Happy World Vegan Day to all of my fellow plant-based people (or those who are vegan curious 😊).
I’ve been vegan since 2013. Once I learned about the factory farming system, industrial animal testing, and other sad realities of our world, I made the decision to withdraw my financial support of those systems, to whatever extent was possible. I never looked back. 🙏
The definition of veganism, as given by The Vegan Society, is this: “Veganism is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude—as far as is possible and practicable—all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, humans and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals.” 💚🌱
In a rampantly consumerist society, perfection is next to impossible. Not everyone is in a position whereby they can fully embrace veganism, but every little change makes a difference. Plant-based food options, vegan shoes, animal-free clothing, cruelty-free cosmetics and other daily essentials have come a long way in the last few years. I’m always happy to offer tips and advice to those who are vegan curious, or want to replace an animal-derived product with a cruelty-free alternative. 💞
The cause of making this world a kinder, more loving place for all living beings is indescribably dear to my heart. Nothing and no one can ever sway me from that. 🌍
A world without cruelty is possible. ❤
