A little about me...
Hey there, my name is Ceara and I'm the creator behind Book of Leaves. I'm an actor by trade, working some part-time jobs too, those bills won't pay themselves!
I grew up in Wexford in the 'Sunny South East' of Ireland, surrounded by fields and backroads but I've been living in the ever expanding Dublin for the past 5 years. Growing up in the country-side, and having endless animal companions (that's Buddy pictured with me), instilled a deep connection and appreciation of nature in me. I would constantly be trying to rescue insects and mice from our cats and begging mam to adopt any stray we saw while driving.
I also always hated littering. At age 14, I was sitting in the back of a car with a guy I fancied, after getting chipper. He took his burger out of the bag, rolled down the window, and threw the bag out. Safe to say any feelings I had for him went out the window too!
Since going vegan over 3 years ago, I've learned more and more about climate change and various man-made industries that are contributing to the destruction of the world as we know it. I try do my bit for the planet but there's so much information out there, it can be a bit overwhelming. This podcast is a way to highlight people and businesses that we can all support and learn from to help us live more sustainably. The small things all add up!
