Esther the Wonder Pig is not your typical vegan activist.

Rescued back in 2012 and now living on a farm with her two loving parents, Esther has built up quite the social media after encouraging others to lead a cruelty-free and compassionate lifestyle. Esther has helped many who want to make the switch to all things plant-based.

Her latest announcement was the purchase of a plant-based mattress made by Kelowna’s very own company Haven Mattress Co. to her 1,400,000 Facebook audience.

Later that same week Esther had her friend (Greta Thunberg) over to share cupcakes and chat about politics and sustainability.

Greta Thunberg is the 15-year-old girl from Sweden who began the #FridaysForFuture protests, a worldwide movement urging international governments to take climate action seriously and to start making legislative changes.
