i live a vegan lifestyle (that is, one avoiding all animal and animal-derived products) because it makes sense to me to do my best in achieving a non-violent, cruelty-free and ecologically-friendly existence. for information about specific issues, please visit joanne stepaniak, vegsource, the vegan society or p.e.t.a. heaps of recipes can also be found at the international vegetarian union. living a vegan lifestyle has enabled me to become more "in-touch" the effects my previous actions had on the environment and well-being of other creatures, as well as understanding the importance of compassion and ecological preservation. here i have compiled some of my favourite recipes and also a section on vegan cosmetics and toiletries that can be found in the supermarket. this section is far from completed but i hope you find it helpful!
