News Site Examines Veganizing Your Home

Online news source Quartz discusses removing animals from your home, in addition to your diet.

Last month, online news site Quartz recently published an article outlining the advancements in animal-free interior design and increasing popularity of veganism in America. An estimated two to six percent of the United States population is vegan, and a flexitarian diet that reduces animal-product consumption is gaining favor as well. When veganizing a home, items such as taxidermy, animal trophy heads, leather, suede, cowhide, fur, wool, and silk will all be removed. Additionally, some “natural” paints use casein (a milk protein) as a binder, so those should be avoided as well. Luckily, there are many alternatives such as quality vegan leather, durable bamboo silk, and traditionally animal-free materials such as cotton. “No one ever minds, once they see there are viable alternatives,” vegan interior designer Shannon Scott told the publication. “No one has to be feel deprived.”
