Today we’re talking to Greg Willybiro, a man who once never imagined going vegan. However since making the switch he’s been inspired to help others, not only see veganism for themselves, but to also think about how every one of us can do something to collectively make the world a better place. He is fulfilling his mission with the creation of Turfue Straws, a company that provides a solution to the waste that plastic straws create in our environment.
- Hear him explain the biases that prevented him from making the transition to a vegan lifestyle and how he was able to overcome them.
- See how his family and friends initially reacted to his decision to become vegan and what he did to help them gain a better understanding. Also find out what made his once skeptical father take on a 30-day vegan challenge.
