In short: the products mentioned in this article provide animal agribusiness with virtually no extra income. If you object to animal byproducts showing up in everyday consumer items, the best way to fight back is to do whatever you can to encourage people to stop eating meat, dairy products, and eggs. In a vegan world, there will be no tallow used to vulcanize bicycle tires.
For most of us, winning over meat eaters is best accomplished by doing things like sharing vegan-friendly stories on our Facebook walls and participating in programs like Vegan Outreach’s Adopt A College campaign. (Thanks, Matt.) Link.
