Daniel Bovalino on Creating a Compassionate Cycling Culture Through Vegan Athletic Apparel


Today on the show we’re excited to share a conversation with Daniel Bovalino, the founder and visionary behind Vegan Athletic Apparela new company dedicated to creating the most sustainable, ethical, functional, and stylish cycling clothing. After hearing about this new company started in Australia, I knew it would soon be huge and profound in shifting the paradigm…perfect for Thought For Food. This was a really engaging talk that covered a lot of fascinating topics, including:

  • How Daniel got into cycling
  • The story behind the creation of Vegan Athletic Apparel
  • What it means to be an ethically-driven company and what the fashion industry looks like
  • Daniel’s foray into veganism and nutrition and how it has impacted him as an athlete
  • His goal for changing the culture within cycling to become more compassionate and sustainable

As a cyclist, I was really drawn to Dan’s philosophy towards the sport and especially the clothing component. I look forward to riding with Dan and the Aussie vegan cycling crew one day! NOTE: This is not a paid endorsement for Vegan Athletic Apparel, nor are they a sponsor for the show. I just really really believe in this company and what they are trying to achieve.

Hope you enjoy this episode, and go eat some plants!
