Welcome to Veganism Savvity - a worldwide vegan community. The word "vegan" was coined in 1944 by Donald Watson. Here is the definition of the word vegan:

"The word veganism denotes a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude — as far as is possible and practicable — all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals."
