I know many people who think that dressy clothes are mostly made from wool, silk, leather or other animal sources. I have written this article because I want to dispel this myth and show you how easy it is to be vegan beyond what we eat.Read More
Filtering by Category: Clothes and shoes etc.
Here, I explore the myth: “it’s not possible for vegans to find a variety of shoes. Their choices are so limited.”Read More
I know vegans and non-vegans who think that it’s really hard to find vegan clothing. People seem to equate wanting to wear something that wasn’t sourced from an animal, to making do and having limited choices.
I am going to dispel this myth through a series of articles, and this one is the first in the batch!Read More
Is buying vegan shoes a problem?
I like variety in the food I eat, the clothes I wear and the shoes I own. If it looks too samey, then I won't want it, and if it's animal based, I won't want to buy it or use it.
The assumption about vegan shoes
When others have noticed my shoes, if they don't know how strongly I feel about only wearing vegan shoes, they will assume that they aren't vegan. This assumption is usually expressed like this: 'but your shoes aren't vegan are they?'Read More
I found out that Hsuan Lin was going to be at VegFest and I couldn't wait to meet her. She had a warm, fun and compassionate way about her, which came through in her emails and her t-shirt designs. She sold out of some of her creations so quickly, that I didn't even get to see them! However, I ended up getting three of them for myself! Naturally, the next step was to write this, so that she can tell you about her vegan business, Bazaar De Luxe.Read More
I love the concept behind the Vegan Mafia! Instead of it referring to a group that has a hidden sinister influence, which comprises of wanted criminals, who have a ruthless behavioural code; this mafia group comprises of vegetables whose behaviour is to ruthlessly protect the body from unwanted diseases. There's nothing hidden about the invaluable work they do, and the only involvement of sinister influence is with regards to that which they exist to prevent!
Find out more about the amazing group of people who created the Vegan Mafia to showcase the often unnoticed, unrecognised work of vegetables!Read More

I'd love for you to meet Andy Tabar. He went from omnivore to vegan within eight months, and then kind of fell into creating his own business. With his 'do it yourself' attitude, and resourceful nature, he started making his own t-shirts because he wanted them to have a certain feel, expressing messages about veganism and made in a way which was as kind and ethical as possible. This led to him creating Compassionate Co through which he design t-shirts to fit all sorts of people whether they be feisty or not!Read More
