    Actress Natalie Portman launched a vegan footwear line this year (pictured). You'll find even more animal-friendly alternatives at Ethical Planet in Evanston.

    From the Moo Shoes on your feet to the tofu in your fridge, friends admire your compassion for animals.

    Then they order a burger.

    Start evangelizing your animal-friendly lifestyle this weekend, as November 1st kicks off “Vegan Month.”

    Show your shopaholic friends that vegans are stylish too by taking them to Ethical Planet in Evanston. Owner Fran Horvath carries a variety of animal-friendly accessories, like these cute black flats made of synthetic leather or this hemp change purse.

    The rest of the store is brimming with gifts, groceries, T-shirts, supplements – you name it, you can probably find the vegan version of it here.

    Best of all (and very serendipitous) Ethical Planet is celebrating its second anniversary on Saturday. That means free stuff for you and your soon-to-be vegan friends at the store (1110 W. Davis Street) from 11a.m. to 5p.m.
