa, where she is a vegan.
‘It’s a great honour to be recognised as such a strong voice in the vegan community and we’re so proud that she has been chosen,’ she told the BBC.
Ms Pareg said the school had a ‘very positive and inspiring’ attitude to vegans.
‘We’ve never had an issue, so we were very hopeful when we first came to see the school.
‘This is the first time we’ve had a vegan teacher in our school.
I think this is going to be the start of a big change.’
I think we’re going to see a whole new attitude towards veganism.’
‘I don’t think I’ll ever have the same relationship with animals again,’ she said.
Ms Tufo said she wanted to give back to her community by spreading the word about the ‘good life’.
‘I’m not a vegan, but I do love animals and I want to help spread vegan values to the community, she said, according to BBC.
‘I do have a personal problem with animal cruelty and I would like to bring awareness to the problem and I think it would be a wonderful thing for the whole community to know about.’
Ms Parenk said she would be open to learning more about veganism, and she hoped that the accolade would be the first step in promoting a change in the culture.
‘What I am very excited about is that it is a really positive step, that we’re not alone in our fight for a vegan lifestyle,’ she added.
