The Double Check Vegan Ingredient Checker is the brainchild/lovechild of Rebecca Schiffman.
With over 2200 cosmetic, food additive and pharmaceutical ingredients indexed, it is the world’s most extensive database of animal ingredients.
Here are the ambitious goals of Double Check Vegan:
- to make it easier for consumers to find out which products contain animal ingredients.
- to spread awareness of how common hidden animal ingredients are.
- to spread awareness of alternatives to animal ingredients.
- to encourage consumers to contact companies and request vegan products in the hopes of more companies adopting vegan formulas.
- to make slaughterhouses less profitable by shrinking the market for their byproducts and coproducts.
- to reduce the suffering of animals through consumer power.
Double Check Vegan Ingredient Checker Inspiration
Rebecca was inspired to create Double Check Vegan when she couldn’t find an existing tool to assist her in checking ingredients quickly.
Plus, she claims to love data-entry!
Double Check Vegan is an awesome tool for everyone!
Vegans, Vegetarians, Flexitarians and even the Vegan-curious can all benefit from this great tool!
* Rebecca is also a musician!
I really enjoyed her 2019 release Every Moment Lasts Forever.
The title, as you totally know, is a reference to the theory of time posited by Tralfamadorians in Vonnegut’s classic Slaughterhouse Five.
PRO TIP: Search for vegan handbags and vegan wallets available at one of the many online vintage shops.
