Being a lover of fashion, I figured it would be rediculous to not include a post about veganism and fashion. As most of you probably already know, veganism is less of a dietary choice and more of a world view. Therefore, vegans generally tend to steer away from using products containing animal byproducts and wearing clothes made with furs or leather. Naturally, a great solution to some of these issues is shopping vintage or thrift- my favorite!
There are plenty of thrift stores all over the place, but if you don't have the patience to dig through the racks, head over to etsy.com, a veritable treasure trove of animal and planet friendly goodies. They make it easy to search for what you want- you can browse by category or color, check out their hand picked gift guides and even use pounce (my favorite) to discover new shops. And that's just the begining. You can even search on etsy.com by location to cut back on the environmental effects of shipping and packaging. There are many sellers who offer soy candles, vegan baked goods, and vegan beauty items. Hold on to you're seats cause there are so many amazing things to be found.
Here are some favorites:
