Earthling Ed

YouTube Personality and Vegan Activist

Earthling Ed created his YouTube channel with the aim of producing educational vegan content that would inspire and equip vegans with the information needed to be confident advocates for veganism. Since that time he has also began filming street interview videos where he asks members of the public questions about veganism and the morality of eating animals and their secretions.

He is also the co-founder of the activism group Surge, through which he organises protests and outreach events as well as organising the Official Animal Rights March in both 2016 and 2017.

Earthling Ed and the Surge team are currently touring around universities in the UK doing vegan outreach and the screening the documentary ‘Land of Hope and Glory’, which they created and released in August 2017.
