VEGANISM IS NOT JUST ABOUT FOOD. DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE WEARING?







VEGANISM IS NOT JUST ABOUT FOOD. DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE WEARING?

Many people perceive veganism as a diet free of animal products. But veganism is much more than that. It is a way of life that wants to eliminate all use of animals for food, clothing and other purposes. It strives for an ethical approach to animals, the protection of nature and an end to all cruelty.


That's why vegans not only renounce meat, dairy products and eggs, but also reject circuses, cosmetics tested on animals or clothes that have caused animals to lose their lives. As veganism grows in popularity, manufacturers are coming up with an increasingly diverse range of products, from food to cosmetics to clothing and shoes.


And so vegans can go with the fashion. What to avoid if you don't want to wear animal materials?

+ Leather

+ Fur

+ Feathers (some jackets and pillows contain them)

+ Silk

+ Wool

+ Some footwear contains animal glues.



Veganism often goes hand-in-hand with support for fair trade and environmentalism, so people choose not only products without animal ingredients, but also biodegradable ingredients and products that support local producers.


What materials to allow into your wardrobe if they are to be vegan?

+ Cork

+ Organic cotton

+ Linen

+ Hemp

+ Viscose

+ Vegan leather (replaces animal skin with coconut, mushrooms, banana paper, etc.)


If you want to avoid animal products in cosmetics, then look out for these ingredients:

+ Honey - strict vegans also reject honey. It is added to cosmetics for its softening and beneficial effects.

+ Beeswax - another non-vegan ingredient added to balms.

+ Carmine - a red dye that is added to lipsticks or blushes is made from the nopal worm.

+ Lanolin - is similar to petroleum jelly and is produced by the sebaceous glands of sheep.

+ Guanine - used as a gloss in decorative cosmetics. It is made from fish scales.
