Taryn Rasgon is the creator and clever mastermind behind the vegan-inspired brand, Vegetaryn. Growing up, she always had an affinity for food, often opting for unhealthy choices like McDonald's, In N’ Out, and Taco Bell. It wasn't until she returned from studying abroad in Barcelona when she realized the negative impact an animal-based diet was having on her health and the environment.
She earned her undergraduate education at Arizona State University, graduating with a BA in Communications and a Minor in Family & Human Development. With a yearning to learn more about nutrition, she decided to further her education by obtaining a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University. It was then that her passion to spread the vegan message began to blossom.
She channeled her energy and new-found appreciation for a plant-based diet into creating Vegetaryn, a lifestyle brand & online shop. As Vegetaryn has grown, she has continued to succeed in creating funny & punny merchandise that helps raise awareness about the vegan lifestyle #LettuceEatPlants. Her shirts are all ethically made, 100% sweatshop free, and hand printed in Los Angeles. Taryn also donates a portion of sales throughout the year to various organizations like Mercy For Animals, Rescue & Freedom Project, PETA, etc.
Taryn has embraced her entrepreneurial spirit, co-founding Biz Babez, an all female co-working space in the heart of downtown LA. As her businesses continue to grow and thrive, Taryn's mission to share her passion remains the same. She posts what she eats and wears everyday on her Instagram so make sure to follow along, @vegetaryn, to continue Taryn's journey with her.
