Animal cruelty might not be your first thought when you are at your favorite boutique browsing the latest in fashion, but I believe it’s time you and eye have this conversation, do you think?

Why should you but sustainable vegan fashion brands?

More than 50 million animals are slaughtered for fashion use each year. Method of killing these animals include electrocution, gassing, neck-breaking, and other unspeakable ways and traps.

Let’s talk about fur; for example, it is a treat for the environment; there is no such thing as “humane” in the process. About a million seals got killed between 2003 and 2005 to produce fur. The fashion industry contributes to world pollution, high energy cost, wildlife destruction. 

It is in our best interest to start asking questions about where our clothes come from, the process of sourcing the raw materials, and who made them.

Ethical fashion is not just about not wearing clothes from animal products like fur, leather, or wool. It is taking a stance against the inhumane treatment of workers, cruelty, and destruction of the environment.

What animals are used in fashion?

To give you perspective, here is a list of some animals used in fashion:

Minks
Raccoons
Lambs
Rabbits
Baby foxes
Snakes
Foxes
Sheep
Silk worms
Chiru
Cats & Dogs (Mongolian Wool)

Some brands are not vegan because they decide to use recycled leather instead. You will find some in this list because of the aspect of theclothes not ending in the landfill.

Ethical fashion is not always affordable; not all of us can spend 150 dollars on a single item. That’s why you need to check out this list of some of these sustainable vegan fashion brands.
