In today’s episode, we’ll be talking to Bree and Ben from the vegan travel blog ‘It’s Bree and Ben’. Bree and Ben blog about kind travel. Originally from California, they packed up everything in 2017 and did an epic road trip across the length of Canada! Since then, they have done some really fun trips in the US and they document their trips and inspiration for vegan travel for their readers and have a lot of informative posts as well as some destination guides. Their mission is to promote kind travel. Of course, veganism is a part of that but they also talk about how to just be kinder when traveling from an environmental perspective but also culturally literate too which is a great term to define a big part of what we talk about.
