Being vegan is simply respecting animals as beings who have their own life, and not thinking of them as property for the use of others. Vegans avoid use of all products that involve animal use and exploitation.
It is “a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practical, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals.” (The Vegan Society, United Kingdom). The word ‘vegan’ was coined in 1944 in the UK by Donald Watson.
