Some Cruelty-Free Shopping and Other Vegan Resources
An Links Directory Page

Listed below are links to organizations and individuals who are dedicated to promoting and re-establishing compassion in society and religion. Our efforts are based upon sound Biblical teachings, many of which have been glossed over throughout the years. Far too many religious leaders and their congregations have lost their discernment of God's compassionate intent toward all of creation, including people, animals and the environment.

Resources - Worldwide guide to veggie restaurants and shopping and more...

Hand-Picked Veggie-Friendly Restaurants - We love looking for delicious vegetarian and vegan food. We eat out, get tons of recommendations from friends, read blogs and reviews, and compile everything here.

Leaping Bunny Approved Brands - By 1996, 'cruelty-free' shopping had become popular, but it was also confusing, sometimes misleading, and ultimately frustrating. Companies had begun designing their own bunny logos, abiding by their own definition of 'cruelty-free' or 'animal friendly' without the participation of animal protection groups. In response, eight national animal protection groups banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC promotes a single comprehensive standard and an internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo. We work with companies to help make shopping for animal-friendly products easier and more trustworthy.

Refuges and Sanctuaries for Farmed Animals That Promote Veganism - Visit these sites for products sold to support the rescue and life-long care of farmed animals who have been saved from being slaughtered.

Selecting Candles Without Tallow, Paraffin or Beeswax - What makes a candle vegan and cruelty-free? What harmful products are often used in candles?

Vegan Lifestyle Association - Support for anyone who wants to live a greener, healthier and more ethical way of life. We welcome everyone - whether you're an omnivore, flexitarian, vegetarian, pescatarian, vegan or anywhere in between. We will encourage and support you on your personal journey.

Vegan House Swapping - Let's introduce house swapping into the vegan psyche, and have a look at what house swapping is all about.

Vegan Job Board - Vegan Mainstream offers a variety of services for entrepreneurs, authors, chefs, personal trainers, coaches and business owners. Through one-on-one marketing consulting, online training, and local business workshops we help individuals launch and maintain successful vegan businesses. - is a community-maintained, worldwide guide to vegetarian and vegan restaurants and shopping.
