I THINK CRAYOLA IS VEGAN

http://www.crayola.com/for-educators/lesson-plans/lesson-plan/stop-animal-cruelty.aspx

Your "Be Kind to Animals!" message jumps out with this colorful pop-up card!

1.
Are you an animal lover? What are some ways animals are mistreated? Everyday, laboratory animals are used to test products. Some pets are not walked or fed enough. Which kinds of cruelty to animals would you like to erase?
2.
<STRONG>Cut your card</STRONG>. Keeping it folded, cut a file folder with Crayola® Scissors. Make it large enough for a pop-up inside. Across the fold in the center of the card, make two parallel cuts. Open the card and push on the tab created by the slits. The tab will stand out at right angles from the card. Fold and close the card, with the tab sticking up inside.
3.
<STRONG>Make a pop-up animal.</STRONG> On leftover file folder, draw a pet or other animal with Crayola Markers. Cut out your animal. Glue it to the tab inside the card with Crayola School Glue.
4.
<STRONG>Speak up!</STRONG> Imagine you are a mistreated animal. Write a message on the card from the animal’s viewpoint. Ask for better treatment.
5.
<STRONG> Share your animal advocacy message!</STRONG> Display cards where others can see them. Then send the cards to an appropriate address.
Benefits
•Students familiarize themselves with the issues of animal cruelty from a local to a global level.
•Students internalize their findings through the personification of an animal that could be treated cruelly by humans.
•Students construct a pop-up card to dramatize their advocacy message.
Adaptations
•As with most issues, there are several sides to using animals for experimentation. Divide the class so several groups can research and debate different viewpoints. Do you think that some advocacy groups go too far? How should testing for medicines and hum
•If you don’t want animals to be harmed in testing, how do you feel about farms that confine animals? What about wearing furs and hides? Design a questionnaire. Would people stop eating fast food fried chicken or hamburgers and wearing leather shoes to pre
•Assessment: How accurately do students describe their animals’ viewpoints? How convincing are their arguments against animal cruelty? How striking are the cards’ designs?

Crayola - ECO Ethical Shopping Rating




BRAND
Crayola
HOLDING COMPANY
Research Pending
POSITIVE RECORD
NEGATIVE RECORD

Research Pending
Research Pending





‘Research Pending’ means that The Ethical Company Organisation’s research for that particular product is currently incomplete – it is likely to be available within the next few weeks.



There are ten areas of corporate behaviour reported on by the GOOSHING ethical ratings system. The ethical ratings assessment process ranks companies according to their involvement or not in each of the following ethically sensitive arenas:-


Animal Testing
GOOSHING marks down those brands that are from companies that have any involvement in animal testing.
Animals in laboratories can endure a catalogue of appalling cruelty such as being poisoned; starved of food, water or sleep; applied with terrible skin and eye irritants; subjected to psychological stress; infected with disease; brain damaged; purposefully paralysed; surgically mutilated; irradiated; burned; gassed; force fed and electrocuted. In assessing which companies are involved in animal testing, our researchers keep track of several key authorities including BUAV (which campaigns to end animal experiments, join them at www.buav.org)

Back to top

Armaments
GOOSHING ethical ratings system marks down the scores of those companies that have some involvement in armaments or any related field.

Because of the widespread suffering, death and destruction that armaments cause across the globe, GOOSHING believes consumers have a right to know which companies are involved in any way at all in the armaments industry or associated activities. Then consumers can avoid accidentally supporting those companies through the purchase of other products from the same company group.

Several consumer brand companies do have some connection with the manufacture or supply of weapons or services or products used in the armaments industry or related fields.


Back to top

Boycott Calls
The GOOSHING ethical ratings system marks down those companies or brands that have been the subject of a boycott call (where the boycott call was made in good faith by a public interest group whose views attract significant public support)

When a company behaves particularly irresponsibly or consistently badly, campaign groups sometimes call for a boycott of its goods and services. These have proved an effective campaigning tool across the world in bringing about changes of corporate policy – and usually reflect strong public opinion.

Back to top

E.C.O Accreditation
The GOOSHING ethical ratings system rewards those companies that are members of the scheme as this is tantamount to an independently verified corporate social responsibility ethical health check.

