The Vegan What, Where and Why

I saw a really great post earlier on a site I was visiting and I thought I'd share it.  
"The word 'veganism' denotes a philosophy and way of living which seeks to end the idea of animals as property and exclude all forms of intentional exploitation of, use of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, research or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of animals, including people and the environment.
In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals."

This should give you the info to help start off veganism a lot easier:

More things to avoid:

1. Animals as clothes: Leather, skins, furs, wool, silk, down, feathers...

2. Animals as entertainment:  Circuses, rodeos, zoos, aquariums, animal fights, animal races, hunting...

3. Companies that DO NOT test on animals(however CHECK INGREDIENTS they only verify testing not ingredients):
