When we opened our doors in 1995, we were the very first company to offer a comprehensive selection of high-quality, completely cruelty-free vegan (non-animal-derived) products. We began with a very small storefront and just two employees in Bethesda, Maryland, and about a year later we put together our first mail-order catalog. Since then we've grown steadily, but we remain true to our goal: to make it easier for people to follow a vegan lifestyle by offering the widest variety of quality vegan products all in one place. We're the one-stop vegan shop!
We moved to our Rockville, Maryland, location in 2000--and not a moment too soon! As our range of products grew to include our own brands, such as No Bull footwear and VeganSweets food items, we found ourselves needing a lot more space. We now have as much storefront space as we did in Bethesda, but with three times as much space in the back warehouse area to keep stock and prepare mail orders.
We work hard to bring our customers the very latest and best in vegan products, searching out hard-to-find items and, in some cases, even manufacturing products ourselves when we can't find a suitable option that's already available. We meticulously investigate the derivation of all ingredients and components of the products we sell, and we do not offer goods from companies that test on animals. We are all vegans ourselves, and we can relate to our customers' experiences in meeting the demands of a more compassionate lifestyle. In addition to our commitment to being animal-friendly, we strive to maintain the highest ethical standards in every other aspect of our business. We refuse to carry products manufactured under oppressive labor conditions, and we re-use and recycle boxes and other shipping materials for our mail orders.
We strive to bring convenience and ease to the vegan lifestyle by offering cruelty-free essentials and hard-to-find alternatives to animal-based products. Tired of reading labels or researching ingredients? We've done the work for you -- so shop confidently and enjoy!
