Tell me if I’m alone in this: My decidedly-not-vegan-but-very-supportive family members ofttimes refer to me as if I am the epitome of health since I’m vegan and I’m a half-marathon runner. Of course, that’s all well and good if it inspires them to make more animal-friendly eating decisions. However, the lovely sprouting “V” stamped on the packaged foods that I eat doesn’t ensure that I’m not taking in ingredients that my body couldn’t necessarily do without. I also like wine. Like, really like wine.

Vegan Essentials has long been the online destination for vegan shoppers. They sell everything a vegan could need: vitamins, snacks, baking supplies, t-shirts, shoes, shampoo, seasonal treats (think easter eggs and advent calendars), and much, much more. They’re a much loved retailer, especially by vegans who live in small towns where vegan goodies are hard to find. Or, say, vegans who live in Canada because we’re a little starved for selection up here. I’m sure you could spend at least an hour browsing their online store. I recently did just that, and picked out some new, interesting products I wanted to try and share with you. So, let’s dig in…
It’s estimated that the average woman will have approximately 400 menstrual periods over the course of her lifetime. That’s a lot of blood loss for each and every one of us, and if we assume that an average period lasts around 5 days, with 6 or so product changes per day… that’s a hell of a lot of personal waste we’re all contributing. Fortunately, there are alternatives to the products that have been shoved at us (in us, on us) for the last 50+ years, and GladRags are a perfect example of this. They’re an eco-friendly, vegan-friendly company you need to know about.
I stopped using tampons several years ago, when a friend of mine introduced me to The Keeper natural rubber menstrual cup. I liked it, and though I switched over to The Diva Cup shortly afterward because I preferred the silicone version, I’ve been a dedicated cup user ever since. That being said, I haven’t been able to give up using pads entirely, as there have been days when the cup either wasn’t right to use, or needed some backup power.
