I'm still working on making all the right transitions in to veganism. I've done it with food and most of my bathroom products. However, I have a few quick questions (and yes, I did read the memories but I'm looking for more opinions/information as well as more updated info in general as some of the memory posts were several years old). So here goes!1. Cigarettes!
I know, I know... it's not healthy. I don't smoke a whole lot (I've never been a pack a day kind of girl, more of a social smoker or i'll have one on occasion if I'm driving, etc) and yes, I realize I need to quit, so please let's not turn this in to an anti-smoker crusade. I'm just wondering if all cigarettes have any kind of non-vegan product or are tested on animals, etc. Are there any better alternatives (at least until I make more of an effort to quit)?2. Razors and/or Waxing (Hair removal in general)!
I know most razors are tested on animals which I really hate. I know i've seen a few different options that are vegan/eco-friendly. Anyone want to recommend which they found worked best, though? How about waxing? Vegan/nonvegan? Should one contact the place they're looking to be waxed at first to find out? What do you all suggest? (And yes, I do realize some choose not to have hair removed all together, but that's always a personal choice one can make)3. Tampons!
First, I do realize that there are things like diva cups and menstrual pads and that these are better options. Perhaps I'm being narrow minded in my wanting to stick to tampons (at least for now), but for some reason things like diva cups scare me in to thinking I might always feel it and thus be uncomfortable. Does this vary from person to person? I've never enjoyed pads either as I feel that it always makes me feel messy and uncomfortable. Does anyone have any other options they know of or can recommend any kind of organic/more eco-friendly/vegan tampon? I'm open to suggestions.
Sorry for such a length post, but I hope it proves helpeful not only to myself but others looking to make better changes in their lives :)
