INSPIRATION: OUR FAVOURITE CRUELTY FREE FINDS
You're used to Sans Beast being your favoured destination for vegan bags - but what about all your other cruelty free essentials? If you're looking for vegan friendly makeup, shoes, a restaurant, or maybe a book or podcast with some plant-based pearls of wisdom, the SB team have rounded up their favourite recommendations.
Vegan Makeup + Beauty
Fluff produce small runs of 100% vegan + cruelty free cosmetics + skincare. It's a low waste model, available by sign up only. Maddy is a big fan of the brand and loves their bronzer, face masks + exfoliator.
3ina are vegan + cruelty free, inclusive + ethical. Cathryn is a long time devotee of their lipsticks + blush, and we're coveting their 'No Rules Stick' for lips, cheeks + eyes.
The entire Mecca Max range moved to 100% vegan in 2018 - proof of the growth of the cruelty free movement - and we're particularly partial to the Pout Pop Lipsticks. Jennifer's favourite shade: the fabulously named 'Freedom Fighter.'
ELF - literally 'Eyes, Lips Face' - makeup + skincare is 100% vegan and cruelty free. It's budget priced with eye shadow starting at $6, so you can experiment and enjoy some cruelty free frivolity.
Vegan Friendly Apparel
Noskin make vegan shoes + sustainable apparel, designed in Melbourne and manufactured in ethical factories in Brazil + Hong Kong. Check out their Japanese selvedge denim, or our favourites: their signature Chelsea boots.
Lé Buns make swimwear, underwear + loungewear basics from organic cotton + regenerated nylon, sans nasty chemicals or animal products. Fun fact: every tonne of fishing net recovered + reused generates enough yarn for 26,000 bikini bottoms.
Vegan Candles + Homewares
Octo is based in South London, where the small team hand pours all its candles. Made from soy wax, the entire range is 100% vegan + cruelty free. We recommend the 'Italian Garden' with notes of Orange, Rosemary + Sage - citrus heaven.
Bhumi bedding + blankets are made from certified organic cotton, ethically produced in fairtrade factories. Check out their cruelty free quilts with organic cotton wadding, or for a luxe alternative to woollen blankets, we love their Herringbone cotton throws.
Plant Based Wisdom + Inspiration
Emma Hakansson details the devastating impact of animal agriculture on the planet, on animals + on people, and describes the meaningful benefits of living a plant based life. It's an inspiring + empowering read.
Liz Douglas has informative + engaging conversations with experts, activists + content creators on living a plant based life. A great listen if you're starting out and looking for vegan tips, or for reaffirming your choice to live cruelty free.
