As part of the partnership, Lewis, Hopefield and the HSI will work together to promote animal welfare by sharing stories of the lives of the sanctuary inmates many of whom have been recovered from factory farming.

The trio will also raise awareness on the benefits of plant-based eating in curbing greenhouses gases, saving gallons of water, and preventing animal suffering.

HSI UK will also assist Hopefield’s new café that was revamped to become vegan by developing material that can help educate customers on the benefits of adopting a plant-based lifestyle in terms of health, animals and the environment.

In a statement sent to Totally Vegan Buzz, Claire Bass, Executive Director of Humane Society International/UK said: “One of the simplest ways that we can make changes in our daily lives to combat climate change and animal suffering, is to eat more plant-based foods.

“So we’re thrilled to be working with Hopefield and Leona to enthuse new audiences in the benefits of cruelty-free cuisine.”

According to Hopefield’s website, the singer’s mission on being associated with the sanctuary “ is to make sure these animals can continue to live here…that we can build Hopefield into a sanctuary that will educate people globally on animal welfare and continue to save more animals in need.” 

Speaking on the collaboration, Lewis in a statement said: “Hopefield Sanctuary is incredibly dear to my heart, and I’ve also supported Humane Society International’s amazing work for a number of years, so I’m so excited about this partnership.

“Every pig, cow, turkey, sheep or chicken saved by Hopefield has a heart-breaking story to tell. Billions of animals just like them are raised and killed for food globally every year. These animals have very short and miserable lives. 

“HSI UK and Hopefield passionately believe in telling these animals’ stories to help our visitors rethink farmed animals and to see them the way we see them, as individuals with personalities, as friends not food.”
