Journalist and author Vanessa Holburn spent two years campaigning for a ban on third party pet sales in a bid to end the cruel practice of puppy farming. In 2018 she was invited to Downing Street to hear Michael Gove announce plans to change the law to support such a ban. The campaign is proof that ordinary people together can achieve extraordinary change.
Her current focus is 'greening' her small Berkshire village - advising business and community groups how to use and waste less and move towards becoming plastic-free, while sharing skills and resources.
Vanessa's publishing experience stretches over 24 years and her work has appeared in magazines, newspapers and digital outlets. Her consumer press credits include Private Eye, The Mirror, The Sun, Vegan Living, Woman's Own, Yours, Dogs Today, Ask The Doctor and The Independent on Sunday.
