A vegan lifestyle is one of compassion. Not only do vegans avoid eating animal products, they avoid wearing them as well. They also avoid all products that are tested on animals. At first it may seem like a burden to read ingredients on food packages and content labels on food, but it becomes second nature really quickly. Vegan living is not about depravation – it’s about celebrating life. I believe on focusing on what you can have instead of dwelling on what you can’t.

Fortunately, it’s very easy to life a vegan lifestyle. There are many easy to find alternatives to leather, wool and down. Vegan foods and cruelty-free products are becoming more readily available as veganism becomes more mainstream.
