2. Educate Yourself
A clear vision of what motivates you is an important part of easy transition to a vegan lifestyle. You can learn about why veganism matters through an amazing range of documentaries, books, and websites. Powerful films such as Cowspiracy, Earthlings, and The Game Changers will give you a clear perspective on your lifestyle choice, and help you explain it to others. Sometimes, watching such documentaries can be upsetting for animal lovers, but part of this lifestyle change means being honest with ourselves. We need to learn about the impact of our choices, and take responsibility as we move forwards!
“When you change your mind, and start living according to your new points of view, you begin changing truth.”
3. Make Vegan Conscious Fashion Choices
Of course, a vegan lifestyle means more than focusing on the things we eat. It also means changing all the other buying choices that we make! Conscious fashion consumers not only avoid leather made from animal skin. They also steer clear of plastics that break down into microplastics, or leach nasty chemicals into the environment. Viktoria is a brand that takes these issues very seriously! That's why we use PU, or Polyurethane, to create our high quality vegan leather goods. This type of plastic biodegrades without causing these harmful pollutants. In the future, we aim to move towards innovative plastic-free vegan leathers, and products made from recycled ocean plastic too!
