LAIKA: Issue  No.5 • The Strength Issue

The Strength Issue, the fifth edition of LAIKA Magazine embodies the fearless determination, bold innovation and formidable spirit of veganism. A Merit Award winner from the Society of Publication Designers for its outstanding photography, LAIKA’s fifth issue is brimming with gorgeous visuals and unforgettable stories that span the globe — from Costa Rica, to Australia, to Germany, the United States and even Antarctica. Gracing the cover are activists David “the 300 Pound Vegan” Carter and his wife Paige Carter, who together exemplify that standing up for the defenseless is the definition of true strength. In our uplifting profile, they open up about their vegan journey and natural lifestyle, David’s intense NFL training routine and his rise as an influential activist. Inside, there are thoughtful interviews with influencers like Senator Cory Booker and artist Sue Coe. We journey with Sea Shepherd on their Operation Icefish Campaign, getting to know the crew aboard the Bob Barker vessel through candid personal essays. In the stunning feature Freeborn, the stories of farm animals born into freedom are poignantly told; and in the powerful investigation No Home on the Range we reveal how the “humane meat” industry is erradicating America’s wild horses. Over 25 pages in the Strength Issue are devoted to the complexity and emotionl landscape of animals. Of course, there are incredible recipes for everything from vegan almond brie to brazilian slaw. And as always, we share vibrant reports on style, ethical jewelry, eco-luscious beauty tips and trends, and so much more!
