Charlie at Brontosaurus
Boo's Kitchen, Mumbles
is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude - as far as
is possible and practical - all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty
to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by
extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free
alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment.
In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all
products derived wholly or partly from animals.
