16 Vegan Products To Try (Based on Your Reason for Going Vegan)

16 Vegan Products To Try (Based on Your Reason for Going Vegan)

πŸ„πŸ’πŸ˜ For the Animals… πŸ– πŸ¬πŸ“

If you became a vegan because you happened to lock eyes with an animal that looked directly into your soul and you vowed right then and there to never to harm another — like Rainn Wilson and his potbelly pigs — say no more. We totally get it. Here are some products just for you…

Three Trees

Based on the idea that nourishment comes from nature, Three Trees blends nutrient-dense, rich flavorful nut milks from simple natural ingredients — no animals required. The original almond milk contains just 2 ingredients (organic almonds and water), or you can opt for a more decadent dairy replacement for your coffee with the new Barista blend. (Bonus: it’s packed in a 100% recycled plastic bottle).

Happy Earth Apparel

Happy Earth knows that the apparel industry — the materials used, along with how they are collected and processed — often contributes to destroying environments and endangering the living things that inhabit those ecosystems. That’s why they make items like this Heavyweight Tweed Jacket, from 100% organic cotton (no plastic!), using renewable energy. And with each purchase they give back by cleaning up plastic trash, planting trees, and funding climate initiatives.

Nomadic Naturals

Animal-grade products often have a lower standard than human-grade products. If that doesn’t jibe with you, consider Nomadic Naturals — personal care items designed to be multi-purpose, for pets and people. They use bio-based organic ingredients, are hypoallergenic, and won’t cause harm to the planet or any of the species that live on it. Use The Spray for disinfecting, deodorizing, repelling bugs, and freshening the air.

Madly Hadley

Think you could never give up bacon? Think again! This Coconut Bacon, created by plant-based chef, Madelyn Hadley, is even better than the animal version. It’s slightly sweet (from pure maple syrup), smoky (from spices), and just the right crispy texture (from toasted coconut, not soy). All of the ingredients are simple and organic, and it fits with Gluten Free, Paleo and Keto diets.

Spinster Sisters

While most soaps are not made directly with animal fat, a lot of the popular commercial brands do use animal-derived ingredients. Fortunately Spinster Sisters cast aside unhealthy and unethical ingredients to create clean skincare products like this Oatmeal, Milk & Honey bar soap which doesn’t actually contain real honey, beeswax, or any other animal products.

♻️ 🌍🌱 For the Environment… 🌲🌊 πŸ’š

You’d never guess these super soft luxury shoes are made with cactus — but that’s why they’re so special…water-resistant, stain-resistant, and they even float! The Yachty is made with leaves from the nopal cactus, which regenerates every 6-8 months. The soles are made with natural rubber, and they’re stitched with cotton, meaning the majority of the shoe is biodegradable when you’re done with them.

Queen of Hearts

The star of the show in this Superfood Salad Dressing is hemp hearts – a highly-digestible plant protein, with dozens of environmental benefits. Hemp plants require less land, use less water, renew depleted soil, and sequesters carbon! Plus after the oil is extracted, the remaining plant can be used to feed livestock or replace petroleum-based materials.


Over 500 million shampoo bottles end up in landfills (or the environment) every year, and since plastic doesn’t break down, the waste keeps piling up. Fortunately, Brixy shampoo and conditioner bars break the cycle. These bars are packed with quality ingredients that are selected to make a minimum impact on the planet and its species. Plus each bar last 2-3X longer than the typical bottled product, so fewer trips to the store.

TCHO Chocolate

Plant-based toffee is hard to do, but TCHO broke the mold with this fair trade, organic, vegan chocolate bar. Their commitment to ethical sourcing and transparency in the supply chain ensures that farmers are paid fair wages and empowered to create quality chocolate from their own cocoa. Not only is it delicious chocolate, but it’s free from soy and gluten, and surprisingly low in sugar.

This clean protein powder is made with almonds, which are also naturally high in protein, as well as fiber, calcium, vitamin E and B, potassium, iron, fiber, biotin, and healthy fats. Because the product is created using a natural process of cold-pressing, drying, and grinding (no harmful filler ingredients), this powder tastes great and leaves you feeling great too.

Coconut Cult

Live probiotic cultures are one of the best ways to take care of your gut (and in-turn your entire body ecosystem). Coconut Cult yogurt is made with 16 strains of probiotic; it’s free from refined sugar, gums and thickeners; and the fermented cultures are never pasteurized or treated with preservatives. This makes for a delicious, effervescent snack that heals from the inside out. Plus they do lots of fun limited edition flavors to keep things interesting.
