While Veganuary is observed during the whole month of January, World Vegan Day is observed annually on November 1. A calendar event originating in England in 1994, vegans across the globe celebrate their lifestyle choice and use this day as an opportunity to advocate the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle.
Over the years we’ve published many articles on veganism and plant-based living but this year we wanted to curate a list of some kickass brands and folks creating animal-cruelty free crafts that we never thought possible. Salute to these rulebreakers giving vegans a chance to live their values and pushing for a peaceful, compassionate and animal-friendly world through their products.
Play music with a vegan guitar
You lift the guitar up from where it’s sitting and immediately, there’s spell on your fingers as you strum and pluck and fondle the strings as you play the tunes. Suddenly, a rapport between the guitarist and the instrument is in the air.
But a deeper and more soulful connection between them becomes more than just the sound produced when the guitar that had been crafted is created with compassion and respect. A regular guitar often uses animal bone for the guitar nuts, saddles and pins. The inlay on regular guitars can be made from mother of pearl and abalone shells. The glue that is used to seal things together contain the substance called casein which is an adhesive made from milk protein.
Cue Bedell Guitars, a business making handcrafted guitars that promote vegan lutherie; there are no animal byproducts in their vegan guitar range. Plus, they use sustainably-sourced materials too. And when guitars are made with love for all life as Bedell Guitars are, there’s more magic in the acoustics, there’s wizardry charging from instrument to hands and there is sorcery in the air. The music will never fade because the sound of respect and kindness reverberates in the air.
