Christin Bummer

Creator of The Forever Diet

Though Christin worked in the pet care industry for 23 years, she went vegan in 2011 when she finally made the connection between her passion for animals and her food choices. She became involved with animal welfare activism in 2012 and has since been actively involved in steering Pittsburghers away from consuming animal products and moving toward a plant-centric diet. Christin launched an online video training program called The Forever Diet to help make the transition to a plant-based diet fun and easy. In fact, when you sign up for the 14 Day Reboot Challenge using this link, 25% of your purchase goes directly to HAP to fund future projects!
