Vegan means that there are no animal-derived ingredients in the product and no animal testing of the products. Why is this good?
The quantity and the forms of animal cultivation are in imbalance with both morals and environment. Animal-derived ingredients are not only found in food, but also in cosmetics and many other products we use daily.
Next to this, many products are tested on animals. A cruel practice.
Previously we have written about how plastic is priced far lower than its true cost (read here). Well. So are animal products. If animals in farms are to have a good life, it would cost more than what we are currently paying. There is a trade-off between animal welfare and the end price tag, and animal torture is a consequence of this. The animal industry also accounts for a considerable part of greenhouse gas emissions, just like plastics do.
Our products are plant-based and free from both plastic and animal products.
We are not saying you should become vegan overnight. Yet, you deserve to know what plastic, animal products and synthetic chemicals are doing to the environment, animals and your own body. We’ll write more about this later, but for now, we can agree that reducing both plastic and animal products is good for both animals and the environment.
