Whether you’re celebrating Dry January or Sober October, just trying to cut down on consumption, or choosing a lifetime of sobriety, nixing alcohol is commendable. However, using the bladders of killed fish or the boiled skin, tendons, ligaments, or bones of cows, pigs, or other animals (i.e., gelatin) for filtration purposes is not. It’s cruel, archaic, and gross—as is sipping on congealed secretions robbed from exploited cows or swallowing the hard-earned, stolen fruits of honeybees’ labor. Just like some alcoholic beer, wine, and spirits, certain non-alcoholic beverages haven’t caught up with consumer demand and still contain these animal-derived ingredients. So check out our guide to vegan, non-alcoholic drinks instead:
