UK provides animal-free alternatives to vegan inmates

As part of recent measures passed to protect inmates' rights, an estimated 500 vegan detainees in UK prisons are now able to purchase food and toiletries that do not contain animal products.

Items include soya milk, nuts, seeds, tofu, vegan soap, shampoo and toothpaste. Many thanks, United Kingdom, for making these meaningful options available to vegan inmates.

May your thoughtful provision serve to enhance harmony and eco-friendly lifestyles for all detainees.
