We know just how hard being vegan in a mostly non-vegan world can be.
Even living in vegan-friendly Northern California, we still had a tough
time finding cruelty-free products to support our lifestyle. Our solution
was to open an online store specializing in cruelty-free products.
For many of us, it often seems impossible to make a difference in this
world when, every day, we learn of more cases of animal cruelty and the
devastation of our environment caused by factory farming. But by simply
eating a plant-based diet and making an effort to buy products that are
100% vegan, we are reducing animal suffering and making a big difference
in the lives of animals and the environment every day. If you're not
already vegan or vegetarian, we are grateful for your interest in shopping
We are committed to bringing you vegan products that meet the highest
quality standards and we strive for 100% customer satisfaction. If you are
not completely satisfied with an item that you have purchased, you can
return it within 30 days of shipping for a full refund or exchange.
