UK based Vegan lifestyle news, reviews and opinions.
Established in 2019 as a YouTube channel to highlight Vegan news, opinions and reviews, The Big Plant Theory started to grow but was then hit with financial difficulties and time constraints that lead to it being left alone.

As myContinue reading “Humane Slaughter™?”
Whether you were subscribed to The Big Plant Theory on YouTube or have stumbled across this blog some other way then I just want to say hi. The YouTube thing (which is still there by the way, check it out) was a dream of mine that slowly came to fruition but just as we startedContinue reading “Welcome (back?) to The Big Plant Theory”
