Why have a Vegan Products Directory? (see end of page)
If I don’t have any leads written at present for a conceived category, I may just leave the search words (to put in to a search engine) that I would use for further investigation, which is where I stopped my own investigation. For example, see guitar
http://veganmercantile.com/ is the closest thing I have found so far like what I want. Just I want way more categories. Really good umbrella idea
is a good start to finding good sites, to look for products, but this actual site has very broad categories, requiring addition work for the searcher, to find the actual product
http://www.cowsarecool.com/alt4.html is a non-linked, directory, which lists types of products, and leather-alternative/veggie brands thereof. Self described it is an easy-to-use list of companies organized by type of product (both link are the same)
For a non-vegan but environmentally friendly (if that is possible) example, see
http://www.cowsarecool.com/alt.html for lists of vegan companies
http://www.veganconsumer.uklinux.net/links.htm page of vegan links
another page of links
I want there to be a google-like box, where you type in any product name, and you get leads on the most vegan products available. And the key is, for every product, there is a lead. None of this “Request Not Found” stuff. Even for stuff that doesn’t exist, like marshmallows. [updated We got them back!] For things like these, we can post a recipe for marshmallows, and a wanted sign, for opportunistic people, and companies to target. (obsolete example, now that marshmallows are back!)
Furthermore, I would like to have this list direct people through the least possible amount of middlemen, resellers, etc.
And we should have some way of getting anything vegan. There should be a price, and an online order form, maybe a phone number
Maybe have a feature that asks what product someone is trying to substitute for, to link to the various options.

Investigating warranty, construction, and actual user feedback from using the Viking, and Sur La Table brands of stainless steel cookware, as well as the ideal products
The All-Clad, made in USA, (not their China-produced, less expensive
pieces), are the best I’ve found to date. Still need to know if their steel is vegan. Also would like to know if the vegsource comment is true, about steel leeching with the cooking of acidic foods, such as tomatoes, because stainless steel is mixed with nickel.

1. ALMOST IDEAL (the company also produces animal-ingredient models!), BUT I HAVEN’T TESTED: Fuchs Ekotec Replaceable Head Toothbrushes (has minimal replacements (reduce), but watch out for their “natural bristle,” which is “bristles are carefully harvested from a special breed of boar using a process similar to sheering sheep”) see http://www.internatural-alternative-health.com/ingr/ingr150610.cfm
2. http://www.recycline.com/ Weird handle one, (recycles). Have to recycle the whole thing, every time you get a new one (handle + bristles)

The following is from this link, and they disclose all their ingredients, though I have not seen them address being organic, biodegradable or specifically vegan.
Block Bros. Block Oil is a unique blend of oils that penetrate, condition, and seal all natural wood surfaces. It keeps wood from cracking, drying, or absorbing food odors. The lemon oil formula containing vitamin E will never become rancid. Our Block Oil also protects knives and cutlery from corrosion. Only the purest ingredients enable us to produce this safe, natural finish. Use Block Bros. Block Oil every four to eight weeks to restore and protect wood surfaces in your kitchen and home.
040302: Organic cutting board oil?
Wood oils: Mineral Oil for wooden kitchen products, to avoid eventual cracking,… (I got Block Oil brand, because although it wasn’t organic, one other had beeswax, and the other didn’t disclose the ingredients, and I really needed it that day.)
accessed 040303 155am, says makers use a variety of oils, all of which we ruled out for
various reasons. Vegetable, olive, peanut and walnut oils can become rancid,
build up on the surface and/or leave an odor or taste that can affect delicate
foods. Originally we tried plain
mineral oil, which is
and brings out the
wood's natural color but provides little moisture resistance.
After one or two washings the wood becomes dull and dry.
Since Bob had been a beekeeper he was familiar with beeswax which is naturally food-safe. Blended with mineral oil, it did wonders for our new hard maple spoons. Not only did it penetrate into the wood and leave a beautiful sheen, but even after numerous washings, the spoons still looked great.
So try to find a mineral oil, and mix it with a non-bee wax (vegetable wax? I know that veganessentials carries soywax candles!)
www.VeganEssentials.com offers a furniture oil for the same price as the manufacturer (might as well help vegans make some money at the same time, and bought from vegan companies) called Sweet Cicely Furniture Oil, by Wise Ways (www.wiseways.com a company which does mention that their manufacturing farm has
“Angora rabbits that provide fluffy fiber to make wild hats and Icelandic sheep raised for their fine wool to spin and weave warm clothing.”
http://www.wiseways.com/about.html 040303 234am)
That having been said, according to that same link, this company boasts “We never test on animals, use animal tested ingredients, or synthetic chemicals or preservatives.”
According to their website, the manufacturing farm, Singing Brook Farm, is certified organic by Baystate Organic Certifiers. And so, though their product doesn’t state it, this product may be made of 100% organic ingredients, and it also maybe completely biodegradable. Then again, maybe not.
The following company, has developed furniture finish they claim to be non-toxic, though I have not found anything in English, the only language I am proficient in, describing anything about the company (i.e. to find out if they use organic ingredients,
They are touted as using “Phytochemistry w/ the Longest Experience Worldwide”

Why have a Vegan Products Directory?
Every time someone looks for the ingredients of a product, to see if it is vegan, they risk misinterpretation, and the redundancy which results from not knowing ahead of time, by recommendation, which products are ideal for them.
By knowing what you want before you get to the store, you can be surer, more conveniently.
