What Is A Lifestyle Vegan? || Mayim Bialik

Hey, it’s Mayim, and I’m a lifestyle vegan. What does that mean? In addition to not eating animals and animal by-products, I also don’t wear them. No wool, no leather, and no cashmere. Sigh. I love cashmere. This video explains more about being a lifestyle vegan and why I feel it’s important for my own life and belief system.

You may know me as Amy Farrah Fowler from The Big Bang Theory, or from Blossom, but hopefully, these videos allow you to get to know me better as Mayim, too! Subscribe to my channel for video updates. I upload new videos every Thursday!

    Vegan leather is made from polyester and polyester is made from crude oil. It’s like putting plastic on your body. And remember how much plastic we have on our earth polluting the natural environment getting into our oceans. Yes Washing polyester actually contaminates our water with plastic micro particles which gets into our oceans and into the bodies of our marine animals. So if you care about animals, you won’t wear anything synthetic. So where does that leave you? Wearing only cotton? Or maybe incorporating ethically sourced leather and wool?

    How can I tell if something is made from animal products if it isn’t explicitly listed on the product

    I am not vegan, but I think you have an excellent personality and are very amiable. You explain without attacking me, which helps me. Change is difficult and ichanging my identity by changing my beliefs and actions is not easy, but you do a very good job of presenting the idea being vegan, which is a great idea. We are living in a very product driven world that throw people aside, so why not animals or our health? Thank you for all of your content.

    Right now I'm vegetarian, not vegan. But in the others products that are not for eat them, I trying to not buy or use anything that was made from animals or parts of them (like silk, leather, wool, cachemire, etc… ) or tested in animals.

    I may not be a vegan but I find common among us all is compassion for animals so putting all differences aside lets join hands in hands to fight against factory farms for carrying out worst torture on animals and breeding pandemics.

    I'm vegan and LOVE hearing that you are the totally full out committed vegan that I am. It's not always easy. But I feel it's one of the best things I do.

    If I am 100% honest, I'm not fond of veganism in general. I agree with the ideals surrounding better treatment of animals and reducing air pollution, of course, BUT I worry about the animals that have symbiotic relationships with humans as a result of thousands of years of domestication from humans utilizing the resources they provide as stationary civilizations and farming began. I understand and applaud avoiding buying animal products from companies that treat their livestock poorly, but I don't understand avoiding animal products entirely – even from reputable companies and small businesses – and not having to actively ignore how horrific and dangerous it is for sheep to go unsheered, dairy cows to go unmilked, work animals to not be given the mental and physical stimulation they were born to crave. Honey bees in the US all have bee keepers (unless they've made it onto the invasive species list here).
    I know not everyone necessarily can actually purchase from good providers but I am not comfortable allowing cared for animals to end up being neglected because the money isn't there anymore to care for them. I don't feel comfortable not giving my business to animal-friendly animal product producers knowing that if they have to close down, well cared for animals will be needlessly euthanized. The idea of potentially destroying our ecosystem more because of the higher potential for new invasive species if a farm has to close because we stopped buying animal products entirely scares me. The families who own and work these farms, small shops, coffee house, markets, etc possibly losing their entire livelihoods because society cuts out all animal products no matter where they came from.
    While I HIGHLY doubt that will ever be the reality, it is something I am concerned about. I grew up in a "cow town" in northeastern Massachusetts, my grandfather grew up on a dairy farm in Biddeford, Maine, and I know so many people who keep chickens in their back yards for the eggs and meat. I promise, the horror stories about animal products are not necessarily the norm, at least if you shop from mom&pop shops and the likes if able. I don't think completely ignoring why we have these animal products avaliable to us in the first place is the best solution. I don't support veganism, though I do enjoy vegan products and support adding them to our options, but not replacing. I support ethically sourced.

    What do you do when someone gifts you something that doesn't work with a vegan lifestyle because they don't know you are living this kind of life?

    I am at the 99% vegan stage but I'm also pregnant with my first. We are fully vegan at home but now with being pregnant, sometimes I have to buy vegetarian if I'm travelling/out but I've struggled with balancing the need to eat with wanting to just wait until I can find something! I'm also trying to transition to be more of a lifestyle vegan and it's particularly hard to get through to family and friends that I don't want that lambskin for the baby that they all believe is the best thing ever and I'm trying to be environmentally conscious so I don't want to buy plastic/mass produced toys. I agree with some of the comments on this thread, it's a struggle to balance vegan products with environmentally friendly products depending on whether their synthetic – I'm still in the research phase but I need to buy work boots and I am determined to find a decent non-leather option 🙂

    I've been vegan curious for some time now. In Cape Town there's very few places that has a variety of vegan friendly menus and I often wonder how difficult or even easy it would be to switch my diet. But having a vegan lifestyle is definitely a new idea to me. Thank you for enlightening me, Dr Bialik.

    My ex is Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian. I am an Omnivore. She and I coexisted with no problem, I respected her restrictions, and it included only the animal products that involved the killing of an animal. She was concerned about living conditions for chickens and milk cows, but after touring farms, ranches, and dairies over her life, she came to find that farmers consider their animals as their livelihood. These creatures provide the products that put their kids through college, and they are treated humanely and with respect. It is few and far between you find a farm or ranch that mistreats its livestock- it actually costs them money.
    I respect your commitment to your lifestyle veganism. I find it extreme for somebody like myself, but I hold no negative judgement on your personal choice. It's good to know, just in case I desired to send you a silk garment. One does not think about how it is produced by animals (insects belong to the Animal Kingdom).
