Paint, Giraffes and Family – Just another day at Lightlife!

With its angular spots and long neck and legs, the Giraffe is unique and immediately recognizable. The tallest of animals, the Giraffe is able to see over the tree tops into the future; a visionary. The Giraffe is a thoughtful risk taker and with its long legs is capable of moving very quickly but gracefully. The giraffe is good spirited, invokes good humor, travels lightly on the earth and thrives in a sometimes hostile environment. And, of course, the giraffe is a vegetarian.

We like to think of what we do here at Lightlife as just that; which is why we have those words written on the wall in our office.

Vegetarian and vegan lifestyles have been growing in popularity over the past couple of years, but Lightlife has been around since the start of it all. More than 30 years ago we started our vegetarian journey by first producing tempeh, and from there we have lived through our vision of providing easy solutions for people looking to reduce the amount of meat in their diet. With more and more people catching on to the benefits of eating meatless, we hope to continue to travel lightly as a visionary into the future of vegetarian eating with a few good laughs along the way!

We recently had a beautiful mural painted right next to our Giraffe motto to visually remind us of why we do what we do. Our acclaimed artist, Elizabeth Doiron, spent a week here with us sketching and painting the masterpiece.

As an art student, and daughter of two Lightlife employees, she simultaneously captured the essence of our company and the incredibly unique animal. It lights up our office and brings an undeniable positive energy to a room that was in need of a little sprucing up! A big thank you to Elizabeth for sharing her talents with us – it makes me smile every time I walk into the room. 🙂

What animal do you think you would be? Do you think our Giraffe theory fits with how you view us?
