Who knew that most ceramics aren’t vegan? We certainly didn’t. Most know that bone china contains burned animal bones, but ceramics contain animal parts as well. Many glazes contain bone ash from chickens and horses, for example. At Eco Dogs and Cats, we offer locally made ceramics that are entirely vegan (clay, glaze and tools). They are also nontoxic and lead free, so they are safe for everyone.
In this civilization built on the exploitation of nonhuman animals, it seems impossible to free ourselves from possessions that involved cruelty somewhere down the line. Tires, pharmaceuticals, batteries, glue – we’re surrounded by products made from parts of animals. All that matters is that we do our best to not inflict harm on others, and to try to change the system that creates speciesist exploitation in the first place. We can talk about it over a delicious vegan meal using our vegan ceramic dishes!
