Karris was a long term vegetarian who became vegan after coming across a very graphic video on YouTube that showed male baby chicks being ground alive, simply as a by product of the egg industry. All of her pre conceived notions that being vegetarian didn't contribute to animal suffering came crashing down around her, and she started eliminating animal products from her diet before starting to consider the wider reaching aspects of veganism, such as the boycotting of marine parks and zoos. Karris says 'Once you 'make the connection' everything starts to fall into place and it's like a veil has been lifted! I only wish I had made the connection sooner.'
You can normally find Karris engrossed in a good book, or catching up on her favourite youtube/instagram accounts.
Scott says "I used to be blind to what I consumed. I never gave it a second thought, and mistakenly thought that some animals were here because they were a food source. I didn't really consider what was actually happening as a back end process; the cruelty, death, destruction. As Karris transitioned from vegetarian to vegan, I became more aware of the torture of the egg and dairy industry and more exposed to the huge market of alternative choices. When faced with the reality that I can spend a little extra time choosing what I eat, and avoid an entire global industry of torture, harm and ecological destruction, I knew that I could never justify eating food which came from an animal again".
Scott's days are long and full, and his spare time is mainly spent chaperoning children to Muay Thai, dancing, gymnastics, mini kickers and more....but when the time to relax does arrive, he loves watching the mighty Glasgow Celtic play football, and his all time favourite, the UFC. He also loves a craft beer.
