Vegan brands and products are showing up everywhere, from expected places like Whole Foods Market to more unexpected places such as Walmart. In addition to vegan products showing up in many mainstream stores, online shopping has made it incredibly easy, affordable and relatively accessible to live a vegan lifestyle. With so many vegan brands and products available from burgers and cheese to shoes, wallets and even supplements, it can be hard to discern what products are worth investing in. Whether it’s the question of “does it taste amazing?”  Or “will these shoes last more than one season?” It can be hard to figure out what products to try. Additionally, more consumers are increasingly aware of and concerned with a company's ethics, does it pay it’s workers fairly, does it support sustainable practices, does it offer products that are making a meaningful impact in the world? 

We understand the desire to purchase products that are not only ethical and meaningful, but will be worth your dollar and last long! We’ve rounded up our top ten favorite vegan companies that are offering amazing products in a variety of categories such as food, shoes, jewelry and supplements. These companies all stand out because they offer exceptional products. Exceptional products to us mean a variety of different things, such as sourcing organic ingredients or materials, using sustainable, eco-friendly manufacturing practices, being outspoken advocates for animals, or simply offering products that can change and shape industries in ways that vegan products have yet to. 

How We Picked Our Top 10 Vegan Brands

While there are a lot of fantastic vegan companies with great products, we only choose our current favorites. We’ve included a list of links at the bottom to share some of our past articles highlighting some of our favorite vegan brands and products in case you’re seeking out something in particular. In a time when veganism is so available and accessible, it’s time we ask more of companies, to ask them to go the extra mile to produce items that not only make a difference in the world but also contribute to a more sustainable way of living, even if that’s just making exceptionally good organic vegan ice cream to help people make more compassionate choices.
