Future Normal

Hello, Animal Lovers

Even before our world turned upside down and everything changed, many of us felt a growing disquiet and discomfort about how we exploit animals and the natural world.

Now, the desire to hit restart has gained momentum. Like every social change, when it arrives we wonder how ‘normal’ could ever have described what went before. We know we can create a kinder future for animals. And it starts here.

Welcome to the Future Normal.

A place to rediscover how amazing our relationship with animals can be – and how to create that change in our everyday lives.

The Future Normal is a happy place, and you’ll only see happy creatures here. Because when you love animals, you hate to see them suffer.

That’s normal.

Commit

If we’re open to making changes to our lives, the Future Normal is a place we can create. We have three considerations for you.
Will you help to make a difference?

Will you think differently?

Firstly, consider your feelings towards other animals. Do you care more about some than others? Commit to challenging this way of thinking. After all – animals are here with us, not for us.

Will you buy differently?

Each product we buy is a small vote for the kind of world we want to live in. So opt for plant-based foods, animal-free fashion and cosmetics which haven’t been tested on animals. As well as some new favourites, you may also gain peace of mind.

Will you play differently?

There are so many ways we can entertain ourselves without visiting zoos and animal circuses, or betting on horse or dog racing. Instead, you can choose to support sanctuaries and pledge to only marvel at animals free from cages or enclosures.
