The first issue of Raise Vegan will be released on May 15 - with Earthlings director Shaun Monson and his activist partner Amy Jean Davis featured on the cover, announcing her pregnancy.
Raise Vegan - the first ever vegan-parenting magazine - made the leap from digital to print for the first time this month, in response to reader requests.
CEO and Founder Janet Kearney told PBN: "The general feedback we had, was always to have it printed, but it's a big leap for a small company, and until recently, we were unsure if the audience was really there for it."
After smashing the 400-subscription benchmark required for the magazine to go to print, the Raise Vegan team were able to put their plan in motion - and now offer a twelve-month subscription package for just $42.
While each cover of Raise Vegan features iconic or inspiring vegan parents or families, Davis and Monson were the chosen couple for May's issue.
In the special feature, the pair share details on vegan pregnancy, morning sickness, raising vegan children - and Monson’s daughter, activist, and soon-to-be big sister Mira.
Monson and Davis were not shy about their hopes to raise a compassionate, vegan child, to follow in theirs and Mira’s footsteps.
Monson told Raise Vegan: “Ultimately we want a better future, not just for our children, but for the animals, too.”
