It’s the time of year again when the unspeakable horrors of the meat and dairy industries are put on display for all to see.
The majority of the Western world has special occasions coming up like Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, or even just daily life. It’s customary to give gifts or show the people around you you care about them.
Although most of us try to avoid buying meat or dairy for ourselves, it’s tough to avoid buying it as a gift. But, do you really want to give a gift that supports something you oppose?
If you are vegetarian or a health geek like myself then you want to buy a gift for that special someone that supports their efforts! That is why we put together this guide of vegan gifts for health and eco-conscious herbivores.

One of the best pieces of wisdom anyone can come to understand is that kindness and compassion are essential to making the world a better place for everyone. She has been the driving force in many of the eco-movements we now support – from clean water access, to recycling, to animal rights. Compassion and kindness are far too important to neglect. Instead, we should aim to make a difference in the way we treat all living things. Being kind is the first step, but many also choose to go a step further and follow a plant-based diet.
