Why Go Vegan?
The basic definition of vegan is someone who neither eats or uses animal-based products in their lives at least within the realm of reality.
Vegans usually want to stop the slaughter of and mistreatment of animals, eliminate the health risks associated with eating animal products, and they want to reduce their environmental footprint.
It all boils down to doing the least amount of harm that you can do to animals and the environment.
When given the choice to starve and die or eat an animal a vegetarian may choose the least harmful way such as eating eggs over the chicken.
For some people being a fully committed vegan also means a strict adherence to not using any type of animal product at all in terms of clothing, furniture, or makeup.
Some new vegans will even get rid of all the clothing and or furniture they already have that is animal derived.
Some vegans claim keeping those items is better because just throwing them away adds to the landfill and dishonors the life given up.
You’ll find pretty much all sorts of definitions of vegan from the strictly food-based idea of not using any animal products in food, to the not using any animal products in clothing, furniture, household appliances, medicine and more.