Several Companies (for example The Ecology Building Society, Innocent Drinks and Brother UK) have chosen to join this scheme which involves a full annual corporate audit across a very wide range of ethical criteria by The Ethical Company Organisation - the people behind GOOSHING and The Good Shopping Guide. See www.ethical-company-organisation.org for more details.

Back to top

Ecological Schemes
GOOSHING's ethical rating system rewards those companies that have products which are commited to standards demanded by the following ecological schemes, which are relevant to different product sectors.

Energy Efficiency

GOOSHING’s ethical ratings system rewards those companies that have products that meet the standards set by any one of the following leading energy efficiency schemes: European Energy Label; Energy Efficiency (UK government scheme); the TCO Certificate; the Energy Star Scheme.

Every year, billions of tonnes of polluting, CO2-emmiting and climate-changing fossil fuels are needlessly burnt in power stations to generate the energy to power electrical machines that do not meet acceptable energy efficiency levels. There are several energy efficiency industry standards - such as the TCO Certificate - which are only awarded to products which adhere to certain energy efficient standards.

Organic Certification

GOOSHING's ethical ratings system rewards those consumer brand companies which have one or more certified organic products in their portfolio.

Organic farming encourages biodiversity by reducing the use of pesticides which can be harmful to both the food itself and also to wild flowers, insects and other wildlife. There are several organic standard schemes certify that the organic growers meet certain minimum criteria. And these schemes also insist on high levels of animal welfare and a reduced use of anti-biotics and hormones in everyday animal care. Organic schemes also help to keep farms GM free as they ban the use of GM products.

Back to top

Environmental Reporting
The GOOSHING ethical ratings system rewards those companies which have an environmental report or statement.

This is because it is those companies that are aware of and actively addressing their environmental impact that can reduce damage to the environment. At present, the simple existence of an environmental report or statement is enough to get the extra GOOSHING marks – however the GOOSHING research programme will soon be grading reports and giving marks accordingly.

Back to top

Fair Trade
The GOOSHING ethical scoring system rewards those companies which have one or more Fair Trade Foundation products.

A fair trade relationship between developing world producers and the buyers of commodities like tea, coffee and chocolate is increasingly key for avoiding the corporate exploitation of some of the poorest people, worldwide.

The Fair Trade Foundation runs an audit scheme which ensures that the growers or producers of goods marked with the Fair Trade mark have received a fair price for their goods. This enables more money to go back into their communities to help with everything from education to health care.

Back to top

Genetic Modification
GOOSHING marks down brands that are from companies that have any involvement in genetic engineering or related fields.

This is because many scientists believe that the simple principle of genetic modification could spell ecological disaster. The genetic modification of food is intrinsically dangerous. It involves making irreversible changes in a random manner to a complex level of life about which little is known. Progressive thinkers see it is as a very crude and imprecise process fraught with risks - it is completely different from traditional crossbreeding as it involves the transfer of genetic material between unrelated organisms.

Others say that the biotech industry’s simple aim is to make sure the world buys its food from the same handful of multinational agrochemical companies. Meanwhile, the biotech industry argues that it will help feed the world's poor - but leading third world charities - like Christian Aid - dismiss this claim.

The problem is that there are no reliable ways of quantifying the ecological risks and the growing of GM crops also threatens the wildlife food chain and the production of GM free foods.

The irony is that we don't need GM food.

Back to top

Nuclear Power
The GOOSHING ethical ratings system penalises companies that are involved in some way in the nuclear power industry and also supply or make consumer goods.

This is because, in some cases, companies or individuals involved in the nuclear power industry also have links to the production of nuclear weapons. Furthermore, there is a massive latent pollution risk attached to nuclear power - as demonstrated by the Chernobyl disaster. And the fact that radioactive waste remains dangerous for thousands of years really undermines any arguments that nuclear is clean or green – indeed the creation of such waste, whilst we have other renewable energy alternatives, can hardly be an ethical legacy for us to leave to future generations.

Back to top

Political Donations
The GOOSHING ethical ratings system marks down brands from those companies that have made political donations to any of the major political parties.

This is because it is not healthy for democracy when companies pay political parties donations in return for preferential treatment. Contracts and tax breaks should be awarded purely on their own merits – not as return favours to those companies that help finance election campaigns. For example, some argue that the fact that the aviation industry gets almost £11 billion worth of tax–breaks and hidden subsidies a year is helped by the fact that it has provided a million pounds of political donations to various political parties over the last few years.

