Hector Bellerin, Arsenal defender, has revealed that he has started to live more consciously.
“Sustainability is part of me,” said the Spaniard, in an interview with British GQ.
“I became vegan three years ago and as a result I make everyday decisions, like what to wear, more consciously,” he continued.
“It was difficult at first. I love clothes, and shopping used to be a big part of my life. But over time, I became aware of the scale of pollution and the harm the fashion industry is doing to the planet. This has caused a conflict in me.”
He added: “I’m still learning how to deal with it, how to shop and make more changes.”
