What Makes a Gift Vegan?
If you’re not a vegan, you may have thought, what in the world makes a gift vegan!? Don’t worry; it doesn’t require any hocus pocus or spending hours searching the internet for that one elusive vegan gift. A vegan gift means it’s free of animal products.
That’s pretty straightforward, right?
That means no eggs, milk, meat, honey, or dairy if it’s a food product. If it’s clothing, avoid anything made with animals like leather, wool, silk, fur, etc. Sometimes products will clearly label their products as vegan, while others don’t, so check the label.
Also, when in doubt, ask Google! Often when I am in the store and checking out a new product, I will double-check this way.
Ok, one last thing, vegan doesn’t mean it’s cruelty-free or vice versa (cruelty-free means no animals were harmed through testing or other activities). When you’re Googling or looking at labels, look for both.
