Every year more and more people make the decision to adopt a vegan lifestyle. Practising a vegan lifestyle goes much deeper than simply addressing the foods you introduce into your body. It also involves every buying decision you make, including the decision to buy a vegan mattress for yourself and your family. Looking for best bed sale around New Zealand?

There are essentially three compelling reasons most people choose to adopt a vegan lifestyle. They include:

  • Avoiding the slaughter and mistreatment of animals.
  • Eliminating a variety of health risks.
  • Reducing carbon footprints.

Each one offers benefits to those who embraces veganism and to other people and animals as well.

What Does It Mean To Be Vegan?

Strictly speaking, someone who is vegan doesn’t eat or use animal products. Vegans opt for plant-based products instead of animal-based products. This goes beyond not eating meat. It means you don’t use or consume animal byproducts either. You will be shocked and amazed by how many animal products and byproducts are used in food, clothing and other items, including bedding.

For instance, many planet-friendly, high-quality mattresses use wool as a natural flame retardant. It is far better for people and the planet than mattresses that contain PBDE (polybrominated diphenyl ethers) flame retardants. Yet it still contains wool, made from sheep. Silk sheets are also off the market for vegans. You can forget about leather headboards too, unless it is made of synthetic leather, with no animal byproducts.

Common products vegans avoid include:

  • Leather
  • Wool
  • Honey
  • Silk
  • Dairy products
  • Meat
  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Poultry
  • Gelatin
  • Whey
  • Beeswax

Following a vegan diet can be extremely healthy, provided all your nutritional needs are met. This requires careful planning to ensure you’re getting the right concentration of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to support a healthy, active lifestyle, including:

  • Calcium
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin B12
  • Iodine
  • Protein

Many vegans face unique challenges, when it comes to reading labels, to find appropriate products to meet their needs. For instance, not all products claiming to be all-natural, are necessarily vegan. Some may even claim to be vegan while hiding animal byproducts in their ingredients. In other words, the food may be marked “vegetarian,” but it may contain animal-derived ingredients.

It takes time to learn how to read labels, to identify animal products. Once you get the hang of it though, you’ll find plenty of top brands and products to choose from that fit your lifestyle.

How Popular Is Veganism?

If you’re not a vegan now, you may be soon. According to Report Buyer, only one percent of the population was identified as vegan in 2014. Skip ahead to June of 2017 and those numbers increased to six percent of U.S. consumers who practice veganism in their diets.

With this kind of growth over a three year period, the expectation is that these numbers will only increase in time. This is why more businesses are beginning to create products designed with vegans in mind. This includes mattress manufacturers, who use organic cotton and other plant-based materials, to create wool-free mattress options for vegans.
