First, the term plant-based refers to a person’s diet alone. That means, that individuals’ personal diet, rather than a collective diet. A plant-based diet refers to a diet that is primarily plant-based. However, individuals who are plant-based will also include animal-derived products in their lifestyle which includes clothing, shoes, accessories, or household goods.
Being vegan is a lifestyle change, rather than a simple change in your diet. Veganism embraces the idea of avoiding the consumption of all and any animals or animal-derived products. This includes vegan clothes, vegan shoes, and vegan household cleaners. Aside from products that are derived from animals, vegans will stray away from all products that have been tested on animals.
