My Journey to a Vegan Lifestyle
Updated: Mar 19
It started pretty slowly. I was a teenager and my older brother came home one day and stated he would no longer be eating meat. We all laughed as this was my brother that had made impossible declarations in the past - I will wash my own laundry, keep my room clean, do my homework on time, etc. But he did seem passionate about the decision. Driven by the desire to reduce his environmental impact, he actually was sincere and over the period of about six months, my entire family transitioned to a plant-based lifestyle. While my parents always cooked healthily and we were active children, we never considered a plant-based lifestyle until my brother came home with his spontaneous decision.
This decision was life-altering! Not only did our menu change, but our lifestyle also changed. In fact, we chose to minimize our use of disposable dishes and cutlery and chose sundries that supported our vegan lifestyle.
Our family-based business was focused on creating skincare products that were natural and environmentally friendly, but when we were searching for a soap alternative that was natural and organic but could not find anything commercially available. It was part of this quest that Whole Naturals Castile Soap was born!
Tremendous research into choosing the finest organic, pure, and plant-derived ingredients, we developed a formulation that met all of our standards. With each step of the journey, we consulted with third-party certifiers to ensure that every additive and essential oil does not contain animal products or byproducts and that have not been tested on animals. In fact, our Castile Soap carries the Certified Vegan logo.
When you purchase our Castile soap, you can be confident that you're using a gentle, yet strong soap. While it's gentle on your family's skin, it's an equally powerful and efficient cleaner that can be used in every nook and cranny around your home.
So whether you're on the hunt for ways to make subtle or dramatic changes to your lifestyle, choose Whole Naturals Castile Soap is a great way to start!!
