Vegan Basics

The term ‘vegan’ was first used in 1944 by the Vegan Society of England, a group of people who chose a plant-based diet for both health and ethical reasons. Vegan diets exclude all animal products including meat, dairy, honey, and eggs. Some vegans also exclude the use of items made from animals or animal products, such as leather. Not buying products made from animals requires vigilance and education. Animal by-products are used in everything from shoe polish to lotion, apparel, shoes, furniture, and many more items.

Being a vegan means living a conscious and aware life. People choose a vegan diet and lifestyle for personal health, as well as for the well-being of animals and the planet.
