There are not many products out there designed specifically for vegans. It can be very difficult at times for people who have made the decision to be vegan to make sure that their lives are completely animal product or byproduct free. However, the internet has allowed those products available to them to be found easily, quickly and cheaply. For instance there are even vegan friendly custom orthopedics that have now made it onto the market to make sure that people do not have to sacrifice their beliefs systems for their health. On top of that, they can also be sure to satisfy any religious beliefs that people may have regarding their clothing as well.
There are now manufacturers out there who have made the conscious effort to supply products for all people, regardless of their belief system. They have reviewed the materials that they use in both their design and production process to ensure that they are able to provide vegan friendly custom orthopedics. For instance, there are insoles designed now that features only three materials, EVA foam, hard plastic, and glue. Of course the first question typically revolves around the glue, because classically there are many types of glue that in one form or another, have some animal part associated with it. However, some manufacturers use only an acetone based adhesive that has no animal parts at all.
The next two materials in a pair of vegan friendly custom orthopedics are the EVA foam and the plastic. Plastic, we can cross off the list almost immediately because they very rarely actually include animal parts. The EVA, or ethylene-vinyl acetate, foam is an entirely synthetic material produced in a lab. Therefore the last question has to do with the dyes that are used to color the material, which for all of the parts involved, are all also synthetic in origin, or are a result of the manufacturing process.
So, in the past couple of years, vegan friendly custom orthopedics are making their way onto the internet. They can be reached by everyone, all over the world, and at any time. Furthermore, with advancements in technology, the insoles themselves are easier and cheaper than ever to produce and subsequently the customer is able to get the insoles for cheaper as well. All people, whether they are religious, secular, meat eating or vegan, can now purchase vegan friendly custom orthopedics online and for cheap.
