Roses Are Red. Violets Are Blue. If You’re Vegan, These Gifts Are for You

Been struck by Cupid’s arrow? If you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day gift for your partner, wear your heart on your sleeve by choosing compassionate, cruelty-free gifts!

No one should suffer for your display of affection. But cows on dairy farms live desperate, miserable lives for the milk used in many chocolates. And on fur farms animals endure horrific cruelty and confinement for just a little fur trim. Even some lingerie is made from silk, which requires some 6,600 silkworms to be killed just to make 1 kilogram of the stuff. Luckily, compassionate lovers can still enjoy sexy faux-fur and slinky synthetic products as well as dairy-free vegan chocolates:

Want to go all the way and veganise your sex life? For down bedding, feathers may be violently torn from live geese and ducks, and some condoms can contain animal ingredients. Celebrate love by choosing vegan-friendly products.

    Please also remember perfume and skincare that is BUAV approved or not tested on animals by another quality control, Odylique, MuLondon and Balm Balm are all great

    Please can you only advertise Fairtrade or Organic Chocolate, as ones that are not Fairtrade or Organic have probably caused much unfairness to humans, and probably also contain palm oil, the growing/harvesting of which causes suffering and death to orangutangs.

    Please can you only advertise cotton products which are certified organic and/or fairtrade, as the non-organic/non-fairtrade cotton farming industry causes the death of 20,000 farmers every year due to toxic chemicals and also suicide due to being unable to pay high fees for necessary items. Also, non-fairtrade, non-organic clothing and other items are probably made in sweatshops – poor treatment of humans is just as bad as poor treatment of animals. I wonder just how many of the items you have shown are actually ethically sourced?