Back to top



3.5 to 5 GOOSHING Stars represents a high corporate ethical rating.
3 GOOSHING Stars represents a medium corporate ethical rating.
2.5 to 0 GOOSHING Stars represents a low corporate ethical rating.

GOOSHING Stars are awarded on the basis of the GOOSHING ethical ratings system. This is based on a raft of research conducted by The Ethical Company Organisation in 2004.

GOOSHING Stars relate to the ethical record of the ultimate holding company behind each relevant brand. This ensures that GOOSHING works as an ethical shopping tool at company level - where your money can end up and where key corporate policy decisions are made.

vegan and vegetarian crayons

Posted by admin on Sep 15, 2009 in Uncategorized | 9 comments



So I know some people think that the whole vegan/vegetarian crayon thing is “taking it a little far” (ahem, Myles). But what can I say – I am grossed out by the thought of my son sucking on rendered pet parts. Yes, he still does chew on the crayons and suck on them even though I constantly ask him to take them out of his mouth. If you missed my previous post about learning that crayons contain stearic acid, which is made from tallow, which comes from: pigs, cows, dogs and cats (and I am totally not making up the dog and cat part) You can read it here. Anyway it turns out that finding vegan or vegetarian crayons is actually pretty hard because nobody labels them as such, and if you google it you basically come up empty handed. So that is why I am writing this post. In case there are any other inquiring minds that want to know if vegan crayons or even vegetarian crayons exist. They do!



Simon LOVES LOVES LOVES to color and right now he talks about “colors” non stop. Especially purple and orange (he doesn’t always keep them straight though).

I looked through lots of ingredients list and in the end wrote quite a few companies. In the end I found 2 sets of crayons that are stearic acid free: the Doug and Melissa Triangular Crayons (both jumbo and regular versions) and the German Stockmar Beeswax Crayons. Finding ingredient information of the Stockmar crayons proved to be the most difficult because they are made by a German company Stockmar. Major props to Betsy and Sonya from A Toy Garden who went out of their way to find out the answers to my questions and even wrote their German distributor. If you want to purchase a set (or any high quality natural toy) I highly recommend their store. They have excellent customer service and very unique products.


The Doug and Melissa crayons are made from plastic and have a bit different look and feel then your standard crayola. They actually color a bit more like a colored pencil than the traditional waxy crayon. They are very smooth and I love that they are triangular because 1) they don’t roll away and 2) they are much much easier for chubby little toddler hands to hold. The Doug and Melissa crayons are the only crayon that I could find that are 100% vegan, and yes, I got an email back from Melissa & Doug, Inc. Customer Service stating that “Yes, all of our crayons and Tallow and animal product free.” They are slightly more expensive than your typical box of crayola but they are still really affordable. Thank you Amy for suggesting them.





The Stockmar crayons are something entirely different. They are made from beeswax but no other animal by products. The color is phenomenal. I have actually never seen a crayon color this vivid. They color that comes out of them is almost closer to art pastels. You barely have to apply pressure while drawing and the brightest colors emerge. I would call them more of an “artist” crayon and boy are they nice! Thanks to Renee for suggesting them. They are also super thick and as an added bonus you can also get them as a set of sticks or rubbing bricks. I opted for the set that contains both but you can buy either the sticks or blocks in sets up to 16. These guys hold up to the reputation of all things German being high quality. They are a little more spendy but definitely worth the cost.





This made me chuckle – do you think the German word for crayon is Wachsmalblocke? Does that translate literally to “small wax block”?

So I hope that helps out anyone else who is looking for vegan or vegetarian crayons or just a set of high quality crayons. And thanks to everyone who made suggestions on where to find them. Simon is happily coloring away in fact this morning he colored on the toilet seat!

And before I forget to share this super cute video here is Simon telling all about the colors. He basically learned his colors just by coloring and I would tell him the color of the marker/crayon. Pretty soon he was pointing out purple everywhere. He still has a hard time with red, yellow, and brown but I think he is doing pretty good. Isn’t it funny though how much this kid loves purple?

