    Call for Vegan Banknotes

    It does make you think. I ever knew they used tallow in the production of filthy lucre


    https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/mon...egan-banknotes


    I wonder if there was a way pork could be somehow incorporated as well?
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    I usually find I can get more food by swapping the notes for goods. Eating the notes direct just doesn't cut it somehow...they stick in your teeth too.

    They use Gelatin in Wine to filter out the sediment.
    Rennet made from calves stomachs obviously is the normal way to make cheese.
    There is a flavouring made out of Beaver musk that they use pretty extensively for Vanillia and other flavouring (i am not making that up) Castoreum https://www.huffpost.com/entry/beave...b09bf44a9ed259
    Casein (a milk protein) was often used in early plastics such as pool balls and is still used as a glue (beerl abels)
    Commercial pastry is loaded with lard Tallow.
    Worcester sauce has Fish in it. Red hearing?

    Google turned up these
    Sugar
    The refining processes for both white and brown sugar often use bone char, a granular material from animal ashes. It gives sugar its white colour.

    Condoms
    Traditionally, condom production has included the addition of casein, a protein found in animal milk, which acts as a lubricant. Some brands, like GLYDE, however, have gone vegan.

    Red candy
    Red cochineal beetles, when dried and crushed, produce a powder called carmine, used as an all-encompassing dye in red foods like candy, ice cream, and yogurt. Though it previously slipped under the radar as “artificial colouring ,” the FDA has required manufacturers to explicitly list carmine on food labels since early 2011.
    Edible shellac, also known as confectioner’s glaze, coats most hard, shiny candy, with the notable exception of M&Ms. It’s made from the excretions of female lac bugs (Kerria lacca).

    Some orange juice
    Many companies now supplement orange juice with Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish. Such ingredients are broadly defined as “neutraceuticals,” or food-derived additives that are meant to increase consumer health.

    Nail polish
    Shimmery cosmetics, like nail polish or lipstick, contain guanine (sometimes listed as “pearl essence”), one of the four base components of RNA and DNA. Companies obtain it from fish (notably, herring) scales.

    Beer
    Guinness contains Isinglass, a chemical found in fish bladders. Isinglass gathers stray yeast cells during the fermenting process and solidifies them into them a mass, which floats to the bottom of the barrel for removal.

    Toothpaste
    Toothpaste gets its texture from glycerin, although it can come from plants, it is much less expensive and more likely to be taken from extracting the fat from animal bones. Eww!! That’s like brushing your teeth with lard. Since most labels simply state “glycerin” as an ingredient, the only way to know which type is used in a product is to do your research. Not feeling so minty fresh anymore? For vegan-friendly products try Tom’s of Maine.

    Shampoo and Conditioner
    There are numerous animal products that can be found in shampoo and conditioner. When you read “Panthenol”, “Amino Acids”, or “Vitamin B”, to name a few, it can be animal or plant derived – making it hard to determine. On top of this, there is a new trend of using products containing keratin, which is protein from hooves, horns, and animal hair. It can also be obtained from turtle shells, claws or scales, depending on the strength or hardness desired by the manufacturer. Look for cruelty-free symbols, such as a rabbit, to be certain a product has no animal byproducts

    Soap
    As you are preparing to go running from the room and wash away the remnants of dead animals clinging to your body, stop and check your soap first. More likely than not, it contains glycerin and casein, both of which derive from animals.

    Deodorant
    By now you’ve probably already thought about the plastic case that houses the deodorant, but the deodorant itself is made up of more than toxic chemicals. It also contains beeswax, glycerin and perfumes (remember the animal scent sacs). However, there’s no reason to turn into a hippie and walk around all stinky. There are vegan-friendly deodorants available, which are not only cruelty-free, but much safer for humans as well.

    Far too logical a comment for the mentally challenged. Fucking vegans.

    If vegan-ism is so good for you and we went to vegan banknotes, will the local ATM give me more than I ask for, cause it must be good for me?

    By the sound of it you could use it to grease the hotplate as well as the palm of the maitre d' at the country club
    Money has always been used as a sexual lubricant how else would trump get laid

    Might as well add any plant products grown in a mono culture. To achieve the profitable yields and quality fields are effectively sterilised to remove competition and pests. That's insects, birds, invertebrates and cute little mammals.

    I'm a black belt at annoying vegan preachers.

    Baileys contains animal products, to emulsify it.

    The list is epic. Broach a discussion on the effects of industry which produce vegan products then discuss the actual production of the ingredients and their relative nutritional value, you know, vegan sausages.

    Who would even think of partaking in Baileys without Milk
    i had soya milk once thought for a nano sec this was okay then the bitter aftertaste hit me.
    On the plus side legumes like soya makes boobies grow bigger.
