WhiteCub as a Brand started when our founder got inspired by the story of Linda Tucker and her efforts to save White Lions by forming “Global White Lions Protection Trust”.
She had the plan to start a vegan business in India, solely for the sake of Non Human animals, while looking for suitable name she came across story of White Lions.
WhiteCub even included a White Lion Cub picture in it’s logo. We have named ourselves ‘WhiteCub’ as a dedication to the cause of Linda Tucker. She has been involved in the protection of white cubs and their families, from the cruel practices of ‘canned hunting’, in East Africa for the past many years.
