Hello babes! For this week’s Talkative Tuesday, I want to discuss something that may benefit not only you, but the planet as well. I’ve made a couple posts about my vegetarianism, and I’m still going strong with it! I transitioned from pescatarian to vegetarian and even though it’s bee hard at times, I’ve stuck with it! You can read more about my journey here and here if you like! If you’d like me to go more into detail about my vegetarianism journey, feel free to comment below! Anyways, this post will be going off of those ideas. Veganism is something I’ve been learning more and more about during the past 6 months and it’s really been causing me to think differently.
A big part of veganism, apart from not eating meat or dairy products, is not buying any products that cause harm to animals or are made from animal products. So many women love makeup and use it as an expression of themselves. However, so many companies are not vegan friendly, meaning they test on animals, causing them harm.
During my first year of college, our writing class required us to create a 15 page research paper. My topic I chose was animal cruelty. As expected, it was a ton of work and a lot of it wasn’t so fun. But I can say that I actually learned so much from my research. It is so heartbreaking what happens to these animals during tests and is 100% inhumane. We as humans are higher beings than animals, but that doesn’t mean we should take advantage of this fact. I believe that God put on this earth to care for the animals, not harm them to better our own lives. Every person can have their own opinion on this topic, but I thought I’d share a little snippet of my own.
Personally I have not transitioned to cruelty free products yet, but I would love to do so! If you share this opinion and want to start using only cruelty free products, I found a long list online that I want to share with you all! There are SO MANY cruelty free companies, so I think the best way to show you is in this photo below. This list is from crueltyfreekitty.com!
I’m stoked that this website has such a long list of cruelty free products. I personally use Too Faced, Anastasia Beverly Hills, ColourPop, and more and I can say these products are just as nice as, for example, MAC who is not a cruelty free makeup brand. I hope this Talkative Tuesday sparked your interest or helped inform you more about this cause! <3
