Why did you go veg? … I was really turned off by the animal agriculture industry and the their lack of accountability for their actions. It’s a very unsustainable business and does more harm than good. I also learned of the negative effects that animal products have on the human body… Especially at the rate the world is consuming it. I love animals and I want to be as healthy as I can be in mind and body so it made a lot of sense to go vegan.
What is your favorite thing to skate and why? I don’t know if I have a favorite thing but lately I have been really into skating vert. Catching air is so fun!
What shoe are you skating in now? DC shoes. They’re not all vegan, but maybe one day!
Or say whatever you want about skating veg… If you want more information about how a vegan lifestyle can help you and our planet, watch the documentaries, “Forks Over Knives” and “Conspiracy.”
WOW John! Your skateboarding gives us shivers and a sick feeling in the bottom of the stomach, but in a good way! If you haven’t heard, Mr. Gardner is skating himself to an early grave as the newest team member at Creature! Well deserved, his skating is brutal and we are glad to have him on the Vegetable Shredder team too! (Liquid Swords on that video, too! Nice choice!)
