What are YOUR favorite sites for vegan stuff?

Due to TS Noel, there are already power outages in Palm Beach County and my meetings have been canceled so I get some unexpected time to gather much-needed data. Before my power goes, I’d like your help.

At the near end of my pamphlet in the What You Can Do section, I have the following:

Living by example and showing those around you how easy and inexpensive it is to be healthy, happy and stylish without using animals is the best way to generate interest in veganism. But when people start asking you questions and challenging what you say and do, you must have a list of resources to direct them to for further information. Here are some of my favorites:

I have PPS for farmed animal info (and later with regards to sanctuaries and there’s a brief discussion about what you’re looking for in a sanctuary). I have Tribe of Heart for movies to check out, then I have the links to the University of Chicago Study as well as Livestock’s Long Shadow and a brief statement about the environment.

Here’s what I need:

  • What’s your favorite site, and it’s probably not an environment one, that handles the environment/animal-eating connection the best? (I find environment ones skirt the issue of don’t deal with it adequately.) I usually prefer to go directly to the source, like the studies, rather than read someone else’s interpretation. Also, then I don’t look like I’m promoting anyone–just providing information.
  • What’s your favorite vegan stuff site? Vegan Essentials, maybe? Again, I don’t want to promote any national group that endorses cage-free eggs and the like.
  • Any other ideas?

    For environmental stuff, this might work:

    It is a FARM site, though, and while there is both a summary as well as a link to the actual UN report, including that link to FARM might be seen as supporting a specific organization, which you're trying to avoid.

    Vegan Essentials is good, though I shop more at Pangea ( because it is so close that my package will arrive the day after I order it. Some things they don't carry, however, and that's when I shop at Vegan Essentials or Cosmos. Herbivore has some great message t-shirts. Mooshoes has lots of shoes and accessories. Food Fight Grocery has lots of junk food. I believe Vegan Treats has online ordering. I think Stickyfingers Bakery does as well.

    Downbound has organic cotton and hemp clothing, and I think it is all vegan, but you'd need to verify because I can't remember for certain. They're good on humans as well, but cheap they are not.

    Oh, you can find vegan stuff at – it is a collection of people selling the stuff they make, so you have to look at the materials they use and/or ask questions, but it is there, and often nicer and cheaper than commercially made stuff.

    There's tons of online vegan shopping, and more all the time it seems!

    I think Deb got just about every place I would mention! I especially want to give props to Etsy, though, b/c of the small-scale, indie crafters that you can find doing a lot of amazing vegan stuff there. One of my recent amazing finds there were the necklaces by julep115 (aka Christy Robinson: I got a "I am a friend not food" necklace, & I see she's added even more vegan designs. I've also gotten fabulous hand-made vegan soap from Etsy, & they also have vegan scarves, food (I've heard wonderful things about Vegan Honey's [ vegan baked goods but haven't ordered myself… yet), etc. etc. etc.

    I promise I'm not being paid to plug all that stuff–Etsy in general just makes me so happy I had to blather. 🙂

  3. NO WAY!

    I was just at Etsy less than 60 seconds ago. It was my first time and I love the idea of handmade products.

  5. here's a blog that's a great vegan shopping resource… she only features shops that are completely vegan, and most of them are vegan-owned.

  6. For vegan health and beauty and vitamins etc. these two sites are my faves… They are new and older sites run by the same (vegan owned) company and they mostly sell the same stuff. They are UK based but deliver worldwide too. and
