Marjani Makes Going Vegan a Cinch
According to the Economist, about 25% of the millennial population (ages 25-34) self-identify as vegan or vegetarian. Let’s face it, we all know someone who knows someone, who calls themselves a vegan. All it takes is a few Instagram searches for hashtags like #plantbased or #vegansofig and you will be transported into a world of smoothie bowls and hemp-infused creamers. But did you know that veganism extends far beyond just your food choices? There is a whole world of vegan beauty products out there, designed to be gentle on your skin and even gentler to the environment.
With the state of our global environment being what it is, it is only natural (pun intended) for us to consider alternatives when it comes to products we use in our daily lives. While going completely vegan may not be possible for you right now, there are small changes you can make today to help lessen your environmental impact on our dear Mother Earth. What’s one small change you can make? Consider swapping out one of your usual go-to makeup essentials for one or two vegan beauty products.
To help you start, we’ve narrowed down a few of our favorite beauty products that are not only vegan but also cruelty-free (no animal testing here!).
