Where to Buy Your Vegan Condoms In LA
Late last week brought the opening of Locali, a small convenience store on Franklin catering to consumers' need for all animal-free products. For some, like blogger Quarrygirl, this store is a godsend, who says "seriously, this place is too good to be true, and exactly what this city needed."
In addition to all the food products from local and sustainable suppliers, Locali is where you can get your hands on vegan condoms. They stock the Glyde brand of condoms--which, is a plus for vegans but not actually in the spirit of "locally-sourced" since they are imported from Australia. Most consumers of Glyde condoms purchase them online (via the Sensual Vegan or other similar sites), but now Angelenos in the market can pop into this new cruelty-free, eco-friendly version of 7-11 and pick up a packet in person, and as a bonus, enjoy what Quarry Girl hails as some of "the sweetest, friendliest staff around" who know how to give good service.
Not sure if the condoms you've been using are vegan? See which ones leave the "animal" aspect of sex to, well, just the sex part, here.
