The Aline Ploeg talk on veganism shares her personal story with becoming a vegetarian and eventually vegan. The animal rights activist also works as a graphic designer with her own firm, Groenergras. Based in the Netherlands, the speaker regularly protests the abuse of animals, including meat consumption, animal testing and the fur industry. As described in the Aline Ploeg talk, she became a vegan and activist at the age of 16.
