      To get serious about having a vegan home, you must look beyond the
      pantry and the wardrobe. A large number of home improvement products
      contain animal ingredients. Unfortunately, it is hard to identify all
      these animal byproducts because most home improvement products are not
      required to list ingredients.

      To avoid animal ingredients, consult the Vegan Society's Animal Free
      Shopper directory or look for the "no animal ingredients" label.
      However, note that there is no independent verification of the "no
      animal ingredients" label. It may mean different things to different
      manufacturers, and it does not guarantee an avoidance of animal
      testing.

      Here is a partial list of products that may contain animal
      ingredients. In many cases, synthetic ingredients or petroleum
      products have largely replaced the animal ingredients, but these
      substitutes may be a greater concern for some eco-conscious
      homeowners.
