When someone decides to go vegan, terminology can be confusing. There are vegans, ethical vegans, plant-based dieters, and plant-based lifestylist to name just a few. Add to that the different types of foods being brought to market, and the confusion increases.
Enter an ethical word smith, Sandra Nomoto aka The Content Doctor, to the rescue. Sandra is committed to clearing up the Language of Veganism.

Introduction to Veganism
The Documentary Earthlings was Sandra’s introduction to the cruelty animals are subjected to and why a vegan lifestyle should be the goal. Over a period of time, Sandra replaced meat and dairy with more ethical choices. Going full vegan in 2018, Sandra has made it her mission to raise awareness about the vegan lifestyle by working with various business.
It was during meditation that she had what she calls her “ah ha” moment, realizing she could work with vegan and cruelty free businesses. Based on her extensive background, the focus was a natural next step.
Upon making the decision to move in this direction, she went through her database to let past and present clients know what she was up to.
Her experience has been that one can have a nice collaboration between being vegan and their professional life. Many vegans are finding that what they do professionally aligns very nicely with the vegan movement. Whether it be speaking, consulting, marketing, writing,
Cruelty free expands to many areas of our personal and professional life. More and more businesses are making the switch based on their own ethics and market demand.
