Vegan is often considered synonymous with hippy and animal lover, someone who has chosen to give up all animal products for the sake of the welfare of their animal friends. Vegetarian is considered often a milder version of vegan, someone who doesn’t want to kill for their meal but doesn’t mind using animals to get milk and eggs. The truth is far more complex. A section, possibly a vast one, chose to go vegan or vegetarian for different reasons and chose to adopt the animal loving attitudes, because they could now without issue stand on the ethical pedestal.
Here is the list I have compiled from my personal knowledge and research. In the following weeks, I intend to go into more detail for each one. If you have personal experience, please let me know. If you have any other reasons you know of, please do tell me.
