One of the reasons I feel that this belongs in FYT is that many of us are vegan - at which point, this no longer is an eating or nutrition issue but a lifestyle issue. My veganism affects many parts of my life that are not related to eating - clothing, pets, makeup, household cleaners, furniture, photographs, you name it.
Obviously I can't post a question to you other veggies in a topic in good eating about finding some non-leather shoes.
But I vote that at least at the moment, we continue to use this thread and discuss anything that we want related to vegetarianism or veganism whether it pertains to food or not. That way we can continue to support each other as a tribe.
On that note - I wanted to make a recommendation to anyone whose DP (or perhaps you) have been craving a nice biker wallet (you know the kind with the chain and 2 snaps). Pangea vegan company has a really nice looking one. My husband has worn it daily for 2 years and it still looks new. I was just looking at it on the floor and wanted to share.
We also have a couch with washable covers - which is easy to clean, like a leather one, but without..the leather!
