Charlotte Willis looks at what defines us as vegans

Being vegan in the 21st century. It’s a lifestyle often riddled with multi-dimensional complexities, as well as unspoken social rules and expectations. How do we define such a complex, multi-faceted term? And if indeed we can define veganism, should we be willing to be flexible in welcoming others whose characterisations and lifestyle choices don’t exactly match our ideal concept of the “vegan”?

Redefine your definition

Vegan. Noun. A person who does not eat or use animal products. This definition is the very first item that pops up if you type “define vegan” into Google. Now, that seems like a pretty simple, clear and meaningful definition of veganism to me. And as reluctant as I am to go pigeonholing myself into a societal classification, this description seems pretty spot on. I don’t, to my knowledge, use or consume any animals or animal products – therefore I am vegan. So far, so good. But that’s about as simple a definition as we’ll come across in this exploration of what it means to be vegan. For reasons of morality, convenience and ethical standpoint, it seems everyone’s definition of living life as a vegan, is as unique and individual as the person who identifies as such.
