I was wondering the same thing myself? I think either one is or one isnt vegan or vegetarian.
I am not entirely sure if I should use the title vegan. I eat completely vegan however I do still use leather items I had prior to eliminating animal products from my diet.
I am torn as to wether or not to throw away the items or just use them until they are worn out and replace with non animal products. specifically I am talking about a pair of Dr. Martens I have had for a long time and an wallet I have had for 3 years. I do feel a bit like a hypocrite but do not want to be wasteful either.
