I don't try to be vegan... I just don't eat meat, except fish. I don;t see any harm in milk,eggs,honey... doesn;t harm the animal.
Oh, and I don;t buy real leather-made stuff. On the plain leather I can see the pores. Brrr...
And about real fur... you know, all furs are taken off the animal while the animal is alive. Because it's the only way to get the fur off intact and in good condition. Think about that before you wear/buy one...
But these perfume/cosmetic suff is really difficult.
I use little cosmetics,. so I managed to get 100% cruelty free ones, but it's extremely difficult about perfumes.
The only 100% cruelty free brand I found is L'occitane. It's listed everywere as 100% clear. They don;t test, don't pay for tests to be made and don't buy from providers that test on animals. Wich is good, till now I've got one on the list. LOL
Laundry detergents that are being tested on animals also seem to be very difficult to avoid: Tide, Ariel,Omo,Lenor... just few.Actually, most of them do animal tests. How on earth an I going to wash my clothes "enviormentally correct and cruelty-free"?...
Am I gonna do home-made soap for washing my clothes? And put it where I put the detergent? Sounds damn weird. Maybe I'll do that, though...I'll think about it. At least for MY personal laundry, I'd sure could do that.
Oh, pampers and female hygiene stuff is also animal tested. I use lunette (or divacup/mooncup, whatever, it's called lunette here), cause always hygiene products are tested on animals.
We're surrounded by those cruel products, it's extremely difficult to avoid them.
and... lollipopsneeze... it's true, there's no way to do this thing 100% correct. But at least we can avoid the very nasty ones.
Im mean... I know that the making of computer carcass might have contributed to enlarging the ozone hole, and my frodge uses freon, and all that... but i can contribute a tiny bit by not using substances for wich animals are kept in "animal death camps" and are tortured ... that's very difficult too. :(
