Veganism, more than a diet?

Yes, we are a vegan brand even though we don't sell any edibles. While a vegan diet is a core component of the vegan lifestyle, it is just one aspect of a larger set of beliefs and practices. Veganism is a lifestyle rather than just a diet because it involves much more than just the food that a person eats.

At its core, veganism is a philosophy that seeks to eliminate the exploitation and cruelty of animals in all areas of life. This includes not just food, but also clothing, personal care products, and other consumer goods. Veganism is based on the belief that animals have the right to be treated with respect and compassion, and that it is wrong to use them for human benefit.

For example, a vegan lifestyle involves avoiding products made from animal materials, such as leather, wool, and silk. It also involves using cruelty-free personal care products and household cleaners that have not been tested on animals. Additionally, many vegans choose to avoid activities that exploit animals, such as visiting zoos or participating in horse racing.

By choosing to live a vegan lifestyle, individuals are making a conscious choice to support animal welfare and to reduce their impact on the environment. This involves a commitment to ethical and sustainable living, and often involves making choices that may be more difficult or less convenient than conventional options.

Overall, veganism is a lifestyle that involves a commitment to ethical and sustainable living, rather than just a dietary choice. It is a philosophy that seeks to promote compassion and respect for all living beings, and to reduce our impact on the environment.

* Please note that veganism is aiming to avoid any animal use where possible. These possibilities may differ depending on your economic status, health, location and more.
