I’ve been a bit quiet online lately, because a hideous dose of gastro stopped me from even wanting to think about food for a while! I’ll spare you the details, but my days curled up in bed started me thinking about staying warm and comfortable without animal products.
“Who do you think those shoes were?” There’s nothing like a newly-vegan teenager to bring you back to earth when you’re trying to wear out your old leather shoes!
My daughter was referring, of course, to the animal whose skin was used to make my shoes.
It’s easy to remove foods containing animal products from our home, because we buy groceries every week, but what about all the leather, wool and down amongst my belongings? Am I supposed to throw it all out straight away, or what? What do people do?
