Veganism is the practice of minimizing harm to animals and abstaining from the use of animal products.
A vegan does not eat meat, eggs, or dairy products. A vegan does not wear clothing made from an animal (leather, wool, silk, goose feather, or fur). A vegan chooses not to support a place where animals are used for human entertainment (zoos, circus, and aquariums). A vegan cares about the planet and does their best to contribute towards creating a sustainable future, by recycling, reducing the use of plastics, wasted water, and energy.
