Best Instagram Accounts For Cruelty-Free Living!

UPDATE (December 2017): This list was originally compiled in September 2015. The whole world was watching Cowspiracy and finding themselves inspired to learn more about going vegan! I put together this list of primarily Instagram accounts to help out, and they’re all still pretty accurate!

Olivine Perfume GIVEAWAY!

If you saw my recent Instagram post, you know how thrilled I was to discover Olivine Atelier perfume, a relatively new vegan, cruelty-free scent collection!

Everything I sampled seemed to smell like either the epitome ofContinue reading “Olivine Perfume GIVEAWAY!”

This “vegan skirt” sign caught my eye (thanks to its prominent display) within 15 seconds of entering the store.
