Well day ones almost over, The vegan way of life started the hard way this morning after finding out I had no warm non woolen or merino clothing, Thanks to my wife for pointing out that my new Yak wool jersey is not vegan! A big thank you to Helen and Chris for a great soy flat white to keep me going. So far so good!

Many vegans will still wear leather or wool purchased before they went vegan, until it wears out. My rule has been no spending on non-vegan stuff for myself.

I will occasionally buy second hand non-vegan woolen clothes or at clothing swap-meets. I see it as not really creating a demand by buying second hand. I've still got some leather shoes and other non-vegan items left too ;) We call it being 'pragmatically principled'. Good on you for giving it a go, and it's interesting seeing you go through all the though processes. Our whole family is vegan and we LOVE food and don't see it is compromising or limiting in any way (except if we want to eat out, but it's getting better!). When you think of what is going on in food production, health, animal abuse, water use, pollution etc, it's the only logical conclusion. Good luck!
