Lily Cole “strives for a sustainable lifestyle” so travels by train and is “95% vegan”
Model Lily Cole is now “95% vegan” in an effort to live a more sustainable life.
The 33-year-old is trying to eradicate her carbon footprint by avoiding cars and planes in favor of trains.
Lily spoke about her passion for the environment on BBC Radio 4 today, after adjusting her demanding life to make sure it was greener overall.
“In terms of actions, food is a main thing for me, it’s something that I can control. I eat mostly vegan, probably over 95%, ”she said.
“I tried to consume less and support more sustainable businesses.
“Probably the most important thing is a shift in mindset, pushing against the narrative that we have to buy more, do more and get out of a wasteful mindset.”
Since turning to a more sustainable lifestyle, Lily has been a keynote speaker at the Earthrise virtual summit in May this year.
She has also reduced her travel commitments in order to help him more.
“Traveling is probably the one I found the most difficult because my job requires me to travel a lot and if I’m honest I really love to travel,” admitted Lily.
“There are a lot of positives in terms of opening cultures to each other. I don’t think that with any of these things there is simple right or wrong.
