There is one concept I know to be true and that is money talks. The more vegan choices you make with your wallet, the more industry will follow. We can't rely on legislation or commercial goodwill, but a sea-change in purchasing behaviour will move the needle and create a tipping point. This can only be good news for the planet, our health and animal welfare.
And on a purely commercial note, while I don't make recommendations often for products, a friend recently gave me a vegan shaving lotion which I absolutely love. If you're in the market for a new ethical product I highly recommend Jack Black's Beard Lube Conditioning Shave and no I don't get money for saying so, they have no idea who I am.
