I am a Vegan and ask about everything I buy,investigate and try to buy from Vegan owned businesses as much as possible.I do live in a home which I am sure was built before my time with non vegan materials,I do shop at a grocery store that also sells dead bodies of non human animals but has a special section for Vegan food,but again it is easy & important to me to ask questions,slightly go out of my way to make sure what I buy,eat and wear or use or support is not animal cruelty.In answer to your question it is never morally or ethically justifiable to knowingly be a part of harm to non human animals.That is why it is every human's responsibility to ASK what is in what we are buying and how did it get that way. I am not going to knowingly do harm or murder a non human animal for my survival.I don't do it in a situation where is it easy not to such a city and I would not do it on a remote island,if god forbid myself or a loved one was very sick and a doctor wanted to test on an non human animal or kill a non human animal to make my "medicine" I would not allow it. Every where there is a choice and 99% of situations have a vegan option I am going to choose the Vegan option.There are many things and situations that I choose to not have or be a part of but I am not I am missing out or depraved-seriously we live in 2010 there is so many vegan options and alternatives from basic and inexpensive to fancy and expensive for all lifestyles. If you from the beginning introduce VEGANISIM and not vegetarianism you will have a higher rate of people going Vegan.My husband came from a foreign country where no one even speaks of Veganisim.Because he was introduced to Veganisim straight of the bat he became a Vegan not a vegetarian.
