Animal Welfare Activist, Graphic Designer
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.
The speaker's personal philosophy of giving a voice to creatures who are not able to speak for themselves is apparent. Despite having a career as a graphic designer, her clear passion is promoting the welfare of animals, from bunny rabbits and dogs to farm animals like pigs.
