Model Lily Cole has become vegan and travels by trains around the country to be more sustainable
Model Lily Cole is now ‘95% vegan’ in a bid to live a more sustainable living.
The 33-year-old is trying to stamp out her carbon footprint by shunning cars and planes in favour for trains.
Lily spoke out about her passion of being environmentally friendly on BBC Radio 4 today, after adjusting her demanding life to make sure she was greener overall.
“In terms of actions, diet is a main thing for me, it’s something I can control. I eat mostly vegan, probably like 95 per cent plus,” she said.
“I’ve tried to consume less and support more sustainable businesses.
“The biggest thing is probably a mindset shift, pushing against the narrative that we need to buy more, do more, and moving out of a mindset of waste.”
Since turning towards a more sustainable lifestyle, Lily was a headline speaker at the virtual Earthrise Summit in May this year.
She’s also reduced her travelling commitments in order to help this further.
“Travelling is probably the one I found the hardest because my job does require me to travel a lot and if I’m honest, I really love travel,” Lily admitted.
“There’s loads of positives in terms of cultures being opened to each other. I don’t think with any of these things there’s a simple right, wrong.

“So often these conversations focus on what individuals are doing. Sometimes I think the obsession with individual perfection or imperfection can be a distraction from the bigger conversations that need to happen.”

The cast is led by Hunters and Riviera actress, Lena Olin.
