The older I get and the longer I've been vegan, the more I appreciate how beautiful other species are. And while most of us love watching cute viral videos that feature them, we are not all making the connection between those beings and the ones on their plates.
Well, I believe the days of sacrificing animal lives for our eating and shopping habits are over. And since I love fashion, beauty, home décor, and dining out as much as (or probably more than) the next gal, I have learned a lot about living a completely vegan lifestyle—and I'm thrilled to highlight all of the wonderful substitutions for meat, eggs, dairy, fur, leather, suede, down, wool, cashmere, mohair, angora, silk, skins, bones, and animal testing.
It may require a little extra effort in your day to day life, but you don't need to forego your sense of style or taste while living vegan. In fact, it is super chic and delicious to be compassionate! And if you're not convinced, try visiting an animal sanctuary (my happy place)—rather than a zoo—to truly explore what animals are like.
And that's why I started In Your Vegan Style! I live north of Toronto now, but I travel back all the time and I'm proud to profile local, national and global businesses. This includes many non-vegan companies offering substantial vegan-friendly options. I simply hope this directory can help you make cruelty-free choices with greater ease!
Peace, love & animals,
