My Vegan Journey: How My New Morality Shaped My Relationship With My Family, Friends and the Market

Through interviewing 32 vegans, we investigate the transformation of people who adopt a new moralized consumption practice and its impact on social and marketplace relations. We show a three-step process of relational and practice reconfiguration. We also exemplify how moral habitus and practices are used as distinction in social life.
