We called it the Divine Double because we were blessed to do two things we love the most back to back. Never would have imaged that when Tate and I first started playing hockey together nearly 6 years ago. At the time, neither of us were vegan. A few years after I went vegan in 2015 (after 25 years as a vegetarian), Tate started asking me questions about eating plant based.
He finally went all in one year ago. And by all in, I mean that he dove into animal activism and advocacy as well. Thus our Divine Double consisted of playing hockey and then going directly to a pig vigil. It was a special day for both of us and it made a lasting impression on me.
That’s why last fall, I hired Tate as a member of our Vibrant Energy staff. Tate marks his vegan anniversary by the Super Bowl and last weekend marked his first veganniversary.
