Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
Had a proposal essay a while ago, and the term I chose to define is 'vegan.' A vegan is, unquestionably, someone who does not consume meat or animal byproduct. But so does a total vegetarian, by definition. So how are they separate? For one, vegans do not purchase products which are seen to cause suffering, such as leather, suede, fur, and some vegans do not purchase palm oil. While a total vegetarian may abstain purely for dietary reasons, choosing to be vegan is solely an ethical lifestyle. You switch maybe for the environment, for the animals, etc.
Some people who are total vegetarian if they purchase leather. If you purchase leather, or meat, or in any way support an industry with your money, that is essentially, non-vegan. Making mistakes is part of being vegan, it's more about the conscientious effort to avoid harm in the world- which is easily done with a little research. It's about always learning, always caring, and ALWAYS going the extra mile.
I feel the need to rephrase this because sadly, I see many claiming to be vegan while propagating products which are inherently evil, and inherently cause pain or the death of one of our beloved Earthlings. There is never a reason to take a life, never one in all of existence. If you are not vegan yet, try and go today :) It's easier than you ever thought. It just takes a little creativity, a lot of love, and some caring research.
