My name is Mary and I am a passionate member of the vegan community. I am not a professional and the advice you receive should always be taken with a pinch of salt. I am not a qualified doctor, psychiatrist, therapist, veterinarian, dietician or zoologist. I am simply a vegan woman, wanting to give something back to the vegan community.
I also have a fantastic co admin called Connie who you can follow here, who sometimes answers your asks.

PLEASE DO NOT BUY FROM BREEDERS EVER. There is NO such thing as a responsible breeder. Please, please do not ever purchase a companion fox.
You’re not going to like my answer but I am not one to tell lies. Yes, I do think it’s bad for people to eat honey. The honey industry is just as sick and inhumane as every other exploitive animal industry. I talk a lot about this in my FAQ- Why isn’t honey vegan?
Why not scramble your eggs and feed them back to your lovely hens? They’ll go nuts for it, I promise. Include the shell and mix it all up with their feed for a treat.
As for any spare eggs, how about donating them to a food bank? They’re ALWAYS in need of food.
I hope you didn’t feel as though I was judging you. I respect how hard you’re trying and am proud of you for transitioning. :) Stay informed darling!
With such a general question, it’s a little difficult for me to answer. I can, however, tell you that most soda is vegan. All you have to do is a little research into the company who makes them and contact them if necessary, if unsure. If you have a specific list of sodas you’d like to know about, I will gladly check those out for you. I darn’t give you PETA’s accidentally vegan beverage list as they do not seem to include such things as lanolin, shellac, cochineal and other by products.
Tons! :) Just ask veganmakeup and check out their List of cruelty free cosmetics. If you’re in the UK, I recommend Barry M (note, not everything is vegan) and if you’re in the US, I recommend E.L.F. :)
Hi gorgeous! :) I totally understand what you’re asking. The answer is- it’s to cover their backs. They have to keep on and on re testing so that no consumers can turn around and sue them for getting ill from a product. In other words, it’s all about the money. Poor souls indeed.
Don’t feel crappy. It was an accident and accidents happen. I just found out the other day that a drink my co admin and I have both consumed as of late contains FISH disgustingly enough. Don’t beat yourself up. It happens to the best of us.
Here are a ton of tips for you! :) Obviously a fair few of those are non applicable (replace honey with agave for example) but the vast majority is very useful. Feel better soon sweetie.
Please don’t panic! I have done it numerous times. These companies, I’m sure, are billionaires because of all the personal information I have unintentionally shared before I found out the truth. I recommend removing any accounts you have with petitions sites, creating a new one and giving as little information as possible. One of my followers suggested simply writing ‘Non Applicable’ in the address box. If it requires a zip/postal code, there must be a fake one you can find on the internet!
You should talk to them. If you’re having issues, honesty is always best. If you are not one for confrontation, perhaps consider writing them a letter! I can almost promise it will make a difference. Sometimes these people are just oblivious to how much they hurt us.
I had a similar issue with my grandma. She’d ALWAYS say to me I don’t eat enough of ‘this’ or ‘that’ because I’m vegan and in the end, I sat down and asked her very politely why she did it and told her how much it hurt and offended me. She immediately apologised (something my stubborn grandmother NEVER does) and hasn’t even brought it up since. In fact, she’s taking me to a vegan cafe on Tuesday to celebrate my birthday! :)
