How long have you been and why are you a vegan or interested in becoming a vegan?

Been vegetarian (sans dairy except eggs) for about a year and a half and a vegan for two months now. I'm vegan because the impact raising animals commercially is more detrimental to the Earth than commercially growing plants. I also believe in not wasting, since plants and animals are nearly equal in the sense that they both come from Earth and are being used by humans in ways that cause harm to the environment. Everyday I try to be more aware of the things I buy, use and throw away. I do not preach my values nor do I expect someone to preach their values at me in a threatening manner.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Read, knit, take walks, go to the gym, ride my bike, run, watch movies, cook/make food, read cookbooks, search for things to do in Portland via the internet.


My name is Heather. I moved to NE Portland from Chicago in September 2013. I work at home so I need to get out more and meet people! I enjoy reading, riding my bike, going to the gym, knitting, cooking, watching movies, playing games/puzzles, etc.
