We are living in the era of veganism, but the term is far from universal.
For many of us, veganism means a lifestyle that minimizes our use of animal products and uses plant-based alternatives.
That can be challenging, and we are learning to work through our misconceptions and learn how to find solutions.
Below are 10 ways to stay on track, while also making the best choices possible.1.
Don’t let your environment be a barrier to veganism.
We live in an age where we are constantly bombarded with images of people on the streets, and in some cases, people in the media wearing animal-free clothing.
These images and messages are not just offensive to vegans and their allies, they are also discouraging us to continue to embrace a lifestyle based on animal exploitation.
We need to be aware of the social and environmental barriers that vegans face as we choose to follow a vegan lifestyle.2.
Keep your eyes open for a more ethical way to eat.
As a vegan, we have a duty to be ethical and to be mindful of the environment, the food we consume, and the practices we use.
But if we’re looking to start veganism from scratch, we need to start with a healthier perspective on the animal products we consume and the ways we’re eating them.
If we start eating less animal products, then we’ll find that it’s much more rewarding to be vegan, and more in line with our values.3.
Use social media to connect with others.
Even if you are not vegan, social media can be a powerful tool for connecting with others and for sharing vegan recipes and resources.
It is especially important to take action in your local communities and share these vegan recipes with your friends and family.4.
Be aware of how you consume and care for the environment.
Vegans often take pride in being sustainable and animal-friendly.
We value the environment and are committed to making it a positive force in our lives.
But our vegan diet has more to do with the way we think about and use the planet.
Veganism is not just about eliminating animal products from our diet, but about changing how we use, and even use ourselves.
It’s also about changing the way that we think and act around the use and misuse of animals and the environment in general.5.
Do your research.
Be on the lookout for resources that can help you learn more about animal exploitation, how to change our way of thinking about and using the environment for animal purposes, and how to create a vegan-friendly lifestyle.
If you’re vegan, do your research on the topic.
Find out what is available online, in print, or through your local grocery store, and if you can find information on veganism in your community, it will be a great way to start.
