Two sides of the same leaf

I have two dear friends, one vegan, and one vegetarian. One has cats and the other has dogs. Both have been patiently teaching me about veganism and cruelty-free products. Both love animals but do have opposing views.

One won’t buy any products or work for any cruelty-free company if the parent company is not cruelty-free. She will not give her money to those companies.

The other will purchase items from the cruelty-free with a non-cruelty-free parent company because she believes that by doing that, she will demonstrate to the non-cruelty-free parent company that investing in products that are not tested on animals generates revenue.

Who do you agree with and why?

I’d love to hear your opinion, please leave your comments.

    I agree with them both. The world is a complicated place. If your goal is to influence the world, then you may need to be flexible. But if your goal is merely to live your life according to your beliefs and you don’t care to influence others, then you can be as strict as you like. It depends on what you hope to achieve.
