ABOUT VEGAN CUTS

Vegan Cuts is run by a vegan couple, John and Jill, who really want to see more people shopping with vegan ethics. A commitment to buying vegan food is a great start, but you can also make a positive difference by choosing vegan options when purchasing clothing, shoes, accessories, bodycare products and everyday household items. This is why Vegan Cuts features a range of vegan products and encourages members to shop vegan by promoting opportunities to save money while eschewing animal cruelty.

  26. aireyell says:

    I’m thankful for the absolutely fantastic life that’s been given to me. Being born into a well off society, with a family that would die for me, the resources to attend a University in a comfortable apartment at an affordable price, and any type of entertainment so easily available. I’m able to enjoy every single moment of my life because all of my needs are met, and any ailment can be aided within minutes. I know that compared to the lifestyles of people in other parts of the world, I’m living in royalty. And aside from all of these material things, the world around us is so incredibly breathtaking. And it’s always there to enjoy. Have you been to the beach? To the mountains? Have you watched the sky at night when there was no light pollution blocking your view? It’s surreal. I “can’t believe how strange it is to be anything at all.”
