Today is the VERY FIRST DAY I start working at my own vegan business full time, and I owe it all to /r/vegan

Not long ago I swore I would only eat free range meat and eggs but said I’d never stop eating meat.

Then I went pescetarian, but I said I’d never go vegetarian.

Then I went vegetarian, but I said I’d never go vegan.

Then I went vegan, but I said I’d never be an activist.

Then yesterday I quit my job as a graphic designer to work on my own vegan activist apparel business full-time.

And tomorrow I’ll be at Norfolk Animal Save’s slaughterhouse vigil.

I feel like now I’m the person I always should have been.

Thanks guys, for all the support you’ve given me at [Anticarnist](http://www.anticarnist.com). From the times when I just thought /r/vegetarian and /r/vegetarianism weren’t doing enough and this sub wasn’t afraid to take on ANY issue. – To when so many of you offered so much encouragement to do something with my artwork. This is most definitely the best sub on reddit!

    Congratulations!! Your designs are really well done and I’ve browsed through the shirts many times wanting to order one. Do you think you might offer smaller women’s sizes in the future? – From a small and short person 🙂

    Best of luck…. I’d definitely be a customer….

    One request – business friendly attire… I work in corporate, am a secret vegan, and it’s hard as hell to find clothes that are fair trade, vegan friendly, comfortably and don’t make me look like I live in a tree in Washington state and eat bark all day.

    So… what’s the next thing you’re saying you won’t do? 😉

    Are your fabrics fair-trade? And can you certify that they are not made by sweatshop workers?

    I’d love to purchase one in the future, but as an ethical vegan I don’t purchase first-hand clothing that exploits human animals, as well as non-human animals.

    My girlfriend got us two of your t-shirts and we’re in love. Thank you so much for making that possible, and best of luck with the business!

    Congratulations!! I’m starting my own vegan business too now 🙂 an ecommerce website for fashion and lifestyle. My passions in life are veganism and close 2nds are fashion and business!! I figured, may as well combine them all 🙂 I hope I can quit my job too in 1 year 🙂

    Also hello down vote fairy! I’m sorry you’re so unhappy with who you are that you feel the need to spread hate instead of love. I really recommend finding a hobby that gets you outside and gives you a way to channel your anger and self hatred in some other way than downvoting happy vegan people celebrating a small for mankind, big for this person kind of victory.

    The “Anticarnist” shirt design reminds me of the Napalm Death logo. Fan?

    Congratulations! I wear your tanktops with pride 😀

    Edit to add: Any chance there’s a ‘Here with us’ tanktop coming soon? I really prefer tanktops over tshirts ^^’

    Huge congrats to you. As someone also trying to start a business, I know how hard it is to slog through the day job dreaming of being able to work on your passion 100%. It’s inspiring to see how far you’ve come!

    Fuck yeah man I’m wearing one of your shirts now and went to my first chicken rescue last weekend.

    Being vegan is the future man I’m glad you are helping others embrace it.

    These are probably my favorite vegan clothing designs I have ever seen. Too bad Shipping to Canada is so freaking expensive. I may pull the trigger on a couple shirts regardless. Good luck!!!!

    32.90+ 9.87 Shipping for a tshirt. God damn Canadian dollar.

    If you made the “not your body, not your life, not your choice” tank without the cross of St. Peter on the cows head I’d buy that in a heartbeat. I love it so much!

    I work on a US military base/work out on a US military base and they’re quite Christian.

    Wooo! Congratulations! So happy to see this! I had just come to find you on Etsy literally two days ago while looking for vegan graphics shirts. I love your designs! I hadn’t bought any yet as I hadn’t seen any female size/cut shirts. I definitely will be one of your customers soon!

  28. RokyMoon

    July 19, 2017 at 4:06 am

    Wow!! Amazing! I ordered my partner a shirt from you last year!! She loves it! Btw, do you wholesale?

  29. karp505

    July 19, 2017 at 4:06 am

    Congrats! I’ve always wished I could pull off one of your shirts, but I’m so bad at having those conversations 🙁

    Happy to hear this 😀 I used to be omni and never thought I would cut any animal products out. Factory farming videos made me rethink that. And then cutting animal products out for a week made me feel SO much healthier than when I ate meat. I was recently prompted to not consume animal products anymore and I won’t ever go back.

    I’m proud of you for basing your life around your values 😀 I too hope to one day to start a vertical farm, or vegan restaurant or something of the sort. A way to help heal the community that truly affects everyone. Only problem is that that is very expensive and I’m young! So I have to play the stupid game of working a job for a consumer-hungry company for now :/

    That is so cool! I’m an illustrator and i’ve been meaning to do something for the vegan community with my skills but had no idea where to start. What you’re doing is very inspiring 🙂

    You should say you’re never going to be an astronaut. In all seriousness you are my hero. I want to work for the vegan movement full time one day. You give inspiration to people like me.

    There was a thug kitchen shirt that I missed out on regarding the answer to “but where do you get your protein?” You should make one similar.

    Was thinking any business that does not deal with food could be a vegan business. Good luck either way
