Bank on it
As a vegan living in the modern world, it is near impossible to not contribute in some way to the exploitation of animals. We can lessen our contribution by supporting ethical companies, especially those with a clear statement on animal welfare.
Meet The Co-operative Bank.
The bank just released its updated Ethical Policy and I am thrilled to see animal welfare receive a mention.
One of Co-operative‘s seven goals at the heart of its Ethical Policy is:
– Protecting animal welfare
We will not provide banking services to organisations which are involved in animal testing of cosmetics or household products or whose activities significantly degrade endangered animals’ habitats.
I don’t know about you, but I find this to be incredibly heartening reading in a bank document.

Who do you bank with? Does veganism inform your banking choices?
