Veganism is doing the rounds of the town these days, and for all good reasons. The crux behind veganism is to adopt a cruelty-free lifestyle – be it towards animals or the planet. Vegans follow a plant-based diet avoiding all animal foods, dairy, eggs, and honey. Along with this, they avoid animal-derived materials or products tested from animals.
With so many exceptions, being a vegan seems like a task, but it actually isn’t. It is one of the healthiest ways of living and there is a slow but sure shift towards veganism around the world.
