Celebrating being vegan for 7 years, Paige Parsons Roache has been committed to bringing ECO-VEGANISM to the forefront of every interaction: Environmentally conscious vegan living. After watching the documentary COWSPIRACY, she went vegan on the spot. Her daughter Katelyn, 13 at the time, chose veganism for the animals 6 months earlier. Paige, on the other hand, after being shocked by the environmental impact of eating meat and dairy, chose to go vegan “for the environment.” Soon after, she attended her first pig vigil with LA Animal Save/Animal Save Movement. Once she looked those baby pigs in the eyes, she knew why her daughter had gone vegan. Cooking as a guest chef on LunchBreakLIVE after meeting Jane Velez-Mitchell at VegFestLA, and inspired by Jane’s bold courage, Paige became a Contributor for UnChainedTV. Reporting on all the latest animal rights news. She also became the Senior Booker for UnChainedTV.
