Tips for Parents
November is Vegan Month
Vegans go one step beyond what vegetarians choose by not eating animals; they steer clear of all animal products.
What Does It Mean?
Vegans avoid using or consuming animal products. This includes milk, cheese, eggs, leather, fur, wool, silk, down and products tested on animals (such as chemicals or cosmetics). Students often choose to make a commitment to a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle during their college years. The reasons for this vary: their awareness is raised, they are able to talk with more people making similar choices, they are stirred to get active and this lifestyle choice is one part of it.
