31 Vegan Quarantine Must-Buys From Amazon
Bored? Experiment with cooking or spruce up your skincare with one of these must-buys from Amazon.

Protective stay-at-home orders are helping to keep many of us—and those around us—safe from the coronavirus pandemic. Lockdown has sparked many-a-post about taking the time to learn something new, but in the midst of a highly stressful situation, it’s 100 percent understandable to just take things day-by-day. Our daily lives have been disrupted and it’s a precarious time for all.

As lines wrap around grocery stores and pharmacies to prevent the further spread of the virus, in some cases, it’s just easier to shop online. Here are some vegan essentials—and then some—to buy from Amazon during the quarantine.
