Life with Lorna
Lorna Eppel from Life with Lorna, is a young inspiring entrepreneur living in the city of Johannesburg trying to #LiveKinder in all facets of her life whether its creating healthy wholesome recipes, her photography or her magical tea blends. Lorna says: “This year for my birthday I decided to post a fund raiser online for donations instead of gifts because I wanted to do something special and meaningful! We can all live a little kinder just by the things we say as well as the way we treat those around us, by choosing to adopt not shop, cutting down on single use plastics and by following a more plant-based lifestyle. All of these things, big and small can make our beautiful planet a kinder place to be!” Find her on Instagram.

Vernon & Simóne
Vegan couple Vernon & Simóne aka The Leaf Eaters, are passionate about vegan recipes and product reviews on their social media channel, and love showing others how easy it is to live kinder. Simóne says: “We live kinder by choosing not to consume any products derived from animals and instead opt to support vegan friendly products and businesses. In return we are healthier, happier and we fight climate change as a result of our vegan lifestyle. We do not purchase products that are tested on animals and live a cruelty-free lifestyle. One of our go-to vegan dishes is pumpkins fritters (aka pampoen koekies). It’s so delicious and tastes exactly like we remember from our childhood days.” Find them on Instagram.
