About Liis Hainla

Liis Hainla

Liis Hainla is a writer, marketer, traveler, and above all, a devoted vegan and animal lover. She currently lives and writes in the magical European town of Tartu, Estonia.

In her free time, you can see Liis strutting the cobblestones with a strong Americano in one hand and her (way too spoiled) rescue pooch Emma in the other.


Liis is the former Estonian Communications Manager of Anima International. Through her activism, she has become a strong advocate for farm animal welfare across the world.

Liis has been vegan for eight years. She also helped launch a sustainable vegan shoe brand Kira Shoes.


Liis is currently the head editor of Vegan Avenue. Her goal is to educate people on the vegan lifestyle and help them find the best vegan and cruelty-free products for them.

Through Vegan Avenue, Liis aims to connect with people that lead an urban life like herself and who value quality, minimalism, sustainability, and great design. Read more about Vegan Avenue.