Vegan

Most crayons are made with wax, colouring and tallow (animal fat). For vegetarians, vegans and animal activists, vegan crayons can be purchased. These crayons contain no tallow, but draw just as well as traditional crayons. Vegan crayons can be found online as well as in health food stores. Companies that make vegan crayons usually provide as wide of a variety of colours as wax crayon companies do.

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker
One of the ingredients is glycerine, which can come from animal fat. And I wondered about the red colouring (if it was food grade, perhaps it's made from cochineal).

A quick search produced this non-answer from the Crayola website (why did they bother posting it, as it doesn't even answer the question):

I can't find any information on whether or not they test on animals or contain animal products, but apparently they are gluten free. So... yeah.

Gotta be honest, I think your choice in markers may be taking things a little ridiculously far. But that's just me.

Oh, they're also made with recycled plastic now. Or at least the ones I just bought are. So that's a plus.

Basic Guide to Vegan Art Materials

Acrylic Paint

Acrylic paint contains color pigment + a polymer emulsion.
each individual pigment (see below) might not be vegan.
No comments:
Varnishes

Damar Varnish: from damar resin, the sap of the damar pine. The sap is collected, distilled, and separated into turpentine and the resin. The resulting crystals usually also contain embedded bugs, dried leaves, and bark (wikipedia).


No comments:
Pigments

Ivory Black/ Bone Black: charred animal bones.
Lampblack: is pure carbon and not from animals
Cochineal: a scarlet dye made from ground up female cochineal beetles.



Other commonly vegan pigments: ochre, raw umber, burnt umber, burnt sienna, cadmium yellow, zinc oxide, gamboge, indigo, madder, cobalt blue, naphthol crimson and diozine.

If a pigment reads "Cobalt (Hue)", for instance, that means that it is not real cobalt, and could be made from an unknown ingredient.

Here's a link to one helpful Watercolor Color ingredient chart
No comments:
Watercolor + Gouche

Watercolor is primarily made of color pigment + Gum Arabic: The natural secretion of the acacia tree which is used as a binding agent in many liquid media. It improves the bonding properties of the ingredients in inks and watercolors, enabling them to stick to paper, and it helps to maintain a stable dispersion of pigment particles in water as the film of wash dries.
+ Ox gall: obtained from cows, used as the wetting agent, synthetic wetting agents are also available.

Gouche is watercolor pigment + opaque white pigment(often chalk) + a watercolor binder (made with gum arabic) + plasticizer(glycerin and/or dextrin) + preservative

Chalk: soft, white, porous sedimentary rock, a form of limestone composed of the mineral calcite.
No comments:
Ink + Charocoal

Sepia: substance traditionally derived from squid and cuttlefish.

India Ink or Chinese Ink: carbon or lampblack pigment + shellac binder.

Shellac: insect secretions


Charcoal is normally made from vines and willow but can also be bone char
Graphite: mineral.
Conte Crayon: iron oxides, carbon black, titanium dioxide, clay (kaolin) and a binder (cellulose ether).

Copic Markers and Pens claim to be vegan: http://copicmarker.com/faq/#nogo
No comments:
Paper

Sizing: Sizing is applied to paper in the papermaking process to make sheets less porous. Without sizing, paper would react to moisture like a blotter. The type and amount of sizing applied to paper varies with each type based on the desired working properties. Drawing paper is sized for surface strength, helping protect the surface for erasing. Watercolor paper is sized to help produce a consistent wash as well as help the scrubbing and layering of colors.

"Strathmore does NOT use any animal products as part of the sizing process. The use plant-based and synthetic sizing"

and Yupo Paper: 100% polypropylene, suitable for watercolor and drawing.

Traditionally, vellum was made from the skin of calves, goats and lambs. Vellum has come to describe a high rag (cotton) paper, usually with a creamy white color and smooth surface comparable to traditional vellum. Today the term vellum is often describes a very clear translucent paper with a smooth surface.
No comments:
Oil Paint

Rabbit Skin Glue: This sizing glue is used as a ground for oil painting, generally applied to linen canvas to shrink it around the stretcher. There is no synthetic alternative. Polyvinyl acetate can be used as a ground for oil painting (should be applied to both sided of the canvas), but does not shrink canvas tight as it dries.






1 comment:
Home Vegan materials do not contain animal products nor utilize them in the production process.

Ideally, using vegan art materials would imply obtaining them within an economy of free exchange between individuals (no compulsory labor for humans or non-humans).
