Quick Fixes

Cow’s Milk :- As is true elsewhere in the world, cow’s milk can  easily be replaced by a variety of other cruelty free milks! Try Soy milk, rice milk, bran milk, oatmeal milk, peanut milk and almond milk for a new burst of flavour! The most commonly available soy milk is Sofit, followed by SoyFresh. Another great option is Staeta SoyMilk, that comes in many interesting flavours. Most market places will keep one or the other.  These milks offer easy replacements for a morning cup of tea, to condensed deserts such as Kheer. However, most plant based milks are really easy to make at home! Keep an eye on our recipes section for more on that!

Ice Creams
With an increased awareness regarding harmful effects milk and milk products, dairy free ice creams are coming up in various parts of the country. The White Cub makes only dairy free ice creams while other places like Lean Chef have dairy free options.  Ice candies are however, completely vegan and can be enjoyed guilt free!


Whilst unheard of, India has more than 45 organic and non-animal tested brands! It’s best to check their ingredients to ensure that these are completely cruelty free! Find them here.


Modern day and technology have rendered leather to be used to a bare minimum. Most products now a days are made with PU (polyurethane) leather. To be sure of what you’re buying select brands like Baggit and Senso Vegetarian shoes. Another brand to consider is Ecowings, that has recently entered the market with vegan leather.
