Made In Chelsea’s Lucy Watson officially leaves her reality TV days behind her
Made In Chelsea‘s Lucy Watson has decided to ditch her days on television in order to focus on a career in animal welfare.
Lucy quit the E4 reality series back in 2016 and, according to OK! Magazine, the celebrity has now left behind television for good. Instead, the 26-year-old will focus her efforts on raising awareness for animal rights and promoting a vegan lifestyle.
Speaking to the publication, Lucy admitted that, although she finds the lack of eco-friendly projects in the industry disheartening, she is excited to see one or two examples of vegan fashion come for the fore. She said: “I see some designers still draping their catwalks in fur, and that’s frustrating. But at the same time, I also see innovative designers and brands using beautiful fabrics that don’t bleed – and that’s incredibly exciting.
these milks are pretty great and the cows can be free and happy 🙂 cows don't "need" to be milked. Their milk is only produced when they have a baby, much like every other mammal including ourselves. But because one day someone decided to start selling and marketing cows milk as a "delicious and nutritious drink" so many people want it and there's really not enough left for the calves. They are killed for the cows milk people drink, sometimes at only 3 days old. Cows milk always used to make me feel sick, before I knew the truth about it. The milks above are both healthier and more delicious, no calves have to die for you to drink these kinds of milk. Give em a try next time you're in the supermarket or ordering your coffee.
“I really do think that sustainable, vegan fabrics – like pineapple leather, yarns made from recycled plastic bottles, and down-alternative seed fibres – are the way of the future.”
Lucy encourages a vegan lifestyle on social media and on her YouTube channel, where she preaches the importance of protecting the environment and respecting animals. The star explained how she feels lucky that her career path has taken this direction.
“I’m a big fan of vegan fashion – it’s a trend we should all embrace. I have always loved animals and feel fortunate that so much of my work now is channelled into helping them.
“In September, I will be releasing my first cookbook, Feed Me Vegan, to show people how easy and delicious vegan eating is.”
Lucy is currently on the hunt for the next big vegan designer along with PETA and eco-friendly accessories brand Wilby.
“Basically, I’ll be looking for something that I would wear myself! This competition offers young designers a chance to be a part of the trend towards compassionate fashion – it’s all very exciting!”
